  • This is my face
    Covered in freckles
    With the occasional spot
    And some veins

    This is my body
    Covered in skin
    And not all of it
    You can see

    And, this, is my mind
    It goes over and over
    The same old lines

    And, this, is my brain
    It's torturous analytical thoughts
    Make me go insane

    And I use mouthwash
    Sometimes I floss
    I got a family
    And I drink cups of tea

    I've got nostalgic pavements
    I've got familiar faces
    I've got a mixed-up memory
    And I've got favourite places

    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I hope everything's gonna be alright
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I hope everything's gonna be alright
    This is my face

    I've got a thousand opinions
    And not the time to explain

    And this is my body
    And no matter how you try and disable it
    Yes I'll still be here

    And, this, is my mind
    And although you try to infringe
    You cannot confine

    And, this, is my brain
    And even if you try and hold me back
    There's nothing that you can gain

    'Cause I use mouthwash
    Sometimes I floss
    I've got a family
    And I drink cups of tea

    I've got nostalgic pavements
    I've got familiar faces
    I've got a mixed-up memory
    And I've got favourite places

    I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I hope everything's gonna be alright
    And I'm singing "oh oh" on a Friday night
    And I hope everything's gonna be alright
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh Writer/s: KATE MARIE NASH
