Pinhead Gunpowder – Glossary [from Carry The Banner] lyrics

Bunk on your ears: sleep on the floor without covering
Carry the Banner: walk the streets
Day olds: stale bakery goods
Fishing: stealing with a stick and hook
Frill: a girl
Front: respectable appearance
Glims: eyes; daylight
Glom: seize and eat
Just luck: successful stealing
Misery: coffee that has an unpleasant taste
Put on the low needle: talk softly
Skating on uppers: walking on shoes from which heels and soles are worn
Slave market: location of employment agencies, or the offices themselves
Stand: a place to stand and panhandle
Straight sob: a sad story
