Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm Charley, you know
I'm Norman pleased to meet you
I'm Mickey, hello
Wilko
I'm Johnny, how are you doing Harry?
My name is David
And I'm Ian and guess what?
Verse 2
Oi!
I want to be straight, I want to be straight
I'm sick and tired of taking drugs and staying up late.
I want to confirm, I want to conform
I want to be safe and I want to be snug and I want to be warm
Verse 3
I want to be straight, I want to be straight
I want to create a place of my own in the welfare state
Brr, gonna be good, brr, gonna be kind
It might be a wrench but think of the stench I'm leaving behind
Verse 4
I want to be straight, I want to be straight
Come out of the cold and do what I'm told and don't deviate
I want to give, I want to give, I want to give my consent
I'm learning to hate all the things that were great when I used to be bent!
Verse 5
Could be not straightness
Dumb dumb dilley
Might lead to greatness
Dur yuh dumb der
Owing to lateness
My chance has only just arrived, ha
Verse 6
Ow! Straight, straight, straight, straight
Straight, straight, straight, straight
Straight, straight, straight, straight, straight
Verse 7
I want to be straight, I want to be straight
I'm sick and tired of taking drugs and staying up late
I know that you're right, I know I was wrong
So thanks very much, please keep in touch, I'll be rhyming along
Verse 8
I want to be straight
I want to be straight
I want to be straight
I want to be straight
I want to be straight
I want to be straight...
