Anybody have the lyrics to Matt McGinn's "Honesty Is Out of the Fashion"? It's not on his website, and hadn't been posted here.
Seems to be related to Rigs of the Time. I'm having trouble understanding it.

This seems to be it, Joe:

HONESTY IS OUT OF THE FASHION
(Matt McGinn)

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

The publican pays 11 pences a pint for beer from the brewery men
Then he pour me pint on the counter, charges me 2 and 10

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

While the publican is serving me he says "How you like my shop?"
He pour my pint, I look and see an inch of froth on top

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

The grocer sell some ham to me, he charge 10 shilling a pound
Then he put his thumb on the scale and press the damn thing down

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

To separate Dick Turpin from the shopkeepers is a task
I think the difference, Dick Turpin wore a mask

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

St. Dennis had his head cut off, he didn't fancy that
He took in his hands and walked two miles without his hat

Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today
Honesty is out of the fashion, out of fashion today

From HERE.

Listening to McGinn on Rhapsody right now and I am hearing a verse which is missing from the above and a missing word or two in the other verses. If no one else comes in with corrections, I'll try to get them down tomorrow.

Thing about Rigs Of The Time is that it lends itself ideally to constant updating.
Which would account for the procession of floorsingers who make comments about the rising price of beer in whichever establishment they are performing.
