Scenes From My Childhood
Part 1 - The Ceiling
[[Staring at the ceiling darkness all around
Daring to be stationary, dare not make a sound
Looming in the blackness, unnamed dread I found
Longing for a light touch, someone in the round
Help me, I'm lying here in silence
Help me, I'm frightened of the night
Help me, the loneliness holds violence
Help me, I'm wanting to take flight - I'm wanting to take flight]]

Part 2 - Blabbermouth
I loved a girl from near and far - her first name was Rosita
I told a friend in confidence that there was no-one sweeter
He said he'd go and let he know - I begged him not to greet her
But as he broke my confidence, I lost my one Rosita
What a Blabbermouth! Why didn't he shut his north and south?
What a cruel thing to do - it was nothing to him but everything to you
What a Blabbermouth! Why didn't he shut his north and south?
What a cruel thing to do - it was nothing to him but everything to you
What a blabbermouth!

Part 3 - Me and My Brother
[[Me and my brother - partners in crime. Going up Greenford - Cinema time
At the Granada - creamery fare. Strawberry ice cream - tuppence to spare]]
Football in the playground, every single day
Teachers in the staffroom, smoking time away
Mr Owen - Coburn too - taught me all I knew
Mr Collinson's Hillman Minx always seemed brand new
Me and my brother - partners in crime. Playing commandos all of the time
Meeting the high rise - look at the view. Miming to records - Love Me Do
Cricket test match series, summer '63
Wearing out our new lawn, playing constantly
Driving to the boundaries, driving other wild
Pounding in from rockery, Freddie Truman style
Me and my brother

Part 4 - The Child
[[Help me, I want to go on living. help me my scenes must fade away
Help me, my life is there for giving. Help me the child will always stay]]
[[[The Child will always stay, the child will always stay]]]
