I was lured by the rocking horse
Fifty wild boys to a room
Black shoes and stockings for those who say don't
God made the world
Wild Christian brothers sharpening their leathers
All I remember is dreading September and school
The fool that I am or the wise man I'll be
It wasn't their fault I was me ...

With thoughts that I do not invite
He slams down the shutter
Stainless as steel
Someone shoot me while my soul is clear
But my vow to abstain was sincere
Raise up your banners on high
Securing my place

Hung round my bed in the darkness, he spied on me

I stood like John Wayne by the wall
You can't wine and dine her in an old Morris Minor
I danced on girls' toes - accepted rejection as my fate
But I couldn't hold it too well
