# Here is a tune I've been writing

# It's been so long in the making

# I hope it's worth all the waiting

# Not expected all for free

# Everything has an ending

# Everything has its day

# There's no use in pretending

# Everything has a price to pay

# You just ask me

# What I'm feeling

# Should I tell you?

# Well, nothing is for free

# Can't you see, can't you see?

# Everything has a price to pay

# Everything that I know is

# Hanging on my melody

# Everything has an ending

# Everyone has their price to pay

# You just ask me

# What I'm feeling

# Should I tell you?

# Well, nothing is for free

# Can't you see, can't you see?

# Everything has a price to pay... #

All right, Dave?

Is this Vince gonna be any aggravation?

Some geezer banged into him

with a trolley in a supermarket.

Vince had his ear off with a Stanley

knife. -We'll take that as a yes, then.

Number 37, second floor.

Oi! It's Stan! Stan!

# Here is a tune I've been writing

# It's been so long in the making

# I hope it's worth all the waiting

# Everything has a price to pay #

In the bathroom.

Where's the money, Vince?

I'll belt you. Where's the money?

- Where's the money?

- In the fridge!

Is this it?

Where's the rest of the money?

- Why? Want to make a complaint?

No. It's just the Old Bill don't usually

of the new graduate intake, sunshine.

Don't touch me, man!

I said you're a f***ing thief!

- You're a thief!

Hey, guys. Come on.

Help the lady with her bags.

Put them in the kitchen.

- All right, Ray?

Hello, boys.

Now, inside. Now!

- Calm down. Keep the noise down.

- Robbie, Lionel, kitchen.

- I'm going home.

- See you. Now!

- You know about the picket tomorrow?

- Tomorrow?

Strength in numbers.

This number's having a day off. I was

looking forward to lying in bed all day.

- When are they closing you down?

- Two weeks.

Can you get that down?

Any chance of you getting away tonight?

I can't. It's only me and Pearse on.

Hello? Yeah, hi.

- Have you contacted the police?

- I'd better go.

Wait. Have you tried Shriver?

It's her mother's name.

I'll hold. Come with me

to the protest tomorrow.

- That's not me.

- It was once.

Some of us move on.

We all move on.

It's what we move on to that counts.

Still here. It was Shriver.

What station are they holding her?

See you tomorrow night.

I think about you all the time.

Do you want me to come now? Sure?

You've got the solicitor's number?

OK. Bye.

- And where are you going?

- I was gonna go.

- I'm expecting sex.

- Oh, really?

Leave me something!

Leave me something!

Leave me something!

Here we are.

It's a lovely house. We could get

somewhere like that, couldn't we, Ray?

- All right?

- Yeah.

You're driving. It's all right, it's clean.

Hello, Dave.

Where you been? I've been up all night.

Your mother's going potty. Use your head!

- Sarah was in good hands.

- Shut up! Shut up!

Now see your mother. Come here.

Don't have no rows with your

mother, babe. Just apologise.

Have a wicked day anyway, Dave.

Hope you and your brethren
