Jig-saw Puzzle Lyrics

There's a tramp sittin' on my doorstep
Tryin' to waste his time
With his methylated sandwich
He's a walking clothesline

And here comes the hop's daughter
On the other side
And she looks a trifle jealous
She's been a outcast all her life

Me, I'm waiting so patiently
Lying on the floor
I'm just tryin' to do my jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore

Oh, the gangster looks so fright'ning
With his luger in his hand
But when he gets home to his children
He's a family man

But when it comes to the nitty-gritty
He can shove in his knife
Yes, he really looks quite religious
He's been a outlaw all his life

Me, I'm waiting so patiently
Lying on the floor
I'm just tryin' to do this jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore

Me, I'm waiting so patiently
Lying on the floor
I'm just tryin' to do this jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore

Oh, the singer, he looks angry
At being thrown to the lions
And the bass player, he looks nervous
About the girls outside

And the drummer, he's so shattered
Tryin' to keep on time
And the guitar players look damaged
They've been outcasts all their lives

Me, I'm waiting so patiently
Lying on the floor
I'm just tryin' to do this jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore

Oh, there's twenty thousand grandmas
Wave their hankies in the air
I'm burnin' up their pensions
And shoutin', "It's not fair"

There's a regiment of soldiers
Standin' lookin' on
And the queen is bravely shouting
"What the hell is goin' on?"

With a blood curdling, tally-ho
She charged into the ranks
And blessed all those grandmas who
With their dying breaths screamed, "Thanks"

Me, I'm just waiting so patiently
With my woman on the floor
We're just tryin' to do this jig-saw puzzle
Before it rains anymore
