Lets listen to the Duckworth Lewis Method

Third Man

Lyrics

Before the captain calls to me I know where he’ll want me to be
I’ve dropped the ball too many times and out of sight is out of mind
To lessen my depression I spend session after session
In the decadent digression of a dream

Hey hey, whiling away the best part of the day down at third man
Hey hey, watching the play as I daydream away down at third man

I think I’ll spend a little time planning crimes like Harry Lime
I’ll fantasise my enemies’ demise ‘til tea arrives
I could make a killing like a villain in the film
Selling Fleming’s penicillin to Vienna

Hey hey, whiling away the best part of the day down at third man
Hey hey, watching the play as I daydream away down at third man

“In the shadow of a doorway she is standing like a lost child
An old woman is screaming, the crowd’s becoming hostile
My thoughts have been diluted like a 2/6 novella
Am I in a field in England or in the dark streets of Vienna?"


Hey hey, whiling away the best part of the day down at third man
Hey hey, watching the play as I daydream away down at third man
Hey hey, whiling away the best part of the day down at third man
Hey hey, watching the play as I daydream away down at third man
