PAPER JAKE
(J Christie)

He's somebody you always see but don't appreciate
He pays a weekly contribution to the Welfare State
His life is full of problems but they never make him late
And every body knows you get no change from Paper Jake

They call him Paper Jake, his name is Paper Jake .. they call him Paper Jake ... Paper Jake, Paper Jake

Standing on the corner selling papers in the rain
One foot on the pavement and the other in the drain
The only time he smiles is when somebody calls his name
When someone comes along to buy a paper from our Jake

They call him Paper Jake, his name is Paper Jake .. they call him Paper Jake ... Paper Jake, Paper Jake

He’s no big time operator, everybody knows
He knows all the latest gossip and the cricket scores
Papers are his speciality you will agree
Take a walk down Fleet Street anytime and you will see

He sees himself as somebody who's everybody's mate
He doesn't have a social life he never stays out late
He doesn't want to see the world or learn to meditate
And so he lets his whole life rest upon the winds of fate

They call him Paper Jake, his name is Paper Jake .. they call him Paper Jake ... Paper Jake, Paper Jake
