about

Our name in the paper - Arthur was taken into care after his mum was caught soliciting; the neighbours looked down on little Arthur; there was not a friendly face to be seen.

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
