What can I do?
How can I show you,
And let you see,
That I am someone,
That you want me to be.

I'm only me,
Not someone better,
Not someone good.
I'd be a soldier,
That's if I only could.

If I were king,
I'd tell my army,
To change the world.
Then I'd be someone,
Like you want me to be.

In my little life,
I know that the world must keep on turning,
Even though it leaves me far behind.
Life is like a school,
But I'm not prepared to keep on learning,
Even though it treats me like a fool.

This is our lot,
To live together,
Not live apart.
Let's stay together,
Until death us do part.

Not just a day,
But till forever,
Just as the stars,
Just as the ending,
Until death us do part.

    Song FactThis song was commissioned as the theme tune for the 1968 film 'Till Death Us Do Part' staring Warren Mitchell as the irascible Alf Garnett.

    I saw the film years ago but was dismayed to find that the song version on the film wasn't even sung by Ray but by Tony Booth (Tony Blair's father in law) instead.
