Lyrics

(Go on!)

He's romancing you And chancing his arm He'll be here, smiling on time

He's romancing you And chancing his arm He'll be here, smiling on time

Roy's keen, oh, Roy's keen Roy's keen, oh, Roy's keen We've never seen a keener Window-cleaner

Back up the ladder Into each corner Dunking the chamois Just think of the goodwill

The ladder's a planet Roy is a star And I am a satellite (But that's alright)

He can hold a smile for as long as you require (Even longer) He can hold a smile for as long as you require (Even longer)

Roy's keen, oh, Roy's keen Roy's keen, oh, Roy's keen We've never seen a keener Window-cleaner

Back up the ladder Into each corner Dunking the chamois Just think of the goodwill

The ladder's a planet Roy is a star And I am a satellite I will be set alight

Don't say you'll hold it steady Then you let it go Don't say you'll hold it steady Then you let it go

You're up the ladder Into each corner Foot in a bucket We trust you to wreck it

Even when it's under your nose Well, you just can't see it, can you? Well it's here right under your nose And you just can't see it, can you?

Roy's keen Roy's keen Roy's keen Roy's keen We've never seen a keener Window-cleaner
