Toy Dolls – Lester Fiddled The Tax Man lyrics

Under Under Starters Under Starters orders & there off Tallyho!
4-1 3-1 2-1 The bettin's on, lester nicks off to rio
He got more, got more than he bargained for, Lester's accountant was a daft clot
He's upset, upset, that's what you get, he made a mockery of Ascot Ascot Ascot

Lester, Lester, a fiddliddliddling jester
Lester's been banged up with all the other cccccrooks
Lester, Lester, tried to trick the tax inspector
Coz lester conned the tax & fiddled his books.

He's a nutcase, nutcase, crackpot nutcase, he put his job in jeopardy
Now he won't be, won't be, won't be, won't be racing again at aintree
He'll get away, get away, get away, get away, he must o' been livin' in dreamland
Now he's never on, never on, never on, never on...
World of Sport or Grandstand Grandstand Grandstand.
[Guitar Bit]

He laughs, he laughs, he sniggers & laughs, when he thinks of the money he earns
But he got knicked, got nicked, got nicked, when he sent his tax returns
Grinning, grinning, always winning, he never thought he would be poor
Now he's locked up, locked up, locked up, locked up, Doing time in...
Dartmoor, Dartmoor, Dartmoor.
