Back In The Depot

This song is by Alex Harvey and appears on the album The Mafia Stole My Guitar (1979).

Lower away the lifeboats
Shark repellants been diluted twice
Condemnned parachutes in the locker
Drying up the ice
Christopher is cryin'
One more weeping child
Martha in the corn bush
Driving my compass wild

But back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand
Back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand

Hoist the jolly roger
He's a rascal when he's mad
There ain't no friend like an old one
Now ain't that just too bad
He who wakes in the den of the tiger
He shall no sleep alone

(Chinese sounds)

But back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand
Back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand

Eye witnesses seeing double
Streamlined look in the bar
Tell my darling Corrie
I love her most of all
Costello is on a murder
And he's pushin it really slow
Bassinette for his baby
The one he used to know

But back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand
Back in the depot
I gotta stopwatch in my hand
