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 (until 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
