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

Moments of sadness, moments of guilt 
Stains on the memory, stains on the quilt 
Chapter of incident, chapter and verse 
Sub-heading chronic, paragraph worse 

Lost in the limelight, backed in the blaze 
Did it for nine pence, those were the days 
Give me my acre and give me my plough 
Tell me tomorrow, don't bother me now 

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada

Times at a distance, times without touch 
Greed forms the habit of asking to much 
Followed at bedtime by builders and bells 
Wait til the doldrums which nothing dispels 

Idly, mentally, doubtful and dread 
Who runs with the beans shall not stale with the bread 
Let me lie fallow and dormant dismay 
Tell me tomorrow, don't bother today 

Fucking ada, fucking ada 
Fucking ada, fucking ada 

Tried like a good un, did it all wrong t
Thought that the hard way was taking to long 
To late for regret or chemical change 
Yesterdays targets have gone out of range 

Failure infolds me with clammy green arms 
Damn the excursions and blast the alarms 
For the rest of what's natural Ill lay on the ground 
Tell me tomorrow if I'm still around 

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada, fucking Ada

Fucking Ada, fucking Ada
Fucking Ada,
