Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, mummy dear
They got to have 'em in Texas
'Cause everyone's a millionaire

I'm a winner, I'm a sinner
Do you want my autograph
I'm a loser, what a joker
I'm playing my jokes upon you
While there's nothing better to do

Don't you look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I'm hoping it's going to come true
But there's not a lot I can do

Nan nan nan nan nan...

    The song name is actually "Breakfast in America" from the Supertramp album of the same name, written by Roger Hodgson (Supertramp's co-founder and songwriter). I find these lyrics are stuck in my head a lot :) Something's so cheery and uplifting about the melody. I can't wait to see Roger play this one and all his other gems in concert this coming year, it's always a magical & unforgettable musical journey (check out Roger Hodgson Official Facebook Page for tour dates). I'm amazed that Roger sounds incredibly better than my Supertramp vinyls!

    It takes a long time for you to find the right one. But once you do you will know it for sure because its not about material things ect. But about that one special person
