There Goes a Tenner

Okay remember, okay remember
That we have just allowed
Half an hour,
To get in, do it and get out.
The sense of adventure
Is changing to danger
I go in,
The crime begins
My excitement
Turns into fright
All my words fade
What am I gonna say?
Mustn't give the game away
We're waiting
We got the job sussed
This shops shut for business
The look-out has parked the car
But kept the engine running
Three beeps means trouble's coming
I hope you remember,
To treat the gelignite tenderly for me
I'm having dreams about things
Not going right,
Let's leave in plenty of time tonight
Both my partners
Act like actors,
You are Bogart
He is George Raft
That leaves Cagney and me.
We're waiting
You blow the safe up
Then all I know is I wake up,
Covered in rubble,
One of the Rabble,
Needs Mummy,
The Government will never find the money,
I've been here all day,
A star in strange ways
Apart from a photoeraph
They'll get nothing from me
Not until they let me see
My solicitor.
Ooh I remember
That rich windy weather
When you would carry me,
Pockets floating in the breeze
There goes a tenner
Hey look, there's a fiver
There's a ten shilling note
Remember them?
That's when we used to vote for him.
