Where were you when you stole my pride
Did you ever get the feeling that someone died
Hide away in your ivory tower
And cover me in your golden shower
Did I make you laugh when I played the clown
And was I the dog that bit you when you put it down
Break it nicely break it slow
Break it so I've got no place to go

Ego a go go now you've gone solo
Living on a memory
Where've you been lately
And do you still hate me
Could you offer an apology

Aaah turn away
Aaah fade to grey

Spoken; And here's another thing

Where were you when the party ended
Were you stitching up the wounds that you thought I need mending
Wonderlands have crashed to the ground
The circus is gone all that's left is the clowns
Did I break your heart when I stole your thunder
Was there woodworm in the table your feet are under
Break it nicely break it slow
Break it so I've got no place to go

Ego a go go now you've gone solo
Living on a memory
Now you've gone stately
And yes you do hate me
Could you offer an apology

Aaah turn away
Aaah fade to grey
Aaah I hope you've strayed
Aaah
And got laid

Ego a go go
Ego a go go go
Oh yeah

    General CommentThis one is about when Robbie left Take That. The other band members wanted him out and he turned out to be the dog that bit them when they'd put him down by becoming so successful!

    General CommentYes, it's about Gary Barlow, apparently he was the one that used to criticize him the most. Funny how things turned out, right?. But I'm pleased that he was able to release his feelings from the beggining (this song is from his first album) and not necessarily wait until he became a superstar. Some of the diss lines here are really smart, and perfect if you are mad at someone who used to befriend you.
