Tux on, tux on, tux on, tux on, tux on

He has eyes down at the bingo

on that lucky Friday night


The match was rained off Saturday

but the panel came in bright

And on Sunday your mates were toasting you

With champagne down the pub

And on Monday you went to London

to pick the check up with your mum

You had a tux on, you had a tux on


The first time you had a tux on, lucky man


There's a photo on the mantelpiece,

when you bought your first guitar

And your girlfriend came to see you

when you were the rising star

You knew your luck was holding

when you filled the local hall

The first time and the last time

that you thought you had control

You had a tux on, lucky man, you had a tux on


You got a tux on, tux on


Now you're touring stadiums,

you've let it go too far


Standing with your manager,

your back to every bar

Burning all your credit cards,

chopping out the pain


Crowding into toilets with a host of your

new-found friends

You got a tux on, nothing's changed,

you got a tux on


Lucky man with a tux on,


you're still the same with a tux on


It was eyes down in the parlor,

they prayed it wouldn't rain

A brother pulled his cuffs down

to hide the blue-black vein

His razor'd more than lines out,

they found him just too late

The final performance,

the main man lies in state

With a tux on, look at him now with a tux on


The last time with a tux on,


take him away with a tux on


Somewhere in a tenement,

in a well-thumbed magazine


Someone finds a photograph that triggers

of a dream


The uniform that symbolizes the comfortable life


He's always known his luck's in,

but now he's found the drive

He's got a tux on, look at him now with a tux on


He's gonna get one with a tux on,


free admission with a tux on

Get it anyway with a tux on


He's got a tux on, the easy way with a tux on, tux on
