Oooh, he was a light star trippin' on a high wire.
Bulldog stubborn, born uneven.
A classless creature, a man for all seasons.
But don't bet them they can't take him to the very bottom -
Because, they made him and they'll waste him.
And I don't believe (sigh!) that I wanna watch them.


'Cos the fifties shifted out of gear. Mmm,
He was an idol then, now he's an idol here.
But his face has changed, he's not the same no more.
And I have to say that I like the way his music sounded before.

He was tight-assed; Walking on broken glass.
Highly prized in the wallet size.
The number one crush in a schoolgirl's eyes.
But don't pretend that it won't end in the depth of your despair.
You went from lame suits right down to tennis shoes, to peanuts from the lion's share.
