I’ve gotta tell you about this thing
that happened to me the other morning I
went out turned his party and his cute
sister was there so I ended up waking up
over in Bethnal Green but you know those
times when you hate yourself for going
there and you can’t get out quick enough
the kind of situation that might have
you taking desperate measures
well it were one of them so I found
myself walking down free Colts lighting
in the early hours and as I got to the
railway arch this woman calls me from
across the road
she’s with a group of people and they’re
carrying this big fucking box well I’ll
go over she asked me if I’d open doing
this upset she looks like she’s been
crying all night south being a bit of a
I put my shoulder under one corner and
we set off carrying this box between us
it’s fucking heavy well after a while I
says well you go in it a dead body and
it wouldn’t be awkward thing they study
looking bloke on the other corner says
it’s so brother in it did too much
charlie didn’t he he never was good at
sharing I decided not to ask why the
need to move him we carried on I mean
I’m fully committed now and I I’ve got
the brothers weight bearing down on my
shoulder – right no way out
after we gone a bit more I ventured to
ask how much fervor are we going to take
him then the dodgy looking bloke says
yeah sorry about the way he was a fat
bastard we would have taken the bus but
devold on strike
eventually we come to a block of flats
we set the brother down and we’ll have
thanks me and ask me the name so I tell
her it’s Francis
that’s a Catholic in a minute she says
he’s also then she asked me if I’ll say
something something nice for her brother
well I didn’t know what to say I mean I
never made a visa but dodgy-looking
bloats looking at me now with some
expectations so I put me owned in the
box and I said a Hail Mary I mean
they’re quick and named I learnt about
its breaking into a full-blown our
father across myself and then the dodgy
looking blokes asked if I want to come
up for a spliff and a sandwich this time
I declined and making my excuses of
walked away that’s what I mean about
London you just don’t get shit like that
