Robyn Hitchcock – The Beauty Of Earl’s Court Lyrics

Money makes the world go wrong
So what, who cares?
Gonna waste some time tonight
I haven’t in many years

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court

Facing the Australians
It happens every day
Sucking on your aliens
And pissing two and away [?]

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court

Like the canyons of New York
But not as filthy or cool
It’s the kind of place that
They don’t tell you about in school

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court

[?] to afternoons
Where nothing matters at all
See the rubber gloves inflating
Poking out of the wall

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court

Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court

I’ve got to find another home
I’ve got to find another home
And ’til morning comes I wake in bed
Look to see that I’m not dead

Start out young and beautiful
End up old and diseased
They can cage your real age
You’re full of rings like a tree

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court

Standing by the underground
The bubbles rise in the air
Gonna waste some time tonight
I haven’t done that in years

That’s the beauty of Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court, Earl’s court
