Self Sufficient Blues Lyrics

Oh it's been a year slaving with a shovel and pick Cutting my own bean-poles and pea-sticks Got blisters from mowing and bad back from hoeing That old cock just ruins my sleep


I got the SS Blues: supermarket looks just fine I got the SS Blues: Good Life don't mean a good time

The broad beans got aphids, the birds got the peas and while thinning out carrots a bee stung my knee Took six weeks recovering and now I'm discovering the sprouts have got crop-root disease [The Good Life was a long-running BBC TV comedy series starring Felicity Kendall, Penelope Keith, Richard Briers and Paul Eddington, about the problems of an amateur self-sufficient lifestyle]




I got the SS Blues: supermarket looks just fine I got the SS Blues: Good Life don't mean a good time

Yeah now here's some advice to those that think That after a while they'll get used to the stink Of farmyard manure and chicken muck Let me tell you brother you're going to need some luck

The goose got so fat wouldn't fit in the pot The duck's got eaten by God knows what The hen ain't been laying, the pig-pen ain't paying I think that's just about my lot

I got the SS Blues: supermarket looks just fine I got the SS Blues: Good Life don't mean a good time

Oh, think I'll move away from here How about moving up to London? No window-boxes!
