I had a keyboard and I had a mouse I had a screen with eye watering res I left the door open when I went out Now there is nothing left for me here except for my NES

A quiet loner all through school and sixth form much the same How could she know that I exist? Why would she know my name? I gather up my courage, planning for the worst But when I go to speak to her someone had got there first The Boy Who Hugged Her Touched Her Bum, she didn’t seem to mind Because she didn’t slap away the hand on her behind I spend my whole life looking, but when I do I find The Boy Who Hugged Her Touched Her Bum and she didn’t seem to mind And now I’m ten years older but nothing much has changed I’ve got a job in IT and a sock drawer that’s arranged The girl who works in finance has a smile that melts my heart But when I go to talk to her it stops before it starts The Boy Who Hugged Her Touched Her Bum, she didn’t seem to mind Because she didn’t slap away the hand on her behind I spend my whole life looking, but when I do I find The Boy Who Hugged Her Touched Her Bum and she didn’t seem to mind But leaving work on Friday night she stops me on my way And nervously she asks if I am free on Saturday And the girl who hugged me touched my bum and I felt overjoyed I might be reading something more, but take that up with Freud Cause all I know is in that squeeze my hopes and spirits buoyed The girl who hugged me touched my bum and I felt overjoyed

Once they would riot while screaming my name Once I was high on my infinite fame Once there were groupies that no man could tame But now every day is grey just the same Where, where did it all go wrong? Without hair how can I sing this song? Where is my crowd? Is this too loud? Have I had my day? Do I need a toupee? Our metal is rusty, our hair nought but frizz They say that there’s no place for grey in showbiz But WD40 and Vidal Sassoon A bottle of dye and a howl at the moon Then, then this will all go right Even in this our blackest night You’ll see, this is where I take flight Bring me my crowd We still play loud And here we’ll stay This is our day
