Ginger John – Nowt

From New Youth, number 4, 1984.

You’re the engaged tone in my mind
The blank cassette that won’t rewind
The high pitched whine on the telly at night
A census form in a derelict house
A holiday for two in the Afghan hills
A sales rep for Argentinian beef
A union shop steward in Polish steel
A National Front candidate in Notting Hill
A Young Conservative outta work
A pain in the place where it really hurts
You’re all of these, you’re not worth nowt!
A transistor radio without a battery
A video tape without a player
A motor car without an engine
A prostitute without a clinic
A bank account with nothing in it
The S.D.P. dream of running the country
You’re all of these, you’re not worth nowt!
You’re just a square wheel on the road of life
An abcess in the mouth of mankind
A late night bus that’s broken down
A telephone box that’s been vandalised
You’re all of these, you’re not worth nowt!
