  • Safety pins holding up the things
    That make you mine
    About your hair, you needn't care
    You look beautiful all the time

    Shine, shine, shine on
    Yes, won't you shine, shine on?

    Your magazines rip people at the seams
    But you still read
    I must admit, I don't believe in it
    But I see how you get sucked in

    Shine, shine, shine on
    Yes, won't you shine, shine on?
    (Sha-la-la-la)
    Shine, shine, shine on
    Yes, won't you shine, shine on?

    Because you're not done
    Why do you bite the hand that feeds you?
    Why do you
    Why do you bite the hand that feeds? Yeah

    Shine, shine, shine on
    Yes, won't you shine, shine on?
    (Sha-la-la-la)
    Shine, shine, shine on
    Yes, won't you shine, shine on?

    Safety pins holding up the things
    That make you mine
    About your hair, you needn't care
    You look beautiful all of the time Writer/s: LUKE PRITCHARD
