Landlord's Song - Lyrics

Landlord's Song

Hey man you look like you use some help
I've got a deal for you.

This poor boy comes from Spain
Guitar and case in hand
To try to make a nonest back
In this forgotten land

Through streets all day all night
With a big hole in my shoe
Till a fat old landlord saw my plight
Have a great deal for you

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

Cold water is five a week
But for hot I needn't pay
I am gonna take a nice hot bath
But he took the taps away

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

He brought me to his mansion grand
And let round the back
For a hundred backs you lucky man
I let you rent this shack

I knocked upon my landlord's door
To whinge about the water
This gorgeous girl said please use ours
I'm his wife not his daughter

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

Cold water is five a week
But for hot I needn't pay
I'm gonna take a nice hot bath
But he took the taps away

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

Hey man, what're you doing?

I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine
What did she have in mind?
This water is dear as Spanish wine
But I let you pay in kind

I have to practice every day or else
My wrist gets stiff
I bath and pay rent twice a week
But I pay it to his wife

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

Cold water is five a week
But for hot I needn't pay
I'm gonna take a nice hot bath
But he took the taps away

Just keep playing guitar

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back

Cold water is five a week
But for hot I needn't pay
I'm gonna take a nice hot bath
But he took the taps away

So please landlord
Don't make me pay so much
A poor man I am
Working for a honest back
