Expectations Submit Correct Lyrics

Monday morning wake up knowing that you've gotta go to school
Tell your Mum what to expect, she says "It's right out of the blue"
Do you went to work in Debenham's, because that's what they expect
Start in lingerie and Doris is your supervisor

And the head said "That you always were a queer one from the start"
For careers you say you wanna be remembered for your art
Your obsessions get you known throughout the school for being strange
Making life-size models of the velvet underground in clay

In the queue for lunch they take the piss, you've got no appetite
And the rumor is you never go with boys that you are tight
So they jab you with a fork, you drop the tray and go berserk
While you're cleaning up the mess the teacher's looking up your skirt

Hey you've been used
Why you can't settle down?
Write a song, I'll sing along
Soon you will know that you are sane
You're on top of the world again

Monday morning wake up knowing that you've got to go to school
Tell your Mum what to expect, she says "It's right out of the blue"
You wanna work in C&A, 'cause that's what they expect
Move to lingerie and take a feel off Joe the store man

Tell Veronica the secrets of the boy you never kissed
She's got everything to gain 'cause she's a fat girl with a lisp
She sticks up for you when you get aggravation from the snobs
'Cause you can't afford a blazer girl you're always wearing clogs

At the interval you lock yourself away inside a room
Head of English gets you asks you
"What the hell do you think you're doing?"
Do you think you're better then the other kids? Well get outside
You've got permission, you've got to make the bastard think he's right

Hey you've been used
Write a song, I'll sing along
Why you can't settle down?
Soon you will know that you are sane
You're on top of the world again

Are you true and you know
You're a star and you'll go far
Listen to me as a friend not just look okay guitar
You're on top of the world again
