I know nothing, don't know much
I think my education's gone out to lunch
I can't remember, I cannot think
What is the difference between Iron and Zinc

I can listen, I can speak
But my conversational skills are gobblety-geek
I know Harold in 1066
Got shot in the eye with a long pointy stick

Revolutions and World War Two is it true what they say
That Charles de Gaulle was a hero and Churchill's a Nero
I threw that away

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off
I can lounge about in my house 'cause lounging about is ...good

I know all I need to know
Why talk Swahili if it's where i won't go
Latin is clever and sexy is French
Sprechen sie Deutsche would hardly make sense

Inquisitions and missionaries seem fairly bizarre
Do I follow commandments from Moses or petals off roses
I am the Czar

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off
I can lounge about in my house 'cause lounging about is...good

Revolutions and World War Two is it true what they say
That Charles de Gaulle was a hero and Churchill's a Nero
I threw that away

I get up when I like
Wear anything I like
Don't keep up with the cool
I make up my own rules
Don't have to eat my greens
Or keep my bedroom extra tidy
'Cause nobody is around to tell me off

    General CommentI love this song sooooooooo much!! My cousin Ruth is the keys player in this band. Does anyone else think that this song sounds a bit Talking Heads-ish? It's just about the freedoms that a person feels post-adolescence but pre-maturity!
