I could be a bus driver
But I don't like buses

I could be a home carer
But I don't like fussies
I could be a poker player but
I can't make flushes

I could be an office worker
But it gets too stuffy
I could be a chef de partie
But my pigeon never blushes
I could be a catwalk model
But I don't shake tushes
I could be a hotel worker but
I don't do dishes

I could search for the holy grail
Where my blood runs and gushes
I could be a million things
Do almost anything
Die slow live old

    This song is the title track for the more rockier - in the main - album Die Slow Live Old. Its about how no job seems to fit.. I was only supposed to be a footballer! Die Slow Live Old is the opposite of live fast die young if you didn't spot it! What can I say I was a late starter, thats not to say I won't be a pensioner!
