As merry as the days were long
I was right and you were wrong

Back at the old grey school
I would win and you would lose

But you've got everything now
and what a terrible mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
because I've never wanted one

I've seen you smile
but I've never really heard you laugh

So who is rich and who is poor?
I cannot say...

You are your mother's only son
and you're a desperate one

But I don't want a lover
I just want to be seen in the back of your car

A friendship sadly lost?
Well, this is true... and yet, it's false

Did I ever tell you, by the way
I never did like your face

But you've got everything now
and what a terrible mess I've made of my life

No, I've never had a job
because I'm too shy

But I don't want a lover
I just want to be tied to the back of your car.
