​Down On His Luck

This song is by Man In The Wood and appears on the album Thumper (1990).

You say sit, I ain't no dog
You say who? I ain't no owl
But you say fly, I ain't no bird
You say I am the way,
I am the truth,
I am the word

And who do you think you're fooling?
You're not God, you're not Christ
You don't even go to church
What are you?

He's down on his luck

You say laugh, I ain't no hyena
You say growl, I ain't no lion
But you say jump, I ain't no frog
You say my father, thou art in Heaven
Hallowed by thy name
But I don't see you crucified
You're not holy, you don't feel
What are you?

Down, down on his luck
He's down, down on his luck
He's down, down on his luck

You think you are not human
You think you are uncivilised
But if I was to nail you to the cross
I bet you would bleed
How do you toast your bread?
I bet you would bleed
How do you toast it?
