Songtekst

Had dinner with a softcore pornographer at a mansion in Earls Court
He wore a dressing gown and a short fat beard
He showed me pictures of balding cowboys and a chicken with false teeth
All those horseflesh hustlers stood around looking weird

I met a Sid Vicious lookalike and he was six foot four
Had spikes on his dog collar made of solder
He wore a dirty old gaberdine mac and a ring with a rat
He was 17 but he looked about ten years older... that was

Back in the old country, back in the old country
Back in the old country, back in the old country

10am one Sunday, Herman hadn't been near a bed
And he was knocking back rum and tea just to keep awake
He had a black string tie and a gleam in his eye
He look so wired and wicked it made my day

Headed up to Edinburgh on the Great North Road
In a lefthand German Rabbit with no brakes
We took a two-room tenement flat but we soon got rid of that
When it was our turn to wash the common and pay the rates... that was

Back in the old country, back in the old country
Back in the old country, back in the old country

Flooded drains on a hot dark night in Kreuzberg
Taxis splashing by in the neon light
We got halfway across the red and white concrete blocks
When a telephone rang and the major said ' Tut mir leid'... wish I was

Back in the old country, back in the old country
Back in the old country, back in the old country
