Number one son

Took a walk in the park for a laugh we had sparkling wine
Oh yes it was dark trees could not be identified
That girl you were with did she have you on your knees
I shut my mouth my ears I don't want to hear you please

Now we're skipping school going to listen to records
Wrapped up in mohair dissing your elders
I dip a chocolate finger, take a sip from my cup
Remembered what you're dad said "button your lip"

You've got to toughen up for him
He's the kind who will do you in
I should know that it's no fun
You will never be number one
Number one son

God I've tried to help but I think I just hinder
Find another girl could she ever be kinder
Love unlike lightning can strike you twice
I don't know much, but use my advice

You've got to toughen up for him
He's the kind who will do you in
I should know that it's no fun
You will never be number one
Number one son

You've got to toughen up for him
He's the kind who will do you in
I should know that it's no fun
You will never be No.1
No.1 son.
