"This Boy" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Paul Robert Thompson and Robert Hardy....
It seems this boy's bathed in ridicule
Too forward, way too physical
It's time that I had another
I'm always wanting more, if there's another one
Give me some more, I'll have another one
I'll have a slice of your mother

This boy's quite spectacular
Not a boy, but a wealthy bachelor
I want a car
I want a car

I sees losers losing everywhere
If I lose it'll only the damn I give for another
I am complete, invincible
If I have one set principle
Then it's to stand on you, brother

This boy is so spectacular
Not a boy, but a wealthy bachelor
I want a car
I want a car

If I like cocaine, I'm racing you
For organic fresh Echinacea
One kick's as good as another
If I'm tired, I'm tired of telling you
I'm never tired, I'm always better than you
Bye-bye boy, run to your mother

This boy is so spectacular
Not a boy, but a wealthy bachelor
I want a car
I want a car

    General CommentThe scary thing is there are so many people who this song reminds me of! People who have to be better than everyone else, and wont let you forget about it.

    General CommentI heard the final version a few days ago and this will need to be changed to the correct lyrics.

    I do love the beginning of this song.

    Yeah.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a Casino - its flashing neon chorus, the need for greed near the tables, the arrogance of winning on the BlackJack table and losers losing. Dont forget - winning that car!
