If you
Get out
Before September
Remember
That I'm
Still inside
But I'm dry
I'm dry

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're so different
And then I
Try
And just die
I die

You know
That I need
You more than I want ya
But I want ya
For all time
So I
I guess on the line

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
So it's on
With the show

Sometimes
A smoke
A drink and a ponder
Can work wonders
When you're down
Takes your frown
Turns it 'round
Around

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're no different
Than when I
Try
And just die
I die

...and now
That your day-
Dream is forgotten
And forgiven
And the world
Has been saved
Be brave

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
Cos I walk
In shadow
And I never ever
Really show my face
But I'm only ever seen
In the right place
