They said it’s over When Stephen left high school Too long spent messing Staying away and playing the fool They said it’s crazy Drumming in a band No good being hopeful Playing all those one night stands But now he’s the one Yeah he’s the one Having the fun Being the one Playing in the sun Yeah he’s the one Having the fun Being the one Back home for now And everyone’s his friend They all remember Saying he’d make it in the end No doubt about it He’s really riding high New boots and panties Anything he wants to try And now he’s the one…… Now everything is alright Now everything is wonderful Now everything is altogether bright Now he’s the one……

Well I’ve been thinking Thinkin that I’d better get better Better at bein a bit better Whenever, She needs me And I’ve been thinking Thinking bout writing her a letter Writing her a letter just to let her Know forever that I care Thinkin bout all the times I wasn’t there Thinkin bout all the times I didn’t care Thinkin bout all the times I was unfair Times I vanished in thin air Disappeared to God knows where And I’ve been thinking Thinking bout maybe just quittin Quitin my lying and drinkin And thinking about her Thinkin bout all the times I wasn’t there Thinkin bout all the times I didn’t care Thinkin bout all the times I was unfair Times I vanished in thin air Disappeared to God knows where Well I’ve been thinking Thinking bout her and maybe whether whether we’ll just talk about the weather or whether she’ll keep me And maybe whether I’ll be better than I’ve been Oh yeah whether I’ll be better when she needs me

Cold Night, out alone Head down, on her way from home Street light, waiting there On his bike, a Norton bathed in Chrome Every evening they meet by that light Walking in the park on Sundays Secret rendevous out on his bike Still she never really knew his name Cold Night, he's not there Street light, standing tall and bare Whisper, in her ear Don't look back, I'll always be here Suddenly a newspaper blows by Boy killed on a Triumph Norton Seemed there was a street light caught his eye It said they didn't really know his name She thought she heard his whisper in the dark Standing by that lonely streetlight Thought she saw his shadow in the park Still she never really knew his name

Wardour Street on Monday Night He's walking quick and feeling alright He's buzzing and hopes he might Get lucky with you The Marquee' s hotter than hell Its rammed and just to speak you must yell He doesn't want to break the spell And so acts cool Seventy Seven Teenage Heaven Seventy Seven He’s there with You Seventy Seven Better than Ever Seventy Seven Its all he wants to do Later and the Speakeasy's full Everybody's looking real cool He's hoping he won't be a fool So he’ll get lucky with you Lemmy's on the fruit machine Speeding on more than caffeine The boy’s trying to blend in the scene and impress you too Seventy Seven…… Its 3 am the lights show up the grime Its time to head out on the street She turns to him his heart beats overtime She says will you come back with me? Seventy Seven…..

So we all came running home again At the end of 4 long days Yeah we all came running home again Bruised and battered from the fray And we all had things to think about As we went our separate ways Regrets and schemes to think about And nothing said to save the day now we're all going nowhere very slowly Slowly getting there And We're all left thinking how unholy a mess without a prayer So we all came running home again To go our separate ways All left losers in the game with those who loved and gave us praise Nothing ever lasts for ever Nothing really comes for free And when you see what caused your anger You'll realise it wasn't me So we all fall down Yeah we all fall down all fall down Little boys all lost at sea Nothing ever lasts for ever Nothing really comes for free It's only when it's really over You realise it's not to be So we all fall down Yeah we all fall down All Fall Down

Wide awake on a brand new morning Heaven sent without a warning She's there Hard Stare All at once my legs are jelly Dizzy head and dehli belly Hold tight stay upright But she's got me down on my knees again Lost in the rush for her hand I was Shot in the back Everyone wants her Shot in the back They'll all kill for her Shot in the back Got to be near her Caught in the flak Can't live without her Shot in the back Things are getting scary Shot in the Back Got to be wary Shot in the back Say a hail Mary Caught in the flak Nothing can help me Long blond hair, perfumed aroma Just one look I'm in a coma Heart stop Makes my Knees drop With a word she can command me Make me smile or reprimand me Do wap makes my eyes pop And she's got me down on my knees again Giving her all that I can But Iwas Shot in the back…. And she's got me down on my knees again Lost in the rush for her hand And I was Shot in the back….

