Century Girl

Fred Smith


I?m gonna have to introduce myself

I?ve got no record company produced myself oh, oh
I?ve been the drummer and I played the bass

Now I?m up the front with my pretty little face oh, oh
Kept it together through the leaner years
I sang Stormy Weather through the meaner years oh, oh
I?ve been the sucker of the century
Now I?m the fucker I was meant to be oh, oh
Verse 2
Born at the turn of the century
I landed on the beaches of Gallipoli oh, oh
I stood tall while Wall Street crashed
But I never ever had a lot of cash oh, oh
Fought in the trenches of the second war
I landed with MacArthur at Corregidor oh, oh
My arse got burned when Saigon fell
Re-education was another kind of hell oh, oh
Century girl I?m checking out
Is there much left for us to talk about?
I?ll call back in from planet Earth
The self same child I was upon my birth
Verse 3
And I?ve been a sailor of the seven seas
I was a hippy in the seventies oh, oh
I shot the sheriff and I fought the law
I?ve been the hooker to the whore you know oh, oh
And I?ve been a catholic and I been Zen

I?ve been the Buddhist since Christ knows when oh, oh
I?ve been to Babylon, I?ve been to Rome
Been travelling but now I?m home oh, oh

Century girl I?m checking out
Is there much left for us to talk about?
I?ll call back in from planet Earth
The self same child I was upon my birth


I?ve seen a bucket load of shit go down
I?ve been the president, I?ve been the clown oh, oh
I?ve seen a bucket of futility
Don?t need to demonstrate virility oh, oh
Still I ain?t bitter and I ain?t green
And I?m feeling fitter than I?ve ever been oh, oh
I?ve been the sucker of the century
Now I?m the fucker I was meant to be oh, oh
