 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

On the day that your mentality 
Decides to try to catch up with your biology 

Come round ...
'Cause I want the one I can't have 
And it's driving me mad 
It's all over, all over, all over my face 

On the day that your mentality 
Catches up with your biology 

I want the one I can't have 
And it's driving me mad 
It's all over, all over, all over my face 

A double bed 
And a stalwart lover for sure 
These are the riches of the poor 

A double bed 
And a stalwart lover for sure 
These are the riches of the poor 

And I want the one I can't have 
And it's driving me mad 
It's all over, all over my face 

A tough kid who sometimes swallows nails 
Raised on Prisoner's Aid 
He killed a policeman when he was 
Thirteen 
And somehow that really impressed 
Me 
And it's written all over my face 

Oh, these are the riches of the poor 
These are the riches of the poor 

I want the one I can't have 
And it's driving me mad 
It's written all over my face 

On the day that your mentality 
Catches up with your biology 

And if you ever need self-validation 
Just meet me in the alley by the 
Railway station 
It's all over my face 
Oh...
