Written in September 2009.

Recorded in Hillingdon in October 2009.


Once I thought you were the bollocks;
Saw the sun shining right from your arse.
There was just nothing that you couldn't do,
You were the best of the bunch.
Then you showed me your true colours...
I sacked you off, baby, in a flash.
You say I'm wrong not to give you a chance,
But, now, I think you'll find...

I miss you like a stone in my shoe,
P'raps even two,
Thorn in my side,
Stye in my eye,
Like a big gaping hole in my abdomen
(One that just shouldn't be there),
Wasp in my drink,
Shit in the sink,
Decapitation, you see the link?
Really and true, my life is just great without you.

But you say, every day,
That you are quite ok.

Once this would've made a difference,
I'd take on board your every word,
But now I've seen what a wanker you are -
Darling, you're wasting your time.
It's best that you head to the exit,
Make your excuses and piss right off.
Most definitely your number is up.
Get the hell out of my face.

I miss you like a hole in the head,
Mouldy old bread,
Big rabid dog,
Maggoty frog,
Like impaling myself on a metal pole
(Without taking painkillers first),
Arsenic and mace,
Slap in the face,
Like finding my intestines are all over the place.
Really and true, my life is just great without you.

I think it's clear, while you're still here,
That you should disappear.

My patience it wanes, just look at me veins.
You really best be leaving or you'll feel more than pains.
Totally true, my life is just great without you,
Boo hoo.
Really and true, my life is just great without you.
