SITUATIONS VACANT

SITUATIONS VACANT SAYS THE SIGN ABOVE THE DOOR
BUT THE GAFFER IS A LECHER JUST LOOKING FOR A WHORE
GO AND TELL HIM WHAT TO DO, REALLY MAKE HIM SMILE
WONDER IF YOU ASK HIM WILL HE STAND IN SINGLE FILE

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MY SITUATION
WHAT BECAME OF MY SOCIAL STATION
WHERE ARE MY FRIENDS THEY'VE TAKEN THEM AWAY
THEY SAY THE BALL'S IN MY COURT BUT I AIN'T GOING TO PLAY

THE RAIN COMES DOWN IN THE AVENUE I WISH I HAD A SMOKE
THE PRICES IN THE WINDOWS JUST REMIND ME THAT I'M BROKE
PICTURES LOOKING DESPERATE NO TIME TO FEEL FORLORN
CAN'T EVEN FIND MY WAY HOME 'COS THE BUS TIMETABLES TORN

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MY SITUATION
WHAT BECAME OF MY SOCIAL STATION
WHERE ARE MY FRIENDS THEY'VE TAKEN THEM AWAY
THEY SAY THE BALL'S IN MY COURT BUT I AIN'T GOING TO PLAY

I'VE BEEN TO THE SAME BAR THAT I'VE BEEN TO NOW FOR YEARS
THE DRINKS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE BUT THE DARKNESS HIDES MY FEARS
I REALLY CAN'T GO ON LIKE THIS BUT WHAT ELSE CAN I DO
LIFE TO ME MEANS NOTHING WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?
