The Stranglers - Payday Lyrics


Socrates was made to pay for all his deeds
He had to drink the bottle
It brought him down on his knees

Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away
Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away today

Alexander was never the same
After he speared his old companion
It led to Ptolemy and Cleopatra

Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away
Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away today

You took everything of value
You took everything of value
All I ever cherished
Now it will poison you too

Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away
Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away today

Now that the fog has lifted the sun has come along
Bringing with it a whole new song
Now that the fog has lifted the sun has come along
Angels despairing of me
Sweetheart you never raised
A diamond laden finger
With your golden encrusted heart
You’re all bisted and twitter

Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away
Payday
It’s mayday
I just pray you’ll go away today
