Nut in the Hut, Enda Reilly 2007



I am the nut in hut
I’ve lived here for all time
Stuck in a bit of a rut
Drinking sandy wine for dinner

There’s a man in a hut
He’s a bit of a nut
Spends days listening
And his nights writing

He drinks beer for breakfast
Porridge for his supper
He beats a drum
At four a.m.

I am the nut in hut
I’ve lived here for all time
Stuck in a bit of a rut
Drinking sandy wine for dinner

Yes the man in the hut
Wears no shoe on his foot
When he walks on jagged stones
By the desert lake of bones

Oh he scuttles and he scurries
And he bottles up his worries
And he falls to his knees
Knows not what he believes

I am the nut in hut
I’ve lived here for all time
Stuck in a bit of a rut
Drinking sandy wine

My name, my name
Was all in vain
I cast it aside
Now I’m the flowing tide

I drink beer for breakfast
Porridge for me supper
I beat a drum
At four a.m.

I am the nut in hut
I’ve lived here for all time
Stuck in a bit of a rut
Drinking sandy wine for dinner

I, I, I am the nut in the hut
I, I, I am the nut in the hut
I, I, I am the nut in the hut
(in the hut, in the hut) [REPEAT]
I am the nut in the hut
(in the hut, in the hut) [REPEAT]
Nut in the hut
(in the hut, in the hut) [REPEAT]
I am the nut in the hut
(in the hut, in the hut) [REPEAT]

I am the nut in hut
I’ve lived here for all time
Stuck in a bit of a rut
But tomorrow I’ll be fine
I promise, I promise
I promise, I promise
I promise
