Can't Help Thinking About Me

Album: Single release only (1966)
  • Question-time that says I brought dishonour
    My head's bowed in shame
    It seems that I've blackened the family name
    Mother says that she can't stand the neighbours talking
    I've gotta pack my bags, leave this home, start walking, yeah
    I'm guilty
    I wish that I was sorry this time
    I wish that I could pay for my crime

    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me

    Remember when we used to go to church on sundays
    I lay awake at night, terrified of school on mondays
    Oh, but it's too late now
    I wish I was a child again
    I wish I felt secure again

    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me

    As I pass a recreation ground
    I remember my friends, always been found and I can't

    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me

    Now I leave them all in the never never land
    The station seems so cold the ticket's in my hand
    My girl calls my name hi dave
    Drop in, see around, come back
    If you're this way again"
    Oh, I'm on my own
    I've got a long way to go
    I hope I make it on my own

    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
    I can't help thinking about me
