The Bottlewash Rag    Flek-O'Reilly

 

The night that you left me I didn’t sleep a wink

 

But hey, just wait a minute! It isn’t what you think

 

I couldn’t sleep for all the noise that was going on

 

Of the neighbours celebrating when they found out you were gone

 

 

My shirts are washing whiter, my flowers are in bloom

 

Even the cats outside my window sing in tune,

 

Got no need for changin’, I’m happy as I am

 

Since you’re not at home I’m such a home lovin’ man

 

 

I’m stepping out!

 

Like a blind man who can see

 

I’m stepping out!

 

Breath the air of liberty

 

I’m stepping out!

 

Each days an open door

 

And everything looks brighter than before

 

 

You pushed me further than my patience could endure

 

You took me lower than I’ve ever been before.

 

Times I felt so torn up I nearly lost my mind

 

But now my sun is rising and I’ve left it all behind

I’m stepping out!

 

Like a blind man who can see

 

 

I’m stepping out!

 

Breath the air of liberty

 

I’m stepping out!

 

No time for howling at the moon

 

‘Cos the future’s looking rosier than June.

 

I'm steppin' out!
