How many times have I been around?

Recycled papers paving the ground Well, she lives for the written word And people come second, or possibly third And there is no style, but I say well done To the girl least likely to

Deep in my heart, how I wish I was wrong But deep in my heart, I know I am not And there's enough gloom in her world, I'm certain Without my contribution So I sit, and I smile, and I say well done To the girl least likely to

Page after page of sniping rage An English singe or an American tinge There's a publisher she said in the new year - It's never in this year - I do think this but I can't admit it To the girl least likely to

So one more song with no technique One more song which seems all wrong And though the news is bad again See me as I am again And the Scales of Justice sway one way In the rooms of those least likely to

Deep in my heart, how I want to be wrong But the moods and the styles too frequently change From 21 to 25 From 25 to 29 And I sit and I smile and I say well done To the girl least likely to

One more song about The Queen Or standing around the shops with thieves "But somebody's got to make it!" she screams "So why, why can't it be me?" But she would die if we heard her sing From the heart, which is hurt

So how many times will I shed a tear And another stage averse to cheer? When you shine in the public eye, my dear Please remember these nights When I sit in support with a dutiful smile Because there's nothing I can say

So chucking and churning and turning the knife On everything, except your own life And a clock somewhere strikes midnight And an explanation it drains me If only there could be a way

There is a different mood all over the world A different youth, unfamiliar views And dearest it could all be for you So will you come down and I'll meet you With no more poems, with nothing to hit home Darling it's all for you Darling it's all for you Oh, Darling it's all for you Oh, Darling it's all for you
