The Lyrics

What is it like to be the winner?
Or just once to feel success
All my life, bin getting answers wrong
My history's measured in 'f's

Failure, has got me on my knees.
Failure, will blunders never cease?
Failure, OK, so take the "peace" 'cause I don't mind

People gave me consolation
When I failed, yet again
Felt a fool, if what I said was true
T'would really go against the grain


I came off worst, any situation
And I was always last in class
Unresigned, I went on Mastermind
The one game show in which I'll "pass"

I found this by clicking on the 'random' button. Failure? Not this one, it's a A all over Phil.

As opposed to my grammatical ability (actually it was a slip of the digitalis). Make that *an* A...
