Breathe down my neck, get it off your chest
Put your arm around a memory, or keep it at arms length
Hold your heart in your hand, or wear it on your sleeve
Put your shoulder to the wheel

Put your nose to the grindstone
Shoot yourself in the foot
And put it in your mouth

Give me a hand, lend me an ear
Gather some wool and pull it over my eyes
Smell a rat, taste defeat
Get a leg up, put your foot down, turn the other cheek

Play it by ear, then pay through the nose
Keep your eyes peeled, stick your neck out
Put your nose out of joint, then cut it off to spite your face

Do what Simon says and nobody gets hurt
I’d do what Simon says if I were you
Do what Simon says and no one’s the wiser
Do what Simon says and nobody gets hurt

Give me a hand, lend me an ear
Gather some wool and pull it over my eyes
Smell a rat, taste defeat
Get a leg up, put your foot down, turn the other cheek
And lose some face
