lyrics

He has a suit adorned by the modern bachelor
A brand new suit bought on credit from a strip centre
He ties up his laces plucks a petal from the nearest vase
A brand new liver and some lungs just to test his jaw
He’s a sight for sore eyes waiting for the signal to say surprise
Thom the John he’s up and he’s on and he’s off on one

Introduced in the nude to a part of town
The creases and the kinks of a dressing down
Covered in gauze and covered in chocolate
A big hen pecking round the yard for his just dessert
He’s a sight for sore eyes waiting for the signal to say surprise
Thom the John he’s up and he’s on and he’s off on one

Kick off your shoes
Cash your pay cheque
Popping bubblewrap
Nickel and dime
Out patient
At the train station
Get your ticket to the sea side
You’ve fallen on the rocks
I think it’s kinda sexy
Get off your face
You got to get it off your chest
Thom the john just a name

left in the dark
wide of the mark
names have been changed
the place is the same

Exit left at the junction off the motorway
He takes a seat in his suite at the motel chain
Promises are kept and promises don’t turn out receipts
A bra and a paddle at the bottom of the quilted sheets
He’s a sight for sore eyes waiting for the signal to say surprise
Thom the John he’s up and he’s on and he’s off on one
He’s a sight for sore eyes waiting for the signal to say surprise
Thom the John he’s up and he’s on and he’s off on one
Thom the John he’s up and he’s on and he’s off on one
