You know there's no such thing as a free meal
And they're ain't no future in British steel
Know the only thing that really makes us smile
Is a joke and a laugh and a night on the tiles
No one ever gives you anything for free
Unless you start sleeping with the BBC

Nigel got a job in the city
Works in a department store
Slogging his guts out all through the week
Looking forward to the weekend score

But tonight he's gonna be somebody
Dancing his heart out with a local girl
She doesn't care whether he's got no money
There's more to life then they teach you at school

And tonight's he's gonna reach somebody
Falling in love with a local girl
She's doesn't care whether he's got no money
She know he's got a heart of solid gold
Solid gold, solid gold

You know there's no such thing as a ticket to ride
Or satisfaction without sacrifice
The only thing that's really true about life
Is that the older you get the more you compromise
No one's gonna hand it to you on a plate
You gotta give, give, give before you take, take, take

Nigel got a job in the city
Works in a department store
Thought that his future was as good as sorted
But he's happy in his little world

But tonight he's gonna be somebody
Dancing his heart out with a local girl
She doesn't care whether he's got no money
There's more to life then they teach you at school

And tonight's he's gonna reach somebody
Falling in love with a local girl
She's doesn't care whether he's got no money
She know he's got a heart of solid gold
Solid gold, solid gold

Be somebody, be somebody
Be somebody, be somebody
Be somebody, be somebody
Be somebody, be somebody

Solid gold, solid gold, solid gold
