Al had the guile and the sideways smile
Bad boy and god
Beck knew how to push a boy to blush
Known as The Fox

Tom came out in June to a crowded room
No one was shocked
Ed had the hair, the blues and the shoes
Got me arrested once

Chorus
'Will I ever get this song off my lips' is what you said
We were at each other's buttons and zips
In the blossom shed

Joe wanted to go before he could
Joe's doing good
Cath was my all and every day
She married in May
