Try to stand out wear a loud shirt Or a white suit like Tom Wolfe Make sure it's flameproof There's no rules to it anymore Ask Tipper Gore Second best wins and makes L Bush FLOTUS Elmo's mouth's gotta be worked by someone I'm someone and I'd go back to college Learn how to work a muppet F*ck it I'll say marionette I can dream of it while slurping my vanilla briquette or ice cream sundae Yeah someday I could be the next Jim Henson Cash in the pension Move to LA Punch and Judy shows outside the movies Who is Judy anyway? And what year is this? The smell of summer nights drifts through the window The smell of summer nights wafts through the back door You say you're sure you saw my face before I doubt it, I mean I don't really get out much You're probably mistaking me for your neighbour's grandson She thinks he's handsome I'm not so certain Most nights this week I've sewn my own curtains Buttoned-backed, blackout fabric and tab tops It's usually a conversation stopper Now I've read 57 books this year Most with big pictures read out loud to my nephew and niece Rhys and Bernice Distilled truths told by animal families Ignoring the fallacy they'd be each others' dinners A crocodile taught me about sharing A dinosaur expanded my vocabulary A dog sold me a lie about how he could fly and still The smell of summer nights drifts through the window The smell of summer nights wafts through the back door This could be my big break Maybe she'll up her own place Advance tickets to Kings Cross In Camden Town I got lost But this could be my big break This could be my big break Set up some meetings Put off the bill for the heating This could be my big break This guy called Neil reckons he can get me a publishing deal Needs some cash in advance for the work though But he loves my rhymes and unusual flow Says it sounds a bit shite and that's what he likes And this could be my big break Maybe she'll give up her own place This could be my big break
