"Number One Son" as written by and Tracyanne Campbell....
Took a walk in the park for a laugh, we drank sparkling wine
Oh yeah, it was dark, trees could not be identified
The girl you were with, did she have you on your knees?

I shut my mouth, my ears
I don't want to hear you, please
Now you're skipping school, going to listen to records
Wrapped up in mohair dissing your elders
Dip a chocolate finger, take a sip from my cup
Remember what you're dad said "button your lip"

You've got to toughen up for him
He's the kind who will do you in
I should know that it's no fun
You will never be number one
Number one son

God I've tried to help but I think I just hinder
Ask a better girl could she ever be kinder
Love, unlike lightning, can strike you twice
I don't know much, please take my advice

You've got to toughen up for him
He's the kind who will do you in
I should know that it's no fun
You will never be Number one
Number one son

    General CommentI think this song is about a son who's sick of being so overlooked, so he's behaving badly for the attention (skipping school, dissing elders). And I think the girl might be trying to advise him ("God I've tried to help but I think I just hinder"), and threatening that she can fall in love with someone else ("love, unlike lightening, can strike you twice").
