about

Our name in the paper - Arthur has had no advantages - he was taken into care after his mum was caught soliciting. Arthur is now a young man in his early 20's who has grown up the hard way, he has never known his father.. He is an affable, intelligent feller, looking to make his way in life, but is faced by the obstacle of low wages, unaffordable exploitative housing, & no opportunity, other than that as a faceless factotum.

lyrics

OUR NAME IN THE PAPER

Intro: Dmaj7>Cmaj7

1:
Em F#m
Don't ask me who my father was
I never knew his name
don't judge me for what my mother does
And shout she's on the game

G Gm
nights alone in a freezing terrace
D F#m
wait for my mum to get home
Em A
she goes straight upstairs
Dmaj7>Cmaj7
I'm left alone

2:
front page of the paper says
my mum's been done again
local people judge me just the same
as if I were to blame

It's not as if we have anyone
and it's a crying shame
i'm cold I shiver and I'm scared
every day's the same

MID 8 F>G F>Bb>A7
People look as if were me
& say that I'm no good
or amount to anything
as if I thought I could

3: SOLO to bridge

People living in glass houses
are still chucking stones
i've got no one, I'm so alone

3:
I go to school with holes in my shoes
as if I had a choice. No one there I can talk to
or lend a friendly voice
I can't get used to bloody noses
I can't stand & fight
with no one home for me at night
