I am starting to function In the usual way Everything is so provocative Very very, temporary I shall walk (I shall walk) Out of this place (out of this place) I shall walk Out on you 'Cause you go silly If she's willing Trying so hard to be like the big boys
So you take her to the pictures Trying to become a fixture Inch by inch trying to reach her All the way through the second feature Worrying about your physical fitness Tell me how you got this sickness, Oh ohhhh..
I was caught in the suction By a face like a truncheon I was down upon one knee Stroking her vanity
I was stuck on a hammerhead I came alive and left for dead As my face returned to red Choking on my pride and pity
We can talk (we can talk) Until your face is blue (till your face is blue) We can talk but she'll get to you After you've been loved and hated By the ones you've watched and waited Found that they were overrated
She'll be the one - when the party's over She'll be the one - when the girls have gone home She'll be the one - that you'll wish you'd held onto She'll be the one - but it's too late for you to She'll be the one - who knows all your history She'll be the one -
So you can cross her off your list And you try so hard And you try so hard And you try so hard To be like the big boys, oh.