Always there when you need someone to hold you Always there when you need someone to care Always there when you need someone who knows you Always there when you’re feeling small and scared I said ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh Aren’t Women Wonderfull Always there when you need somebody Smiling eyes who’s kind and cuddly Someone who can make the heavy light Always there when you need someone Soft and warm but bright and good fun Someone who can make it all alright I said ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh Aren’t Women Wonderfull Always there when you need someone to scold you Always there when you need telling off Always there when you need your own sweet angel angel Like a girl about who you’d write this song I said ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh Aren’t Women Wonderfull Always there when you’re in trouble Need some help she’ll give you double Always there to help and understand Quite prepared to burst your bubble But haul you out from all the rubble When your world feels like its tumbling down I said ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh Aren’t Women Wonderfull I said ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh Aren’t Women Wonderfull

It was another age Beatles on TV Football in the street All my friends and me We Played there all day long We were all in clover Nothing could go wrong Time just rolling on Well a small town's cool Till you reach 16 Till the sirens call From a brighter scene So I packed my bags and I moved to London For a bright new dawn Time just rolling on Well I found a job In a factory Where I made some friends Played guitar like me and we formed a band We were all in clover Nothing could go wrong Time just rolling on But life moves on New things become important New Horizons call To spur you on Busy making plans for the future While time keeps rolling on So I'm sitting here looking back on life my daughter's all grown up Still got a lovely wife And Everything’s just fine Everything’s in Clover When all is said and done Time's just rolling on When all is said and done Time's just rolling on

Don’t know how I’m gonna tell my wife Facebook’s full of girls trying to get in my life They’re writing on my wall saying I’m the one I think I’m gonna have to go on the run Yeah They’re dreaming about me Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah They’re dreaming about me Things are really going from bad to worse There’s a new group out there who are posting me verse Everyday there’s some giving me a poke Only trouble is that they’re all blokes

Thought I had a girl as sweet as pie Lips like honey Apple of my eye Thought I had a girl to be proud of who’d tell those other guys where to get off April Fool Thought I had the girl of my dreams Long legged tutti frutti Peaches & cream Thought I had a girl who was so sweet Rub my tummy Bring me things to eat Never thought I'd be the one to end up moaning like John Plain Don't know how but I'm sounding just the same Writing songs about the girl who's gone off with the other guy Getting drunk in the pub and wondering why Thought I had a girl who was devine Cheeks like Cherry blossom Kiss like Wine Thought I had a girl who was all mine Cook my dinner for me All of the time

Julie knows there’s more to life Than being a mother and a lovely wife But when she sees him playing on the floor She knows she doesn’t want any more She loves her baby cos he’s always there Little dimples and soft brown hair Hugs and kisses him all day long She’s in a dream every day Sammy knows when he grows tall He’ll be a big man in a big man’s world He’ll be a pilot in an aero plane Or knock down buildings with a ball and chain He loves his mummy cos she’s always there Warm and lovely and soft brown hair Hugs and kisses her all day long He’s in a dream every day Yeah they They’ve got it all They’ve got it all Couldn’t want any more Yeah they They’ve got it all They’ve got it all Got it all that’s for sure Now that Sammy’s grown big and tall sixteen and so he knows it all tells his parents what they should do But they don’t listen to a word, its true He loves his mother but she’s always there Always bugging him about his hair Always on at him the whole day through He’s got to get far away Oh they (Julie knows there’s more to life) They’ve got it all (Than being a mother and a lovely wife) They’ve got it all (she knows it) Couldn’t want any more Yeah they (Sammy knows when he grows tall) They’ve got it all (He’ll be a big man in a big man’s world) They’ve got it all (He knows it) Got it all that’s for sure
