He always holds on to his girlfriend
That's where he likes to be
He like to wear the ball
and the chain on his neck
A false sense of security

And when he goes he goes with a smile,
And when he goes he goes with a smile,
And when he goes he goes with a smile,
And when he goes he goes with a smile

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la
Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get high
and get whatever you want to

Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na,
ma-na-na, ma-na-na
Ma-na-na, ma-na-na,
ma-na-na, ma-na-na

A 1957 BSA
He used to collect writing paper

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la
Isn't it dandy a-a-a-a
Ra la la la la
Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get high
and get whatever you want to

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get laid
and get whatever you want to
The world is your oyster
The world is yours

It's yours, it's yours,
it's yours, it's yours
It's yours, it's yours,
it's yours, it's yours

Gimme the chastity, gimme the sanctity,
Gimme the wit, o-oh x5
