.

Standing in the dock at Southampton

trying to get to Holland or France

The man in the mac said

you've got to go back

You know they didn't even give us a chance

.

Christ you know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me

.

Finally made the plane into Paris

Honeymooning down by the Seine

Peter Brown call to say

you can make it O.K.

You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain

.

Christ you know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me

.

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton

Talking in our beds for a week

The newspapers said

say what're you doing in bed

I said we're only trying to get us some peace

.

Christ you know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me

.

Saving up your money for a rainy day

giving all your clothes to charity

Last night the wife said

Oh boy when you're dead

you don't take nothing with you but your soul, think

.

Made a lightning trip to Vienna

Eating chocolate cake in a bag

The newspapers said

she's gone to his head

They look just like to Gurus in drag

.

Christ you know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me

.

Caught the early plane back to London

Fifty acorns tied in a sack

The men from the press

said we wish you successs

It's good to have the both of you back

.

Christ you know it ain't easy

You know how hard it can be

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me

The way things are going

They're going to crucify me
