Lyrics

I take the cue from

Certain people I know I use the cue And then I hand it on to you

And when I swing it So, it catches his eye Weren't you there? - You'd have died!

I trust the views of Certain people I know They look at danger And they laugh their heads off

Their clothes are imitation George the 23rd Don't you find this absurd?

I'd hate to be like Certain people I know They break their necks And can't afford to get them fixed

They'd sacrifice all Of their principles for Anything cashable I do believe it's terrible
