"Thumbs Off" as written by Robert Marshall Scott, David Auld Kilgour and Hamish Robert Kilgour....
This little boy like all the rest,
'cause he knows just what to say (to him?).
He's never been put to the test,
'cause he knows just where to find him.
All his life he's ???
Ya know, he's never had no problems.
The house he lived in was so shitty
but she still kept them coming (?)


And who's gonna pay the bills today,
And who's gonna turn the girls away,
And who's gonna make you feel OK,
And who's gonna take the pills today.

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.


He said to his mother one day
"You know, mama ??? difference" (?)
Said said son "You'll have to go, you know it's just too much to keep ya" (?)
The day ??? as he walked down the road ya know his head was full of sorrow.
Little did he know he'd never see his own home again.


And who's gonna pay the bills today,
And who's gonna turn the girls away,
And who's gonna make you feel OK,
And who's gonna take the pills today.

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

And, sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.


He said to his friends "c'mon let's go, I'll take you to the shoulder"
He said "No, no. Look here my friend, you make me feel much older."
They left him alone sitting on the road.
You know, his head was full of marbles.
Little did he know he would never see the words he knew so well.


And who's gonna pay the bills today,
And who's gonna turn the girls away,
And who's gonna make you feel OK,
And who's gonna take the pills today.

Yeah, you know it can't be me.
Yeah, you know it can't be me.

And, sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all.

    This little boy's like all the rest
    cause he knows just what's inside him
    He's never been put to the test
    cause he knows just where to find them

    All his life, his head in his tea
    You know he never had no problems
    But the house he lived in was so shitty
    but she still kept 'em coming

    And who's gonna pay the bills today
    And who's gonna turn the girls away
    And who's gonna make you feel okay
    And who's gonna take the pills today

    Yeah, you know it can't be me
    well, you know it can't be me

    Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all

    He said to his mother one day ago
    "Mum I really think it's different"
    She said "Son, you'll have to go
    you know it doesn't do much to keep ya"

    The day was wet as he walked on the road
    you know his head was full of sorrow
    Little did he know he'd never see
    his own home again

    And who's gonna pay the bills today
    And who's gonna turn the girls away
    And who's gonna make you feel okay
    And who's gonna take the pills today

    Yeah, you know it can't be me
    well, you know it can't be me

    Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all

    He said to his friends "c'mon let's go, I'll take you to the shoulder"
    He said "No, no. Look here my friend, you make me feel much older"
    They left him alone sitting on the road
    You know, his head was full of marble
    Little did he know he'd never see the words he knew so well

    And who's gonna pay the bills today
    And who's gonna turn the girls away
    And who's gonna make you feel okay
    And who's gonna take the pills today

    Yeah, you know it can't be me
    well, you know it can't be me

    Sometimes I just feel too much and I don't wanna feel at all

    This is probably not entirely correct but a bit more accurate.
