Saint Etienne - Last Orders For Gary Stead Lyrics



Tempers fraying in the hat and fan
Gets so hot in there, even in November
Heated words from slicked-back hair
It's too small a world for some people to share

Now Gary stares at an empty chair
Told her "five, or ten, and he'd join her out there"
Not again, she's not going in
She just sighs...

It's only half nine
There's time
Time for drinking
And still
More time
'Til he gets to thinking of her

She's in
Two minds
Maybe she'll board up her door

He's into pints
And that's how it goes

It's guaranteed he's a funny man
You can bet your life that he'll bring the house down
Always plays such a winning hand
He just cools it down
They should knight him for it

But outside
His former wife
Starts a solo drive
She's so tired of waiting
When he crawls in
Will she give him a surprise?

It's only half nine
There's time
Time for drinking
And still
More time
'Til he gets to thinking of her

She's in
Two minds
Maybe she'll board up her door

He's into pints
And that's how it goes

    Tempers fraying in the hat and fan
    Gets so hot in there, even in November
    Heated words from slicked-back hair
    It's too small a world for some people to share

    Now Gary stares at an empty chair
    Told her "five, or ten, and he'd join her out there"
    Not again, she's not going in
    She just sighs...

    It's only half nine
    There's time
    Time for drinking
    And still
    More time
    'Til he gets to thinking of her

    She's in
    Two minds
    Maybe she'll board up her door

    He's into pints
    And that's how it goes

    It's guaranteed he's a funny man
    You can bet your life that he'll bring the house down
    Always plays such a winning hand
    He just cools it down
    They should knight him for it

    But outside
    His former wife
    Starts a solo drive
    She's so tired of waiting
    When he crawls in
    Will she give him a surprise?

    It's only half nine
    There's time
    Time for drinking
    And still
    More time
    'Til he gets to thinking of her

    She's in
    Two minds
    Maybe she'll board up her door

    He's into pints
    And that's how it goes
