I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
Yeah I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
I went up to the country park and hung around till
After dark
Till the girls got home
Till the girls got home

Did I tell you 'bout the one I know, she's on the rag
She spent the summer day inside her sleeping bag
Yeah she spent the summer day inside until it's time
To go to work
And she works all night
Yeah, the girl's alright

The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
And it's like your holidays whenever you go round
And we always have a laugh and then we all get in
The bath
To save on the leccy bill
Me & Jo & Phil'

I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys around the way
I had to go to work
I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys down in the caf'
I had to catch a bus

And when Jo was short of cash I had to give her some
But I didn't really mind cause I was fit for once
So we paid the lacky bill and got the shopping and
We still had
Some for the cinema
So we all went out

She asked me "Do I need to lose a bit of weight?"
And I said "Oh, don't be stupid 'cause you're
Looking great"
And I call her String Bean Jean because the label on
Her jeans says
Seven to eight years old - well that's pretty small
Seven to eight years old - that's pretty small
Seven to eight years old - that's pretty small
Seven to eight years old
