about

A whimsical song about a make believe world where a powerful man called Rupert has his pet who he sends out in the world to create misery and anguish and general evil. Sure, the PET needs a warm place to shit but what will happen when it dies? Who will clean it's grave?

lyrics

Rupert's Pet's Grave
Who's gonna shine it?
After they sweep away the trash and clean the paint?

Rod Stewart in the 22nd century, tells a story of his days as a grave shiner. He was kept hoppin', cleanin' the screen of whatsisname- Rupert's Pet's Grave

Will there be guards?
Will they be proper, white?
How the man was hated! Stirred the pot so tight.
Who's gonna clean Rupert's Pet's Grave?

He wasn't a "people person", oh how he hated people!
Hate won't keep you alive
It''ll drench your mind - and the lousy words you traded in!

Everybody dies! It's not just a story!
Everybody's got to work - I understand!
Who's gonna clean Rupert's Pet's Grave?

And before that? At the grisly end?
who's gonna wipe?
What poor minimum wage... is gonna clean his privates?
Make him respectable?

Cos when the powers gone to someone else and the crowd drifts off with the force .
And he lays in his cot in a wilderness of unrequited hate...

Everybody dies! It's not just a story!
Everybody's got to work - I understand!
Who's gonna clean Rupert's Pet's Grave?
