"4 Minute Mile" as written by and Dominic Michael Phillips Paul Anthony Noonan....
I'll never run a four minute mile
And that's okay most of the time
Never played for Barcelona
Or sail around the world alone
I'll never be the man on the wire

The time has come to face it and say
That I will never play the Dane
No blowtorch of ambition
It was never part of my mission
And we will never see this day again

But that's okay
Yeah, that's okay most of the time

I'll never make a sun-powered car
Or build sandcastles on Mars
Get good at secrecy and stealth
Or redistribute the wealth
No routine on those parallel bars

I'll never have a salad at McDonald's
Or heed the call to monitise the arts
All those letters to Jim'llfixit lay somewhere in a basket
And the other guy got to play with Adam And The Ants

But that's okay
Yeah, that's okay most of the time

(That's okay)
I'm like Hernandez, he ran away
He wants to see better days
He says this bullfight it's not for me
I'm still in play I got family

(Yeah, that's okay)
Hernandez, he ran away
He wants to see better days
(Most of the time)
He says, "This bullfight, it's not for me"
I gotta half-life, I gotta half-life, I gotta half-life

Yeah, that's okay most of the time
That thing's okay most of the time
Oh, that's okay most of the time

I'll never draw anything but stick-men
And they will never have any clothes
Be together in the mornings
Come upstairs to see your etchings
I'll never suck a golf-ball through a hose

Yeah, I'll never run a four minute mile
And that's okay most of the time
Never launch my own fragrance
Or be proper famous
I may even wear my trousers rolled

But that's okay
Yeah, that's okay most of the time

(That's okay)
I'm like Hernandez, he ran away
He wants to see better days
(Most of the time)
He says this bullfight it's not for me
I'm still in play I got family

(Yeah, that's okay)
Hernandez, he ran away
He wants to see better days
(Most of the time)
He says, "This bullfight, it's not for me"

He's not ashamed of it, he's not ashamed of it
(Most of the time)
He's not ashamed of it, he's not ashamed of it
He's not ashamed of it

Most of the time, most of the time
Most of the time, most of the time
