In the Middle of the Night (2009 Remaster) Lyrics

 

Artist:madness

Songs Title:in the middle of the night

Nice man george newsagent on the corner

Not very rich but never any poorer

Jaunty old george a happy sixty-three

Not very tall but healthier than me

He whistles timeless tunes as he saunters down the street

Springs in his legs and elastic in his feet

But in the middle of the night

He steals through your garden

Gives your hosiery a fright

And doesn't say pardon

As soft as a breeze

With an arm full of underwear

On his hands and knees

 

Dreams about the knicker scare

Hello there george newsagent on the corner

Hows the old car yes the climates getting warmer

Chatty old george as you get your morning paper

Read about the knicker thief underwear taker

Bids you good day as you wander out the door

Never closes early always cleans the floor

But when darkness hits the town

 

And theres washing on your line

 

Get your knickers down

 

Before the dreaded sign

 

When the clock strikes eight

And you're snuggled up in bed

Hell be at the garden gate

Filling underwear with dread

 

Nice man george newsagent on the corner

He was closed today maybe gone to mow the lawn

I had to go further down the road to get me current bun

Hello - isnt that george on page one

No it couldn't be but yes it is

Difficult to see from these photofits

But they are after him

 

Of that you can be sure

Theyve called him on the phone

 

Theyve knocked on his door

 

A-but hes gone away

Gone to stay with some mates

 

He got the papers early

And saw his own face
