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
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh, what a 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...oh

You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
Oh...

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

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

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

But you've got everything now
You've got everything now
And what a terrible mess I've made of my life
Oh, what a mess I've made of my life

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

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

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

Oh...
You are your mother's only son
And you're a desperate one
Oh...

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

    General CommentWhen I was at school I was pretty good academically and also on the sports field. Well, lets be honest... I won everything.
    Since leaving school however, I've noticed that the people I thought of as morons and losers seem to be earning money, buying cars and forming relationships while my life is going nowhere fast. It's got to the stage where I'm willing to ride around in a car with this guy I never liked just so people think I have some kind of social life!
