lyrics

I beat a kid half to death with a bed leg
when I was a young man
school kept it hid
with a wink to the bad egg
thanks to my mum and dad

Never had to do a thing to make up for
all the things that I probably oughta
I was certainly summa cum laude for sure

But now I’m looking like the everyday man
looking like the everyday man
join us now and we will show you
who you can be better than

I might’ve said some stuff to a girl in her bedroom
when I was a young man
never got the blame
just gossip in the common room
‘cause big ties understand

I can do what I want when I want to
consequences are for those not entitled to
everything I was given the day I was born

And now I’m looking like the everyday man
looking like the everyday man
join us now and we will show you
who you can be better than

I help my missus with the shopping
it doesn’t hurt to do her chores
I get to see cheese prices shocking them
when they leave their factory floors

But I want their vote and no doubt they’ll elect me?
‘cause I’m still a young man
I have no fear
that these fools will reject me
‘cause everyone understands

I represent everything they believe in
win at all cost, yeah, that’s something to believe in
they love that rosette but they know that they vote for this man

Yes I’m looking like the everyday man
looking like the everyday man
join us now and we will show you
who you can be better than
