Dignity (version 1) Songtext

There′s a man I meet
Walks up our street
He's a worker for the council
Has been twenty years
And he takes no lip off nobody
And litter off the gutter
And puts it in a bag
And never thinks to mutter
And he packs his lunch in a Sunblest bag
The children call him bogey
He never lets on
But I know ′cause he once told me
He let me know a secret about the money in his kitty
He's gonna buy a dinghy
Gonna call her Dignity


And I'll sail her up the west coast
Through villages and towns
I′ll be on my holidays
They′ll be doing the rounds
They'll ask me how I got her
I′ll say, "I saved my money"
They'll say "isn′t she pretty, that ship called Dignity"

And I'm telling this story
In a faraway scene
Sipping down raki
And reading Maynard Keynes
And I′m thinking about home
And all that that means
And a place in the winter
For Dignity

And I'll sail her up the west coast
Through villages and towns
I'll be on my holidays
They′ll be doing the rounds
They′ll ask me how I got her
I'll say, "I saved my money"
They′ll say "isn't she pretty, that ship called Dignity"


I′ll set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up
Yeah, set it up again,
Set it up again, set it up again, set it up again
Set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up, set it up
Yeah, set it up again,
Set it up again, set it up again, set it up again

And I'm thinking about home
And I′m thinking about faith
And I'm thinking about work
And I'm thinking how good it would be
To be here some day
On a ship called dignity
A ship called dignity
That ship
