I was high on a molatov of cocktails
I was low on a hundred things
I was wrong to put my money where my mouth was
I was right about the whales and the dolphins
Whales and dolphins whales and dolphins yeah
And I don’t mind preserving time at all

I was blue about the people in the power
I was green that’s my excuse
I was yellow when they said to fight the reds
’cos I knew I’d be beaten black and blue
Black and blue battered and bruised yeah

Hold the line just give it some time then call

Cor what I like and what I hate about perseverance
Ooh what I’d give and what I’d take for perseverance

I was round and about in the area
I was square in my suit and tie
I was lost in the bermuda triangle
It all went pear shaped twisted and twined
Twisted and twined twisted and twined yeah

And I don’t mind preserving time at all
Hold the line just give it some time then call

Cor what I like and what I hate about perseverance
Ooh what I’d give and what I’d take for perseverance

I was lost on the road to nowhere
I was a guest on a runaway train
I was happy ’cos I knew I was innocent
They were glad to let me take the blame
Taking the blame taking the blame taking the blame
It’s always the same ’cos

I what I like and what I hate about perseverance
Ooh what I’d give and what I’d take for perseverance
I haven’t time I haven’t space for perseverance
’cos I swap and change just when I like to keep up appearance
