"Gorgeous George" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
Without hurting you
How can I make you see
This might mean everything to you
But it don't mean nothing to me
And whilst your hangers on
Are laughing nervously
You'll lock them in your penthouse suite
Then you'll throw away the key

Chorus:

Gorgeous George
The last of the go-getters
Gorgeous George
A dandy to the letter
You really should know better
Gorgeous George

Such exquisite taste
From your head to toes
Stuck inside your lady's chambers
Powdering your nose
And now you're holding court
With the Pearly King
Whilst outside on your balcony
This mockingbird will sing

(Chorus)

You needn't walk so proud
You needn't talk so loud
You're just a face in the crowd
And you should know it
You flit from floor to floor
Buying up the store
But you still want more
So you blow it

I've a life of my own
That you refuse to see
One hundred at your beck and call
So why'd you pick on me?
Should I return that call?
Talk to your answerphone?
Just make sure that the blinds are drawn
And pretend you're not at home

(Chorus)
