  • When she turned eighteen she went astray
    With her brother's dealer, so they say
    She had the baby yesterday
    Perhaps it's just a rumour
    They kept her prisoner growing up
    Told her Jesus was enough
    She's really into dirty stuff
    Perhaps it's just a rumour
    And if you asked her she'd say

    I'm just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin' to work out
    These cards I've been dealt

    See that girl she's looking great
    She used to be quite overweight
    She may not be entirely straight
    Perhaps it's just a rumour
    Always did as she was told
    Apparently she's on the dole
    Spends it all on alcohol
    Perhaps it's just a rumour

    I'm just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin' to work out
    These cards I've been dealt

    'Cause she did it, she did it
    Her bed is forbidden
    He's fit and she isn't
    She keeps her face hidden
    She told 'em good riddance
    Her sister got with him
    She wishes she didn't
    And now they're all singing

    Just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin' to work out
    These cards I've been dealt

    I'm just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin' to work out
    These cards I've been dealt

    'Cause she did it, she did it
    Her bed is forbidden
    He's fit and she isn't
    She keeps her face hidden
    She told 'em good riddance
    Her sister got with him
    She wishes she didn't
    And now they're all singing

    I'm just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin' to work out
    These cards I've been dealt

    Just tryin' to work out
    How to be like myself
    I'm just tryin to work out
    These cards I've been dealt Writer/s: CHLOE HOWELLS, JAMES LAWRENCE IRVIN, JULIAN EMERY
