away today

the postman didn't come today
said he had to run
'twas the builder scared me away -
he knowd what I'd done

the milkman didn't come today
story of my life
though they say 'is misses is playing away
so he could do without the strife

the paperboy didn't come today
and neither did the paper
I think the cops took him away
so maybe I'll get it later

and the baker didn't come today
so I can't even 'ave me bread
said she just needed to get away
(into the postman's bed)

the bin man didn't come today
said he might not come at all
so who's gonna take my rubbish away
it's bleedin' six feet tall

the gardener didn't come today
and neither did the plummer
but seems men like that should stay away
the dirty rotten buggers

the electrician didn't come today
to fix my old doorbell
so I wrote a note that said gone away
and you can go to hell
