All the birds are singing and
the sky is blue
And I'm thinking of something great to do,
The world seems bright, it's a fabulous day,
But there's one big obstacle in my way .... it's
She's/He's the bane of my life,
I wish I'd never met her/him,
The sight of her/him just cuts me like a knife,
'Cause everything that I do, she/he does better.
Team games - she's/he's the one they ask for,
Parties - she/he gets invited,
When she/he does well I feel like hell,
If she/he makes a mistake, then I'm delighted!
Oh we're friends, of course, but
I'm not a jealous person, but,
You see the trouble is
That I've just got to be first.
I wonder whether a politician ever feels the way I do?
Or perhaps when you get to cabinet rank,
You naturally give credit where credit is due?
Perhaps you always want your colleagues to be
the best they can be?
I wonder what would happen if that politician were me?
Apologising just cuts me like a knife,
But I know that every family and leader
Needs to learn to put things straight,
In the home or the Cabinet,
Living to make the other one great, so..
It's going to be different with that girl/boy.
I'm not exactly perfect but,
We might even enjoy it!
We'll tell you in a month or two.
