What she said :
"How come someone hasn't noticed
That I'm dead
And decided to bury me?
God knows, I'm ready!"
La-la-la...

What she said was sad
But then, all the rejection she's had
To pretend to be happy
Could only be idiocy
La-la-la...

What she said was not for the job or
Lover that she never had
Oh...
No no no...

What she read
All heady books
She'd sit and prophesise
(It took a tattooed boy from
Birkenhead
To really really open her eyes)

What she read
All heady books
She'd sit and prophesise
(It took a tattooed boy from
Birkenhead
To really really open her eyes)

What she said :
"I smoke 'cause I'm hoping for an
Early death
And I need to cling to something!"

What she said :
"I smoke 'cause I'm hoping for an
Early death
And I need to cling to something!"
No no no no...
