Murray Head – Rubbernecker lyrics

He is a rubbernecker
A human double-decker
Another trouble-checker

Hanging around the scene of the crime
He's got nothing to say tho' he'll get in the way
Cos that's how he likes to spend his time

He is a rubbernecker
A watch in any weather
He gets sadistic pleasure
Knowing he's O.K., and free of blame
He saw it all happen, but he don't know why
He's glad he was there all the same.

Oh god it's hard to see ourselves when we're to blame
For watching someone else do what we cannot do
For shame, for fear or pride, as long as we can hide.

He is a rubbernecker
A human double-decker
Another trouble-checker

The ever silent witness on the side
He likes to stand and stare and sniff the atmosphere
Don't ask him for support he's a watchman not a guide.
