Kinks – Did You See His Name? lyrics

Did you see his name in the local paper
Stole a tin of beans from a cut-priced grocery store?
The judge said, "He must pay"
So, he put him on probation and the paper gave his name
Did you see his name in the criminal section
And the center page gave his name and his address
They stopped him doing it again
So, they put him to dishonour and put the man to shame
He lost his little job
His employer was absolved of blame
His world just crumbled down
Incidentally, did you see his name in the obiturary column
Letters edged in black
Life was much too hard to live
So, he brought it to an end
In his gas-filled maisonette
Because he couldn't stand the strain
La la la la la
Life was much too hard to live
So, he brought it to an end
In his gas-filled maisonette
Because he couldn't stand the strain
Did you see his name?
Did you see his name?
Did you see his name?
