Early Bird

This song is by Mark Knopfler and appears on the iTunes release of the album Get Lucky (2009).

Got no books in my house
Got no time for those
No room in my closets
Closet's full of clothes

Garage full of wheels babe
Boat house full of boat
The lifestyle ideal babe
That's what gets my vote
All the Villa's on the hillsides
Gotta have a view of the sea
Villas of the empire
Way back in history

They have slaves for
The galleys and the kitchens
Gardens and the vines
Slaves for the beautiful people
Bring water food and wine

A slave to tie your bib
Another one to carry it
So now I'll take my crib
I dig my chariot dig my crib

And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home, dig my crib
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home

England calls me vulgar
I'd call myself refined
Good bye old England
Simon's off to sunny climes
Look who's doin' it now babe look who's doin' it now
Look who's doin' it now babe look who's doin' it now

Always was an early bird
With something on the side
Better buy this better buy that
Maybe let that baby ride
Out here every day it's hot
And I'm talking to my men
Working this working that
Working on my master plan

A slave to tie my bib
Another one to carry it
So now I'll take my crib
I dig my chariot dig my crib

And my long black Cadillac, coming forth to carry me home, dig my crib
And my long black Cadillac coming forth to carry me home

Now here's the hot-tub
Here's the gym
Here's the pool that I swam in
Up the stairs my footprints led
To the bedroom to my bed
Up the stairs my footprints led
To where I lay my bosom head

Sleep the long sleep of the dead
I'm an early bird that's what I said

Early bird
Early bird
Oh I'm an early bird
