Codeine Velvet Club - Begging Bowl Blues lyrics

Windy old head, I sang along
With the words that she said, happy and bad
Where goes the time? She asked me once, oh
And if you don't mind give back my heart when you go

Begging bowl blues wrapped 'round my head
Like a fistful of news nobody reads
Me and her name I can't recall
I was never the same after she left me

And oh, I missed her so
Never thought much of her reason to go
And well, she cast a spell
Under I fell in a useless hello

Useless old day, wishing the hours
Would take me away just for a while
Nobody's crook, stealing an answer
Oh, why does he look drunk as the day he was born

Ragged and torn
Lives for the money these days, what a joke
And once twice is a sin
Couldn't get in with the elegant folk

I cannot wait any longer
And I cannot claim to be free
Whenever it seems like I'm losing
The begging bowl blues follow me

And she cannot say that she's happy
And I can't be sure if I care
I got wrapped up in the money
And the begging bowl blues kept me there
