"When I Write the Book" as written by Nicholas Orain Lowe, William Murray Bremner, Dave Edmunds and Terry Williams....
Well I can remember
Like it was only yesterday
Love was young and foolish
Like a little child at play
But oh how love has changed
I never knew how easily
Now I'm just a shadow
Of the boy I used to be
Yeah yeah

And when I write the book
About my love
It will be about a man
Who was torn in half
By his hope and ambition
Wasted through the years
The man will be written
On every page in tears
When I write, When I write the book
When I write the book about my love
When I write the book about my love

I was a fool to my self
When I kept on running around
I've been a little better
Oh when I tried settling down
Maybe some magic moment
You never know but not for long
But all too soon the magic
Was in a moment gone

And when I write the book
About my love
It will be a heart breaking story
About love and luck
And when I get down on the pages
All I have felt
It will make the hardest heart of the critics heart melt
When I write, When I write the book
When I write the book about my love
When I write the book about my love

When I was young love was fun
I was so happy
I looked so good
And I dressed so happy
Two tone shoes on my feet
Big old smile on my face
As I moved, moved, grooved
All over the place
Now I'm down on my luck
And my complexion is bad
Because my love love life
Is sadder than sad

And when I write the book
About my love
It will be a hard publication
Tougher than tough
When I get down on the pages
All I've amassed
It will shoot to the top
Of the bestsellers list
When I write, When I write the book
When I write the book about my love
When I write the book about my love
When I write the book
When I write the book about my love
When I write the book about my love
