    Nice man George, newsagent on the corner
    Not very rich, but never any poorer
    Jaunty old George, a happy sixty-three
    Not very tall, but healthier than me
    He whistles timeless tunes as he saunters down the street
    Springs in his legs and elastic in his feet

    But in the middle of the night, he steals through your garden
    Gives your hosiery a fright and doesn't say pardon
    As soft as a breeze with an arm full of underwear
    On his hands and knees, dreams about the knicker scare

    Hello there George, newsagent on the corner
    How's the old car, yes the climate's getting warmer
    Chatty old George as you get your morning paper
    Read about the knicker thief, underwear taker
    Bids you 'Good day', as you wander out the door
    Never closes early, always cleans the floor

    But when darkness hits the town and there's washing on your line
    Get your knickers down, before the dreaded sign
    When the clock strikes eight and you're snuggled up in bed
    He'll be at the garden gate, filling underwear with dread

    Nice man George, newsagent on the corner
    He was closed today, maybe gone to mow the lawn
    I had to go further down the road to get me current bun
    Hello, isn't that George on page one ?
    No it couldn't be, but yes it is
    Difficult to see from these photofits

    But they are after him, of that you can be sure
    They've called him on the phone, they've knocked on his door
    a-But he's gone away, gone to stay with some mates
    He got the papers early and saw his own face
    Thanks to Noam for the contribution to this song.
