[electric out; acoustic as above, witb fill variations] 





People often change but when I look in your eyes


You can learn a lot from a life like mine


The secret to me, it ain't flown up a flag


I carry it behind this bleeding little badge, what says:





Bell Boy, I gotta get running now


Bell Boy, Keep your lip buttoned down


Bell Boy, Carry the bloody baggage out


Bell Boy, Always running at someone's heel,
