    Lyrics

    Did you see his name in the local paper
    Stole a tin of beans from a cut-priced grocery store?
    The judge said, "He must pay"
    So, he put him on probation and the paper gave his name

    Did you see his name in the criminal section
    And the center page gave his name and his address
    They stopped him doing it again
    So, they put him to dishonour and put the man to shame

    He lost his little job
    His employer was absolved of blame
    His world just crumbled down
    Incidently, did you see his name in the obiturary column

    Letters edged in black
    Life was much too hard to live
    So, he brought it to an end
    In his gas-filled maisonette
    Because he couldn't stand the strain

    La la la la la
    Life was much too hard to live
    So, he brought it to an end
    In his gas-filled maisonette
    Because he couldn't stand the strain

    Did you see his name?
    Did you see his name?
    Did you see his name?
