Little Joe

This song is by The Go-Betweens and appears on the 2004 reissue of the album Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express (1986).

Everyone knows everybody else
Let's skip introductions
Talk on little Joe
His mother left for me to mind
A 100 a week
A lovely guy of 26
Loves only the lonely
Little Joe
Oh no here he comes
Laughing with an old joke
Don't you cry
Never do a days work
Nothing of value will ever get hurt
Joes no trouble he ran for mayor
The mafia car bombed my car
I said you're not running for mayor
Gave up wishing
Took up hoping
Hoping Joe will settle down
Shoe store
A movie house
Something like
Something like a French comedy
He's patronised by gentle souls
Their best intensions are their own
Don't you cry
Never do a days work
Nothing of value will ever get hurt
I've always been a man of the track
Took Joe down to the track
So here we sit
Joe and I
Joe and I
Little Joe
Don't you cry
Never do a days work
Nothing of value will ever get hurt
The whole world
Let's get our balance in the mid-night air
