    I wouldn't be glad wouldn't be sad
    I wouldn't be good if I knew what I could
    And I hate to go
    But I must you know

    Duty calls
    Niagara falls
    See it go down
    As it falls on the ground
    And gets up again
    At the count of ten

    I would like everyone here to repeat after me
    Something of which I know nothing about
    Namely that which I will tell you
    (that which I will tell you)
    I'm going to school breaking a rule
    I'm going around in a pitiful frown
    Cause I didn't pass (came)
    Bottom of the class (oh! what a shame)

    Teacher was mad
    So was me dad
    Took off his belt
    And without any help
    Really hit me hard
    Where I'd stuck a card

    Thick I may be but a fool I am certainly not
    Always remember the golden rule
    When in no doubt get a car out
    And while you're there how about,
    Fetching me one of those pneumatic drills
    Boy! I really love the sound that they make
    So good for the pains and aches of life in general
    Don't be such a miser

    At the most a fiver's all you pay
    Many's the time
    I have wondered about what it is
    I want you all to repeat after me
    Something I know you know I know
    (Something I know you know I know)
    I wouldn't behold wouldn't be cold
    I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my

    Dear old mum and dad
    And the fun they had
    Early one night
    Dad put out the light
    Got hold of me mum
    Said he wanted a son
    And as you can see
    The result was me

    Somebody told me once money does not grow on trees
    Well if that's true then how do you explain
    Apples oranges and lemons
    Not forgetting melons
