Tobacco stains our yellow teeth
And all our fingers and underneath Our fingernails, that clasp on sheets As we try desperately to sleep  Hearts are sad and eyes are tired And all this Red Bull keeps us wired Gives us wings It gives us rings around our eyes

We put three sugars in our tea
Sit to watch too much day time TV And laugh at mums
Who don't know who the father is

And all our girlfriends are long gone
We watch too much internet porn
Who needs love
When you've got silicone and strap ons

And beer bloats our spoiled guts
And shit jobs keep us in ruts
And keep us eying up
The what's and ifs and buts and maybes 
And falling over in the street Is just a part of every week
And we lie drunkenly Just staring at the stars  Remember when they were in reach And all the teachers used to teach You can do anything If you put your mind to it

We put our minds to it all
But disappointment crashed the ball
We could have done anything But we just never quite knew it

So tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night Tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night 
And tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night And tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night 
Oh oh, so tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night And tie your scarf on tight It's to be a cold night
