    "Tramp" Lyrics

    Mungo Jerry

    The sun was low, and the shadow was cold
    On the pale drawn face, that was wrinkled and old
    A newspaper coat, hanging loose 'round his throat
    And the shoes on his feet, strips of leather tied up with rope
    His uncombed hair, and eyes that would stare
    At the people passing by, who didn't know or didn't care

    This poor old man he's all alone
    He's got no money or no home of his own
    The back street's his kitchen
    The footpath's his hall

    And the chalk on the brick work
    Are the pictures on his wall
    He lays down his head
    On the pavement that's his bed
    And when he sleeps, his dreams fade away

    He walks down the street, with his hands in his coat
    Looking down at his feet, for a dog-end he could smoke
    He thinks about food, good drinking and good fun
    As he searches through the dustbins, his life almost done
