The Lyrics

....How do you make a duck sing the blues? ......... Put it on a hot plate till its Bill Withers.....
Paint a shop sign before dawn
I can't see when it's not day
Paint a shop sign before dawn
But the night goes on too long and the lines go astray

Under this sign shop still yawns
Plundering shoppers come by day
Paint a shop sign that's half drawn
But this paint just won't go on with a brush or as a spray

Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow,
Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow,
Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow,
Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow, Won't flow,

Hey, I wanna get job done - go home
Just paint a shop sign before dawn
Paint a shop sign that's half drawn, make the starkness go just flee
Paint a shop sign before dawn
Cos this shop just has no name, no signs of identity

No signs of identity
No signs of identity
No signs of identity
No signs of identity

Funny stuff, LeeBee! Hey, this shop sign painter is quite the moaner, if you think of all those huge graffiti messages that practically pop up overnight. :-)
