The Lyrics

This is a spoof af the book "City Boy - Fear and Loathing in the Square Mile about the life and times of a utilities analyst in the City of London '' it's quite funny in the Liar's Poker Genre.....

Sing this to Life is for rent by Dido

Well my brother set me up with a good job at Desdner Bank
But it wasn’t really very long before it hit me
That the business that I worked in really stank
And some of the things I had to do were rather shitty

But I thought, yes I thought

That my life was for rent
So I became a City Boy
What did I care if it was quite bent
When that sweet cocaine was such a joy

I used to hang round getting stoned out on the beach
Livin’ the life of a real cool chilled out hippy
And I used to think that working was a bitch
But after a while something very deep down hit me

I don’t like life in a tent
Being poor you know just isn’t me
And I deserve something more so off I went
to analyse utilities

Cos my life was for rent
And I became a city boy
What did I care that it was all quite bent
When that sweet cocaine was such a joy

But soon I was beyond the pale
And I began to burn and crash
Until I found the Holy Grail
A better way to trash and cash
Now my book is selling fast

Cos my life now is for sale
And I don’t care who gets hurt
But I knew that no way could it fail
Cos I really had dished the dirt

Cos my life was for rent
And I became a City Boy
I didn’t care that it was all really bent
When the sweet cocaine was such a joy
When the sweet cocaine was such a joy
When the sweet cocaine was such a joy
