"Cheryl Tweedy" as written by and Daniel De Mussenden/poole Carey....
I wish I had one good reason why
I should stay
How'd I get myself
Into this place?

I wish had qualities like
Sympathy
Fidelity
Sobriety
Sincerity
Humility
Instead I got lunacy
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I wish I could fit myself in my pocket
And tie myself to a rocket
And send myself to outer space
I wish I had a different face
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I wish I had one good reason why
I should stay
How'd I get myself
Into this place?

I wish my life was a little less seedy
Why am I always so greedy?
Wish I looked just like Cheryl Tweedy
I know I never will
I know I never will
I wish my life was not so boring
Every weekend four to the flooring
Don't get me started on Monday morning
Get with the other girl
Get with the other girl

I wish I had one good reason why
I should stay
How'd I get myself
Into this place?

I wish I could apologize
Be dignified
Wish I could look you in the eye
And tell you that I never lie
And wish that I could stop the cries
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Don't wake me up today
Under my duvet's
Where I wanna stay
Don't wanna come out to play
Doesn't matter what you say anyway

I wish my life was a little less seedy
Why am I always so greedy?
Wish I looked just like Cheryl Tweedy
I know I never will
I know I never will
I wish my life was not so boring
Every weekend four to the flooring
Don't get me started on Monday morning
Get with the other girl
Get with the other girl

I wish I didn't smoke so many cigarettes
Another program on antiques on the TV set
Wish I had blond hair
Wish I had green eyes

So many things about myself that I despise
(I wish my life was a little less seedy)
So many things about my life that I despise
(I wish my life was a little less seedy)
So many things that I despise
(I wish my life was a little less seedy)
So many things that I despise

Helps that I was in this long, dark tunnel
Helps that I was in this long, dark tunnel
Helps that I was in this long, dark tunnel
Helps that I was in this long, dark tunnel

    General CommentI disagree with Online.

    This song is supposed to be sarcastic, it's about a girl who is really self consious and its driving her insane. And it's people like Cheryl Tweedy who are driving her to this. Lily must have picked Cheryl because shes the perfect, skinny, girl band member with a footballer husband...

    WHY THE HELL WOULD LILY ALLEN WANT TO LOOK LIKE CHERYL TWEEDY, ONLINE! IT'S COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT THE TWO HATE EACH OTHER!

    General CommentNow now x.Rosenrot.x! This song was released as the B Side to Smile in July 2006. As this was her 1st successful single and brought her to the medias attention. Thereafter Lilly and Cheryl started mouthing off at each other. The B Side was probably recorded before they met or before started hating each other. Is it sarcastic or serious? Ive no idea!

    General Commentfirst of all, these lyrics are wrong..

    and she has written because she is pissed off with cheryl and is using this song to mock her and put her to shame for calling Lily "a chick with a dick".
    look at her blog, how can you not know that already??

    we love it.. cheryl is a twat and we love lily.
