He looks like Ian Rush
done up like Bobby Crush
and when he laughs
he laughs a lot
like Basil Brush.

He wants to pull this bird
the one like Thora Hird
but he’ll regret
they ever met
or said a word.

However hard he tries
she cuts him down to size:

Don’t start
talking back to me now,
your part
is to wait and see now.
My heart
never will be free,
don’t start
talking back to me.

He dances for a while
and puts on all the style
but when he moves
he moves a lot
like Sandy Lyle.

He thought his Jerry Lee
and talk of Arthur C
would come across
like Johnny Ross
or Simon Dee.

However hard he tries
she cuts him down to size:

Don’t start
something you can’t finish,
your part
is not to diminish.
My heart
wasn’t made for two,
don’t start
something you can’t do.

Don’t start
talking back to me now,
your part
is to wait and see now.
My heart
never will be free,
don’t start
talking back to me.
