​Friend Of The People

This song is by The Saints and appears on the album Prodigal Son (1988).

I was talking to a friend of the people
Was kissing babies like a diplomat
Was on remand and on my best behaviour
Shaking hands and getting in on the act...

The business people were getting drunker than usual
The conversation slipped below the skull
Exchanging glances with a reporter from Teen Hits
I'm an apprentice whore on my way to Babylon
I was a bit like you
You showed me what to do
I was introduced to the sound of confusion
Got propositioned by a passing nun
I was indisposed and unavailable for comment
I'm on the borderline
With nowhere to go
I was a bit like you
You showed me what to do
