“Nobody Home” by Pink Floyd off the soundtrack to the movie “THE WALL”

I’ve got a little black book with my poems in
got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in
when I’m a good dog they sometimes throw me a bone in
I’ve got elastic bands keeping my shoes on
got those swollen hand blues
got thirteen channels of sh*t on the TV to choose from
I got electric light and I got second sight
F Fm C E7 Am D7
got amazing powers of observation
and that is how I know
Am C6 C D
when I try to get thru on the telephone to you

There’ll be nobody home.
I’ve got the obligatory Hendrix perm
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt
I’ve got nicotine stains on my fingers
I’ve got a silver spoon on a chain
Got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains
I’ve got wide staring eyes
& I’ve got a strong urge to fly
But I’ve got nowhere to fly to (fly to fly to fly to fly to)
Ooooh babe, why not pick up the phone?
There’s still nobody home.
I’ve got a pair of Gohill’s boots
But I got fading roots.
