"Sheila Take a Bow" as written by Johnny Marr and Steven Patrick Morrissey....
Is it wrong to want to live on your own?
No, it's not wrong, but I must know
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad?

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you
Oh

Is it wrong not to always be glad
No, it's not wrong, but I must add
How can someone so young
Sing words so sad

Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear
And don't go home tonight
Come out and find the one that you love and who loves you
The one that you love and who loves you

Take my hand and off we stride
Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
You're a girl and I'm a boy
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
la, la, la, la, la
Take my hand and off we stride
Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
I'm a girl and you're a boy
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
Sheila take a, Sheila take a bow
La, la, la, la, la, la
Throw your homework onto the fire
Come out and find the one that you love
Come out and find the one you love
