WHAT A CRAZY WORLD WE'RE LIVING IN (Alan Klein) Joe Brown & The Bruvvers - 1962 The Liverpool Five - 1966 Dad's gone down the dogtrack, Mother's playin' bingo Grandad's swearin' at the telly, tryin' to make the thing go No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Now, the old man never talks to me, and when he does, it's moan Wash your face, it looks a disgrace, oh, what an 'appy 'ome He says I'm irresponsible, not like when he was young Then he puts on his cap and coat to watch the greyhounds run Oh, Dad's gone down the dogtrack, Mother's playin' bingo Grannie's boozin' in the parlour, hic, you oughta see the gin go No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Brown bread! Brown bread! Mother say's I look a yob, me trousis are too tight She says I ought to get a job and not stay out all night She doesn't like my haircut, she says me friends are lousy And then she says "It's gettin' late, can't miss me ousey-ousey" Oh, Dad's gone down the dogtrack, Mother's playin' bingo Sister's smoochin' on the sofa, you oughta hear their lingo * No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Yay! Law caught me out thievin', took me down the nick The sergeant made out his report, and he layed it on real thick He said "I'll get your parents", I answered with a grin "Save yourself the trouble, mate, you'll never find 'em in" 'Cause Dad's gone down the dogtrack, Mother's playin' bingo Me brothers are all layabouts, all alike by jingo No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Yeah, what a crazy world we're livin' in What a crazy world we're livin' Three, four, knock at the door What a crazy world we're livin' in * possible alt. line: "..you oughta hear the springs go." (Transcribed from the Joe Brown recording by Mel Priddle - July 2006) **************************** As recorded by The Liverpool Five: Brown bread! Brown bread! Dad's gone dahn the dogtrack, Muvver's playin' bingo Bruvvers are all layabouts, what a rub, by jingo No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Oh, no one likes me 'aircut, Muvver says I'm lazy She says I ought to get a job, she must fink I'm crazy No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Oh, Granma plays the 'orses, Grandad's always moanin' Sister's home from school at four and then she starts her phonin' No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Old socks! Brown bread! Brown bread! Mum don't like me clothin', she says I dress so chronic And she turns 'round and pours 'erself a double gin and tonic No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in Nah, Dad's 'ome from the dogtrack, Muvver's 'ome from bingo Granma's fiddlin' with the telly, tryin' to make the fing go No one seems to notice me, isn't it a sin What a crazy world we're livin' in What a crazy world we're livin' Clap your hands, swing your hips Here comes Muvver with the fish an' chips What a crazy world we're livin' in What a crazy world we're livin' North and south, east and west A good cup o' tea is still the best What a crazy world we're livin' in Alright! (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2006) ****************************
