The Lyrics


For once in your life can’t you do something useful,
Something to make us all smile.
For once I’m afraid, you can never be truthful,
I know it isn’t your style.

For once I could pray that you’d do something different,
Something good as well.
Far as I can tell,
There’s not a hope in hell!

For once in your life say some words that won’t hurt me,
Because you’ve hurt me before.
For once I just wish you would go and desert me,
Don’t want you round anymore.

For once you can say what you want, I won’t listen,
The sooner you walk out my life I’ll be wishin’
For once and for all, I’ll have no-one needling me.
