COUNTING THE DAYS

Is it a Judeo-Christian overhang ?

cos it’s something I can’t understand

so many times I wait in line

for what I like to think is mine

I’m counting the days

A notion comes into my head

we’d be better off when someone’s dead

freezing cold flat damp on the walls

I’m paying Pete but I’m robbing Paul

still I’m counting the days

THE MAD MAN RANTS, TELLS U 2 BUCK UP

CAN’T YOU SEE, IT’S JUST THEIR COCKUP

YOU STICK YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS

IT’S ALL TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO HEAR

7 6 5 4 3 2 1

WAHOO BABY! THE PAIN IS GONE

BY COUNTING THE DAYS

Stale bread today but jam tomorrow

the sweat I pay will let me borrow

& it’s a long long time till the lunch bell rings

and it’s my stomach you hear rumb-ling

cos I’m counting the days

And it is written in the stars

men are from Venus women from Mars

one day I’ll walk into a bar

and she will come and kiss the scars

yes I’m counting the days

AND THE DOCTOR COMES, AND REPEATS IT ALL

EVERYTHING HE TRIED TO TEACH YOU

ALL THE TIMES HE TRIED TO REACH YOU

YOU TELL HIM HE CAN GO AWAY

YOU’RE NOT THE ONE WHO’S SICK TODAY

7 6 5 4 3 2 1

WAHOO BABY! THE PAIN IS GONE

BY COUNTING THE DAYS

And when I look into your face

I know you understand

And when I look into your face

I know that you know

Then the boy-girl bounces into view, she says

(there’s) so many things I’m gonna do

the lovestruck Kraut is her enthuser

she makes me feel like such a loser

just counting the days

AND YOU SHIFT YOUR EYES

AND YOU TURN YOUR HEAD

COS YOU WALKED ON BY THE RAGGED BED

AND SHE SAYS:

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DREAM OF HEAVEN

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE LIKE THIS

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

COME ON BABY, TAKE THE TRIP

& STOP
