    You have drowned
    a thousand sorrows
    all in one,
    and mixed with mugs, (?)
    and millionaires
    you have done.
    Ya' been and gone and done it
    for a quid,
    and just what you don't know,
    up there you got hid.

    Lord, you're only
    fourteen summers
    and God knows,
    yeah, child,
    you're gettin' mighty
    like a rose.

    You got pulled (?)
    for tryin' to straighten
    up this town,
    and looked bashful
    bribin' old, bent
    Barrister Brown.

    Ya' know, their turnin' on
    in the classroom
    ain't the point.
    It's when you're missin' out
    teacher teach ya' how to
    roll a joint.

    Lord, hey,
    while you're down there
    lookin' up my nose,
    child you're gettin' mighty
    like a rose.

    Next time they try to fire me,
    ya' make the scene.
    You're gettin' sugar cubes
    for breakfast.
    Ya' know what I mean.

    And the, the hazard old, (?)
    the wind blows
    through you' ears.
    Ya' haven't got enough
    of those
    what ya'
    haven't got for years.
    Yeah, but never mind
    steppin' on my toes.
    Yeah, child,
    you're gettin' mighty
    like a rose.

    Yeah, hey, hey,
    you're mighty like a rose.
    Uh-huh, aww, aww, aww, aww, aww, aww,
    mmm-mm, mmm-mm, mmm-mm, mmm-mm
