The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking    30th April 1984

4:37 AM (Arabs with Knives and West German Skies)    (Waters)

There were Arabs with Knives
At the foot of the bed
Right at the foot of the bed.

Oh my God how did they get in here?

I thought we were safe home in England.

She said "Come on now kid, it was wrong what you did.
You've got to admit it was wrong.
You've got to admit it was wrong".

Oh God....Jesus

Sleep Sleep
I know that I'm only dreaming.
Leave her alone..get out..out..get out of my house
Through closed eyes
I see West German skies on the ceiling.
And I want to get back,
To the girl with the rucksack.
To feel her flaxen hair.
I want to be there.

See the sun going down,
Behind the Krupps steelworks,
On the outskirts of some German town.

Guten Abend meiner Damen und Herren Ha Ha Ha Ha
Willkommen in Konnigsburg Ha Ha Ha Ha
Wollen zie danzen mit mir oder drinken Bier Ha Ha Ha Ha.

"Thank you but......"

This young lady and I,
Will just finish this bottle of wine.

It was kind of you...but
I think we'll just say goodnight.

"Leave us alone".


"Leave us alone".

"Could I have the key to one four three please?"

"There you are".

"Thank you, goodnight".

"Hello yes I'd like to order breakfast please
I'd like coffee for two, and toast with marmalade".
