Between the school and the dole queue
The master of all you survey
Swagger slowly through the school yard
All the boys say
'You're so hard'
Your t-shirt is tucked in your trackies
Your broad hands are clenched in a fist
As you're running through the school yard
All the girls want you so hard

And you say your gonna get so far
Working hard on your chin-up bar
And you say your gonna leave this town
And you'll never have to buy a round
And you say your gonna get so far
And your gonna be a superstar
And you say your gonna leave this town
No man around can knock you down

Your girlfriend is still in detention
You park up and smoke by the gates
Her song is playing so
She can hear
Her teacher wishes you'd

It's fight night in town for the bantems
Your confidence matches your stride
Sequins glisten on your dressing gown
First jab and you go down

And your never gonna leave this town
Where you can't afford to buy a round
And your never gonna get too far
Flipping burgers in a fast food bar
And your never gonna leave this place
Non-starter in the human race
And your never gonna leave this town
Cos you didn't even last the round

Small town hero
