The Lyrics

same name but my version of Georges thoughts on the cockamamie business, have retained one or two of his lines though
bust my back writing songs, broke my confidence believe me,
Can't even walk in the shops, or the island, or swim in the deep blue sea,
all this madness surrounding me, lost my privacy not my sanity,

In this cockamamie business.

They may say ohnothimagen, oh sounds like he's in pain,
with Patti I parted company, here goes the dark hoarse again and again,
driven half way round the bend, just wanted the tour to just end,

In this cockamamie business.

but with my history and position, every note I may sing,
will always be compared with long time ago when I was fab and king,
but one must have some persistance, cause I can't get any resistance,

In This cockamamie business.

There are the stones and wings, listen now you may miss em,
while I sit in the garden with a hole in the thumb of my mitten,
some get rabies, some get fleas, some got insurable disease,

From this cockamamie business.

everybodys after as many hits as they can get,
top of the charts they hope to stay,
but in 2 years will this music be kept?
benefactors, avant garde artist, robbing beatle who just past us,

With their cockamamie business.

Well I am a simple man, content to remain like that,
How you all can be so easily mislead,
Somedays your pretty sharp, as the pickets that border your hedge,
your on top of your cliff, don't fall of the edge,

didn't want to be a star, just wanted to play a bit of guitar,
In this cockamamie business.
