'Cause he gets up in the morning,
And he comes back home at five-thirty,
'Cause his world is built 'round punctuality,

And he's oh, so fine,
In his body and his mind.
Doing the best things so conservatively.
And his mother goes to meetings,
And she stirs the tea with councilors,
And she passes looks, as well as bills,

And he's oh, so fine,
In his body and his mind.
Doing the best things so conservatively.
And he likes his own backyard,
'Cause he's better than the rest,
And he hopes to grab his father's loot,

And he's oh, so fine,
In his body and his mind.
Doing the best things so conservatively.
And he plays at stocks and shares,
And he adores the girl next door,
But his mother knows the best about

And he's oh, so fine,
In his body and his mind.
Doing the best things so conservatively.
