First time you had me
You really did it this time, you did
Did you count your fingers after shaking my
Hand, God forbid?

Riff raff, crawing from the slums
Right there, in front of all your chums
I swear by the pricking of my thumbs
I'll make your day, and melt a-way

I'll crawl back (crawl back)under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back)under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone

That you won't have to stand next to me
You won't have to introduce me
You won't have to think about, talk about, care about me.

I'll crawl back

I've got a nerve just showin my face don't you think?
Scruffy little likes ought to know their place, don't ya think?
Oh boy, sorry to intrude
Damn shame, plenty bloody rude
I should be horsewhipped and sued,
Then go qui-et-ly, my tail between my knees

I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone

That you won't have to stand next to me
You won't have to introduce me
You won't have to think about, talk about, care about me.

I'll crawl back

I want to be made of glass
Frozen in a sea that's made of glass
I just don't want to be, I just don't want to be free

You had me in a second, you had a (unintelligible) you did.
Did you guess my game, and my name like a number, you did.

Somehow I gave myself away
Some card, some word I didn't say
I missed one line in the play
And the trap shut tight,
And it did me all right

I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone
I'll crawl back (crawl back) under my stone

That you won't have to stand next to me
You won't have to introduce me
You won't have to think about, talk about, care about ...
You won't have to ask about, fuss about, discuss about ...
You won't have to mind about, swear about, forget about me.

I'll crawl back (crawl back)
I'll crawl back (crawl back)
I'll crawl back (crawl back)
I'll crawl back (crawl back)


I'll crawl back
Ohh, I'll crawl back
I'll crawl back
I'll crawl back
