This song is a cover of "Neat Neat Neat" by The Damned.
Can a man be a mystery man?
Like a doll, like a baby doll
It can't be found not anyway
It can't be found no way at all

A distant man can't sympathise
He can't uphold his distant laws
Due to form on that today
I got a feeling then I hear this call

I said neat, neat, neat - can't afford no cannon
I said neat, neat, neat - can't afford a gun at all
Neat, neat, neat - she can't afford no cannon
I said, neat, neat, neat - she got no name to call

No crime if there ain't no laws
No more cops left to mess you around
No more dreams of mystery chords
No more sight to bring you down

I got a crazy, I got a thought in my mind
My m-m-m-mind's on when she falls asleep
Feeling fine in her restless time
And these words upon me creep

I said neat, neat, neat - can't afford no cannon
I said neat, neat, neat - can't afford a gun at all
I said neat, neat, neat - she can't afford no cannon
I said, neat, neat, neat - she got no name to call

Can a man be a mystery man?
Like a doll, like a baby doll
It can't be found not anyway
It can't be fun no way at all

A distant man can't sympathise
Can't uphold his distant laws
Due to form on that today
I got a feeling that I hear this call

I said neat, neat, neat - can't afford no cannon
I said neat, neat, neat - she got no name to call
I said neat, neat, neat - she can't afford no cannon
Neat, neat, neat - she can't afford a gun at all
Neat, neat, neat - she got no name at all
I said neat, neat, neat - she can't afford no cannon
I said neat, neat, neat - she got no name to call
