  • Daddy was dumb, said that I'd be something special
    Brought me up tough but I was a gentle human
    Said that he loved each of my two million freckles
    When I grew up, was gonna be a superstar

    I can't get a job so I live with my mom
    I take her money but not quite enough
    I sit in the car and I listen to static
    She said I look fat but I look fantastic

    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe
    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe

    I'm waking up, lost in boxes outside Tesco
    Look like a bum, sipping codeine Coca-Cola
    Thought that I was northern Camden's own Flash Gordon
    Sonic raygun, gonna be a superstar

    I can't get a job so I live with my mom
    I take her money but not quite enough
    I make my own fun in grandmama's basement
    Said I look mad, she said I look wasted

    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe
    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe

    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe
    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe
    Come back down to my knees
    Gotta get back, gotta get free
    Come back down to my knees
    Be like them, lean back and breathe Writer/s: David Algernon Bayley, Tariq Tafo
