The Cat Empire

The Cat Empire - 1001

rate me

Parking Inspector

- just made my list of one thousand

one thousand and one

but ah Parking Inspector

Went to my friends

when I found a fine beat

cos I like to play a rhythm

where the rhythm plays me

play it all day

on a balcony above the street

where old Franky and me we

shuffle with our feet

And old man Goergie

takes some sugar with his tea

when he's stirred by a melody

of hands moving easy

you see it reminds him

dreams by the sea

where the breeze blows

underneath that island tree

And we played til the playing

Gave us the munchies

then we played in the kitchen

made the easy gods happy

cos we left them a little chilli-special

and some chocolate we eat because it's sweet

when I leave I am smiling

at the things I haven't done

oh I haven't broke a sweat

and I haven't had to run

for the list of one-thousand

-and-one that does plague me

on some days

when the sun rays don't come

Parking Inspector

just made my list of one thousand

one thousand and one

but ah Parking Inspector

[won't let you wreck my fun]

When I get to my car

I am faced with a sight

that is strange and it's sad

and it's mad it's not right

there's one thousand and one

spaces free but I see

that he find me guilty

of the time over fee

Now I know why my mother

why my mother warned me

said ‘you might be lucky

but know nothing comes for free'

she is right - entirely

cos the ticket paid the song

that I sing to this beat

Parking inspector

just made my list of one thousand

one thousand and one

but ah parking inspector

won't let you wreck my fun

cos when I pay for my ticket

I won't curse and despise

no i'll run into the girl

with the slinky blue eyes

then my list of one thousand and one

will remain

I had plans to get it done

but now my plans they have changed

Parking Inspector

just made my list of one thousand

one thousand and one

but ah Parking Inspector

‘just listen to the bass and the funky drums'

Parking Inspector

just made my list of one thousand

grow a little more

but ah parking inspector

you won't believe what I saw

on the back of my ticket

with invisible type

was a map to the place

with one thousand delights

and a key that was one to that

spot by the sea where the breeze

blows underneath that island tree
