Track Name: Teenager
For your birthday she sent you a card
She didn’t sign her name she gave an autograph
Now she’s trying to call your bluff
Is she your true love?
We knew the boy who went from Mod to Ted
She asked matter of fact had he gone off his head
He was uncomplaining as a tree
Not a thing like me

You’re not a teenager
So don’t act like one
Sure she’s a heartbreaker
Does she have one?
Is it down to me, down to me we both rarely speak?
I went for a stroll after dark
I thought of you with her while staring at the black
I didn’t have you down for being easily led
Or the girl well read
I went for a stroll after dark
I thought of you and her, I think I’m going mad
Can you help me to see where I’m going wrong?
Help me finish this song
Track Name: I Don't Want To See You
I can’t believe that I’m writing this down
I can’t believe I’ve got you in a song
I don’t want to be a whining girl I’d rather not be in your world
I stole a magazine from a Laundromat
The posters in the bag they were breaking my back
All I wanted was a bench to rest my weary legs
I sat and had a greet, I have done my best

I’ll get my operation on the N.H.S
Will it cure my blushes will it bring out my best?
Some will say I was a woman pretending to be a girl
I will make no comment of this I’ve had my fill
This can’t go on
When is it going to stop?
You casually walked back to your room tonight
Take the flight of stairs and softly dim the light
Fantasize about how happy you’d be with a girl tonight

I don’t want to see you down
I don’t want to see you hanging around
I don’t want to see you down
I don’t want to see you hanging around
Track Name: Footloose And Fancy Free
Buy me an advent calendar
It seems the thought of days without you make me sadder
Don’t visit me now you make me want to do myself in
I’ll see you sometime but I won’t see you soon

I know something’s about you
I won’t spill the beans
There’s a spool in my own camera that’s never been seen
I could write it all down but it won’t be enough
I want you to be happy with someone to love

It won’t be me
It won’t be you
Pretty soon we’ll agree to be free
Footloose and fancy free
