Pearl's Cafe Lyrics

Pearl's Cafe by Specials  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Pearl's Cafe You saw a woman in a cafe, lips of crimson, yellow grin
Her shoes were wrong and she looked extremely thin
Her jewels were faked, she'd had a rinse, her hair was greyish blue
She looked ashamed when she explained to you
It ain't easy when there's no-one to lean on
It ain't easy when there's nobody there
It ain't easy when your lovers are all gone
Nobody there, nobody cares
The pubs were closed she'd got nowhere to go when she'd spilled her tea
Have you never thought "One day that could be me"?
Her temper changed, she looked so deranged, her perfume turned to gin
You looked at her and she began to sing
It's all a load of bollocks
It's all a load of bollocks
It's all a load of bollocks and bollocks to it all
You tell me you think that they should lock her away and scrape the make-up off her skin
Then we'd see the warts around her chin
She tried to keep her looks but lost her mind (It's all a load of bollocks)
When she lost her youth and grace (It's all a load of bollocks)
(It's all a load of bollocks) Your words were just an insult to her face (It's all a load of bollocks)
It ain't easy when there's no-one to lean on (It's all a load of bollocks)
It ain't easy when there's nobody there (It's all a load of bollocks)
It ain't easy when your lovers are all gone (It's all a load of bollocks) and bollocks to it all
When I thought I saw you, I really thought you were a wet dream come true
Now I know that you don't care, about somebody else's nightmare
