  • I'll have a shower
    And then phone my brother up
    Within the hour
    I'll smash another cup

    Please don't start saying that
    Or I'll start believing you
    If I start believing you
    I'll know that this party fears two

    And what if this party fears two?
    The alcohol loves you while turning you blue
    View it from here
    From closer to near, awake me

    Don't turn around
    I won't have to look at you
    And what's not found
    Is all that I see in you

    My manners are failing me
    I'm left feeling ugly
    And you say it's wonderful
    To live with I never will

    So what if this party fears two?
    The alcohol loves you while turning you blue
    View it from here
    From closer to near, awake me

    I'm standing still
    And you say I dress too well
    Still standing still
    I might but it's hard to tell

    Even a slight remark
    Makes nonsense and turns to shark
    Have I done something wrong?
    What's wrong's the wrong that's always in wrong

    I'll have a shower
    And then phone my brother up
    Within the hour
    I'll smash another cup

  • Rod from Gainesville, FlTHis song seems realy familiar Was it used as a theme song in some show?
  • Kenny from Clydebank, ScotlandDefinitely one of the best scottish pop songs of all time, Lulu's To Sir With Love, Gallagher and Lyle's, Breakaway, being other strong contenders.
    What a great performance on TOTP's. Pity Billy didn't live longer to give us a few classics.
    Did Scotland proud so he did.
