From the album EP Four

It started aged eleven stealing sweets and books
a grammar school boy turned teenage crook
a bright young lad from a good neighbourhood
now Flossie's in Joachim's, he's up to no good

too fast to live
Young enough to die

with their drainpipe trousers and winklepicker shoes
a drunken plan to take somebody's livelihood
they hid on the toe path that hot summer's night
wrong time wrong place and they took his life
it was the time, the place and they took his life

I hear the warden talking outside the door
A seven foot drop to settle the score
the radio is playing a number one from the king
It's now or never as he starts to sing
