lyrics

Just the other day, I saw you in the market in our town
Beside the bric-a-brac
I wasn't spying, I was simply window shopping
I was in the market for some silly bits of nothing
I was hardly buying
And I saw you in our town with a person by your side
A man I can't identify cast a smile your way
And you, to my horror, chose to reciprocate
I threw my lunch away, my Monster Munch in the receptacle

I'm not a greedy man
I'm just a simple Town fan
And I'm familiar with defeat
But in my heart I still believe

Just the other day, I saw you with a record in a bag
It was under plastic and it clearly mattered
You were fresh from Bostocks
You were exiting the Pack Horse
You were showing Barclay Harvest on the jacket through the plastic
And I never can recall other records that you bought
When music's been no draw for you
Why change the attitude
And I speculate with horror who you're casting to this soundtrack
Compositing sonatas while my lousy world's collapsing

I'm not a stupid man
If you're bored, I understand
But I'd hate you to come clean
Because in my heart I still believe

Just the other day, I was drawing off some water for a bath
To drown my sorrows or wash my cares away
I was passing half an hour in monastic contemplation
With some Chateau Neuf de Pape that I'd picked up at the station
Did you forget that I was in
Because I know you phoned your friend
Your newly single bosom chum
Your co-conspirator
And the eddies and the vortices caused by hearing half the story
Only aggravate the horrors of these nightmares that I harbour

I'm not a bitter man
I will forgive you if I can
I may be foolish and naive
But in my heart I still believe

I'm not a greedy man
I'm just a simple Town fan
And I'm familiar with defeat
But in my heart I still believe

I'm not a stupid man
If you're bored, I understand
But I'd hate you to come clean
Because in my heart I still believe

I'm not a bitter man
I will forgive you if I can
I may be foolish and naive
But in my heart I still believe
