"well the stale chips are up and the hopes stakes are down,
it's these ignorant faces that bring this town down,
and i sighed and sunken with pride,
as i passed myself down on my knees,
yes i passed myself down on my knees.
now tell me what can you want now you've got it all,
the whole scene is obscene,
time will strip it away.
a year and a day.
and bill bones,
bill bones knows what i mean."
