Situation Vacant

Ray Davies, released on Something Else by The Kinks, © Noma Music, Inc./Hi-Count Music, Inc. BMI 1967

.

Suzy and Johnny were happy

Earned enough to pay the rent

But Johnny's mother-in-law had too much ambition

And this made Johnny very upset

So to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

.

Johnny gave up his position

Just to please his mother-in-law

So he left the job where he'd been all his life

He left and turned his back on the dole

.

Now he's looking at the situations vacant

Situations vacant

Just to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

.

Then he had to leave the apartment

And sought a less plush residence

And poor Suzy and Johnny had to skimp and save

Just to help to pay the weekly rent

.

So to keep his little mama satisfied

He went and bought the weekly classified

All for peace and quiet's sake

.

Johnny's got no money

Got no where to go

Johnny's in a great big hole

Suzy's separated, living with her ma

Now little mama's satisfied

.
