I closed my front door today I won't be opening it up for a while,
I left the key with friends I said "make yourself at home and live in style",
All I had was a set of clothes that would have to last for quite a long time,
I'm leaving now all the brass and silver can collect some grime.

My money in the bank I'll give most away to friends and servants who will lose their pay,
They can be rich for a short time, realise some ambitions and start to climb,
I''ll be glad to say goodbye to status people who are just a lie,
I left them behind when I walked out the door, I'll never see them anymore.
