I got lost in the back streets trying to get here tonight
Police were asking questions
Took me to the wrong place twice
They even lost my passport and I forgot my name and town
But now I'm here by the water
Put the money down

Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down down

There are people killing chickens
Hero's getting pushed around round round
Don't know if I can trust you
You try to put me down

Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down down
Put the money down
Put it in a tin cup

Take a glass of this light brown ale
And a purple pill
If the police don't get you to
Sure as hell the purple pill will
Oh Mummy Mummy
Please may I go downtown
He's gonna walk on the water
Put the money down
Just put your money down

Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down down
Put the money down
There are people killing chickens
And Hero's getting pushed around round round
Don't know if I can trust you
You try to shoot me down
Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down down
Put the money down

'Twas a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell.
But the five loaves and the fishes ain't gonna be much help
Cos I've got a hungry juggler here who's got to keep ahead
Before he walks over the water he's gotta have his bread
Put it in a tin cup
I got lost in the back streets trying to get here tonight
I had to ask for directions
Got me to the wrong place twice
I even lost my passport and I forgot my name and town
But now I'm here by the water
Put the money down

Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down
Put the money down
There are people killing chickens
And Hero's getting pushed around round round
Don't know if I can trust you
You try to shoot me down
Before I walk on the water
Put the money down down down
Put the money down
