(Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
Two men on the street
Drinking something cheap
No home, no family
It's cold, nowhere to sleep
Passers-by never catch their eye
Anywhere, one man drinks, the other swears

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

The old man can't understand
No one will shake his hand
I gave security, bombs and colour TV
It cost a few lives
Someone's son always dies
No one shakes his hand
He don't understand

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

This is the history of the world
Of every boy and every girl
Who don't understand what's going on anymore
The history of the world
Of every boy and every girl
Who don't understand what's going on anymore
(What's going on?)

Two girls have a photograph
One looks, the other laughs
He could have been mine
Why did I change my mind?
Then hands on hips
The other girl says: Admit! Admit!

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

This is the history of the world (of the world)
Of every boy and every girl
Who don't (who don't) understand (understand)
what's going on anymore (what's going on?)
The history of the world (Ooooh)
Of every boy and every girl (Every boy and girl)
Who don't (who don't) understand (understand)
what's going on anymore (what's going on?)

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

(Aaaah)

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

(Aaaah)
(Aaaah)

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
(Aaaah) You know

You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
You know
You know where you went wrong
You know where you went wrong
You know
