The Lyrics

Last night I called a cab at the supermarket. They said it would arrive in 20 minutes. After 45 minutes, I called a different company. They came in 10. All the time I was waiting...
(instrumental opening)

Well, I don't know why I'm stuck here tonight.
But the taxi didn't come here all right.
There's some losers wiping out on skateboards.
And this old bat sits there smoking some more.

Chavs to the left of me.
Smokers to the right.
Here I am, stuck waiting here for a cab.

Yes, I'm stuck waiting here for a cab
to bring home the grocery bags I grab.
They're heavy and I don't have a car.
And those skateboarders are going too far.

Chavs to the left of me.
Smokers to the right.
Here I am, stuck waiting here for a cab.

Well, I started out with calling
but the taxi is so late again.
And these chavs, they're laughin', rappin'.
Lady, put out that cigarette
please!
Please!

Trying to make some sense of it all.
But I can see that it makes no sense at all.
That dope just wiped out on his skateboard.
And I don't think that I can take anymore.

Chavs to the left of me.
Smokers to the right.
Here I am, stuck waiting here for a cab.

Well, I started out in daylight
but now night has fallen on me here, man.
And that taxicab is crawlin'.
Why won't it come back? I say
please!
Please!

Well, I don't know when it's coming tonight.
And another smoke that old bag will light.
It's a night that's bad beyond all compare.
And I'd like to push those chavs down the stairs.

Chavs to the left of me.
Smokers to the right.
Here I am, stuck waiting here for a cab.
Yes, I'm stuck waiting here for a cab.
Stuck waiting here for a cab.

(instrumental close)
Okay, one of the kids had long hair, and none of them was wearing a hoodie, but they were all what the English would call "chavs." I really, really don't like chavs.

You must have had a rough night last night, Mike! I also hate the fact that they tell you they'll arrive at a certain time and they take a lot longer than expected! I can relate very well. I was trying to wait for a bus in Newark and it was 5pm at night (winter at the time). I got scared and was alone. It was dangerous I was about to cry. I'm glad you made it to the night OK, though. Nice of you to get away from the smokers and cavs as well! LOL! Here's a cab fare of $5.55!
