05 CLEAN SHEETS

The end of the day, the sky is red
A chambermaid is making my bed
Been roaming all day long through mean streets
But tonight I’ll sleep between clean sheets

In need of a rest I close my eyes
The queen of the night is getting ready to rise
Let the sheep in the fields of green bleat
The shepherd dreams a dream of clean sheets

A drizzly rain begins to fall
I flick the switch and spy two roaches on the wall
What difference does it make? This ain’t no Queen’s suite
But a room with a bed and clean sheets

Stairways may be holey
Walls may be run-down
Your hotel may even be
The cheapest place in town
Your bedstead may be sloping
Some guests may be obscene
Just don’t care as long as you hear
The washing machines

I’m hungry like hell, my budget is low
The rain drizzles yellow, it shows me where to go
Like Buddha at the door I ain’t keen on meat
And the Chinese lay their tables with clean sheets

Later in a bar I meet a girl
We have a couple of drinks and then I speak to her:
“You say you’ve got a partner... Well, I can be discreet
If you happen to fancy clean sheets“

Make sure you always find a place to stay
The air gets rougher at the end of the day
Dirty world outside, this is my retreat
I lay my head on clean sheets
