"Icing on the Cake" as written by and Stephen Duffy....
Baby, let me make you a statue
To stand outside the council house
To stand as a reminder of what you are
And what you want to be

I want to live with you
Want to sleep with you
In a house, in a peaceful world
They want to take you
They want to break you
Don't let them make you unhappy

You are the icing on the cake
The party on the street
The love you cannot fake
The truth you cannot cheat

You were left on the doorstep
Of the Social Security
You were hoping for a future as someone
Not just a leisure refugee

I always saw you as a fighter and a winner
Not content to only write your name
Their right way is the wrong way for what you are
And what you were born to be

Born to be young and free
To be young and wise
Not to listen to all their lies
Don't let them make you
Don't let them break you
Don't let them make you unhappy

Here we come waltzing home
By the moon so bright
By the sea, by the harbour wall
They want to take you
They want to break you
Shape you and make you unhappy
