Girls who wear the shortest skirts,
And boys who wear the tightest trousers.

They're not gonna do,
What you're telling them to do,
And it's all because of you,
You wear a shirt and tie.

Boys who think they know it all,
And girls who say you should know better,

On a Friday night,
I bet he'll make you feel alright,
And if you ask him then he might,
But he don't want to,

I'd love to kiss you but you only live next door,
Because your mum would get so angry I couldn't see you anymore,
Well you look just like one of those girls of the 1960's films who's framed,
If I just could change, I'd change a bit I'd do it all again,
If I just could change, I'd change a bit I'd do it all again.

Well I believe in something called integrity,

I'm not afraid to say what I don't think,
Is your favourite colour pink?
And if I bought you a drink would you look at me twice.

It's funny now to think of you in discos and in nightclubs,
But I'm sure you're happy there,
Because you're cutting your own hair,
And it look disgusting but I'll say it's rather nice.

I'd love to kiss you but you only live next door,
Because your mum would get so angry I couldn't see you anymore,
Well you look just like one of those girls of the 1960's films who's framed,
If I just could change, I'd change a bit I'd do it all again,
If I just could change, I'd change a bit I'd do it all again.

You said you're sorry like you always do,
Well you do it 'cause you do it to yourself,
Have all-night coffee 'cause you caught the flu,
Well you do it 'cause you do it to yourself.

I'd love to kiss you but you only live next door,
Because your mum would get so angry I couldn't see you anymore,
Well you look just like one of those girls of the 1960's films who's framed,
If I just could change, I'd change a bit I'd do it all again,
If I just could change, I'd probably do it all the same.
