I want to be straight


I'm Charley, you knowI'm Norman pleased to meet youI'm Mickey, helloWilkoI'm Johnny, how are you doing Harry?My name is DavidAnd I'm Ian? and ? guess whatà?
Oi! I want to be straight,
I want to be straightI'm sick and tired of taking drugs
And staying up late.
I wanna confirm, I wanna conform
I wanna be safe and I wanna be snug
And I wanna be warm I want to be straight,
I want to be straight
I wanna 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 stenchI'm leaving behind 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 wanna give, I wanna give,
I wanna give my consentI'm learning to hate all the things that
Were great when I used to be? bent! Could be not straightness
Might lead to greatness
Owing to lateness
My chance has only just arrived, ha Straight, straight, straight, straight
Straight, straight, straight, straight
Straight, straight, straight, straight, straight I want to be straight,
I want to be straightI'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 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
