Government Bookstore Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Not the hospital gown you're wearing
Or the bad luck that dogs us down
What's done is done
They burned the old place down
Verse 2
Chased me allround the reference section
Tried to catch the attendants eye
Ten years on the night shift
Well I don't work tonight
Verse 3
All my books are on loan
Since the Government Book store closed
Verse 4
Well we met in the hotel lobby
The executor read aloud the will
No wake, no eulogy
From this pathetic crowd
Verse 5
It's no Bloomsbury afternoon
Just a couple of soaks and the villagefool
Verse 6
Well they closedown the whole
Mainbuilding. Boared up and the main
Door staying shut
Used to steal things
From this now empty shop
