Tommy's a confirmed alcoholic

His usual social worker is Jane

In the old detoxification centre

Her efforts help ease the pain


His life has been a shambles

Job and flat gone, depressed,

Jane strives to fix the mess

Do for Tommy what's best


Discharged from detox, he's

Moved away from the edge

Jane's secured him a bed-sit

Got him to take the pledge

Those Low Down Bottle Blues

Those Low Down Bottle Blues


The day the clock struck thirteen

We took it as a sign

That the world might be in peril

So we all broke out the wine

But it probably was nothing

Just a poor miscounted chime

An end to our sobriety

And not the end of time


The night the stars rearranged themselves

In a moonlit sky

We all dived for the whisky bottle

 2 for 1 on the latest lotion

Life is lived in blurred slow motion

With matted mouth and the smallest notion

You can't beat this 

Dote on 

Choke on

Smoke on



And float on

Christmas Calamities

It's nine 0'clock it's up the dancers

Time for the siblings to settle

With the kids snuggled up tight

Into the attic you climb

The operation at full fettle


With all the parcels of toys and treats

Retrieved from the dusty enclave

You soon feel guilty about the santa imposter

Who you claim resides in a cave


While the kids snooze soundly in their pit

The gifts ...

what crisis?

what crisis?


nowadays they have to pinch the ends

of their cigarettes before they cross the threshold

no longer allowed to herd the crumbling swarms

of ash across the gingham veldt


outside the window, on the pavement,  lies a bible

and the radio declares their readiness is high

seems like a good night to let the smokers

in and warm around a last ember...
