Fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa

I am a dull and simple lad
Cannot turn water from champagne
And I have never met the Queen
And I wish I could have all that he has got
And I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream, I could fight like David Watts
Lead the school team to victory
And take my exams and pass the lot

(Wish I could be)
Wish I could be like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
Wish I could be like David Watts

(Wish I could be)
Conduct my life like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa

He is the head boy at the school
He is the captain of the team
He is so gay and fancy free
And I wish all his money belonged to me
And I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa

And all the girls in the neighborhood
Try to go out with David Watts
They try their best but can't succeed
For he is of pure and noble breed

Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like
(Fa, fa, fa)
Wish I could be like
(Fa, fa, fa)

Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I, wish I, wish I)
Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I, wish I, wish I)

Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I, wish I, wish I)
Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I, wish I, wish I)

Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I could be like)
Fa, fa, fa
(Wish I could be like)
