lyrics

Fly Tipper

Like a fly tipper
She discarded my love
Like a flea-bitten mattress
Or an old oven glove
And she left me helpless
She left me cold
She left me dying
By the side of the road

She was a rare find so I put in a bid
She was known far and wide for the things that she did
And she saw I was lonely so she gave me a home
But she tossed me aside like a rolling stone

Like a fly tipper
She discarded my love
Like a flea-bitten mattress
Or an old oven glove
And she left me helpless
She left me cold
She left me dying
By the side of the road

Chocolates and flowers weren’t helping my cause
No reply to my letters, no return of my calls
I said, “Come on baby, don’t throw me away
When I could be there for a rainy day”

Like a fly tipper
She discarded my love
Like a flea-bitten mattress
Or an old oven glove
And she left me helpless
She left me cold
She left me dying
By the side of the road

So here ends my story but I’ll give her a tip
Don’t throw out the good stuff just recycle it
Now I’m washed and I’m cleaned up and I’m back on the scene
And I’m waiting to be picked up if you know what I mean

Like a fly tipper
She discarded my love
Like a flea-bitten mattress
Or an old oven glove
And she left me helpless
She left me cold
She left me dying
By the side of the road
