attitude chicken lyrics – boomtown rats

later on that evening when
i thought i’d had enough
i sat down in a restaurant and
over powdered drugs
i ordered up some dew-soaked lettuce
picked by virgin hands
nestling on a bed of
pearl encrusted clams
well the waiter’s name was renee and
he told me how his aunt
who had 47 children
and how they’d always planned
to grow the smallest vegetables in
all the kingdom’s land
“they’re poor,” he said “but happy and
well that’s what really counts”
and every evening after
their 20 hour day
they’d sleep content imagining
that restaurant far away
where fat f*cks in designer suits
would order over deals
the smallest portions of these
tiny morsels for their meals
