Roaring Jack : Playing For The Traffic

From the album The Cat Among the Pigeons, Mighty Boy, 1988.

He was playing for the traffic and the nine to fivers
Tooraloo you’re bound for Botany Bay
And he gave more to this world than all the penny pinching bastards
That turned around and looked the other way…

Bonus!

Too many Florence Nightingales
Not enough Robin Hoods
Too many halos not enough heroes
Coming up with the goods

So you thought you’d like to change the world
Decided to stage a jumble sale
For the poor, for the poor

So you thought you’d like to see them healed
Got
Blue Peter to stage an appeal
For the poor, for the poor

It’s a waste of time if you know what they mean
Try shaking your box in front of the Queen
‘Cause her purse is fat and bursting at the seams
It’s a waste of time if you know what they mean…

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2020 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
