Number Nine – Livin' On My Own lyrics

Last night I spent a night on the town
- mama don't know it, daddy don't know it -
A cocktail waitress turned me upside down
(then she said I'd be her lover and darling)

2 A. M. I'd board the silver train
- mama don't know it, daddy don't know it -
Only to find her with her whips and chains
Then she said I'd be her one night stand cause

Chorus:
I'm living on my own (he's living on his own)
Out a dusk and out at dawn to wake the morning sun
(he's living on his own) I'm living on my own
(he's never going home till the night's gone)

I let the dished pile up in the sink
- mama don't know it, daddy don't know it -
Don't need to justify the bathroom stink
(cos' I have broken out of teenage guidance)

No one left to say what I should it
- mama don't know it, daddy don't know it -
Don't like vegetables only meat
That's why I feel like a cat in heat, yeah

This is just the way I live my life
I don't need a mother or a wife cause

Chorus

Some say I'm cruel and at times I'm mean
- mama don't know it, daddy don't know it -
I'd pick up a chick to get the homeground clean
That's just the way that I want to be, yeah

Chorus
