Stagger Lee makes his pitch.




he don’t walk so good

lurching from side to side in the neighborhood

his speech is a bit of a slur

to go with his glassy eyed stare

he flogs reserve cigarettes

to keep body and soul together

but when he talks

he talks sense

and not the usual alkies nonsense

so I have named him

after an old blues song you see

so have a look

at our very own

stagger lee
