My mum told me when I was a kid, she said son I have something to
Just hear my song and you won't go far wrong, if you're lost you
will find your way
(Ch) She said "Always take a hankie when you're going out
somewhere, mind your manners, don't be heard just seen
You're on your best behaviour but in case you get runover, make
sure your socks and underwear are clean"
Mum I hear the other kids laugh, they tell me that I look daft,
because I wear sunglasses that are pink
I know I've just had measles and this won't last forever, but I'd
rather let my eyes go on the blink
But Mum the other kids all mock me, without glasses I can still
see, (Ch) she said 'nothing's ever right for you
They cost a lot of money, you must wear them 'cos it's sunny
They're all we could get they'll have to do'
