Alan's mum and dad
They brought him up quite well
They taught him how to
read and write
And how to speak 'n' spell TM
But now he's getting older
He's broken all his toys
They're sending him on holiday
With other naughty boys
But it makes him laugh
And the world laughs with him
Never would have guessed
He'd get it wrong

We're making it up as we go along

Josephine and Shirley
Were the girls that I like best
But now I see their lovers
Are both buried in a chest
Their father built the rockery
That hid their little crime
Now Shirley's doing magazines
And Daddy's doing time

But it makes him laugh
ha! ha!
And the world laughs with him
He never would have guessed
she'd get it right
Never would have guessed
she'd turn out my light
It don't take a minute
No it won't take long

We're making it up as we go along
Humming a half remembered song
When we woke up we thought
what's the big deal
Then we remember
This is for reallllllll

Well you've got to laugh
And the world laughs with you
Feel the fear and do it anyway
Are you gonna come
Gonna come outside and play

No it don't take a minute
No I don't take long

We're making it up as we go along
Humming a half remembered song
When we woke up we thought
what's the big deal
Then we remember
This is for real...

This is for REAL!
