Life In A Day

There’s a girl on the door and she’s flaunting her all
At the shy passers by who’ll pay all she affords
It was only supposed to be a short stint in the industry
Now she does a rock round the clock for the dough she affords
It’s taking her mind off the hoards
And it’s breaking her heart

Jo’s just gone and blown her life in a day

She’s stopped writing letters to mummy and her purse is so light
It’s that tight, she can’t buy the stamps
She’s through with freebasing and now she’s just chasing
And chasing, the big city ain’t what it seems any more
She’s high but she don’t know what for
And it’s breaking my heart

Jo’s just gone and blown her life in a day

She’s scratching around like a rat
Yeah, she’s out of her head
She just can’t go on, so she’s gone and got a gun
And pumped herself full of lead

Jo’s just gone and blown her life in a day
