I've saved a little bit of money from Christmas gone
What with my birthday nearly due
I'm dressing up as guy in the shopping arcade
Have you a penny for a boy named Blue?

I've seen it advertised on TV shows
Flashed up on the evening news
My local M.P. said I should grin and bear it
But I'd rather go and blow her fuse

Right on, right off
Right off, right on
Right on, right off
Right on, right off

Let me tell you a little tale of naught's
On the estate I used to loathe
I aimed thirty rockets at a Shilling each
You should have seen their front door's go

Right on, right off
Right off, right on
Right on, right off
Right off, right on
Let it talk CB

Fireball XL sitting in the window
Just waiting for a match to come
You're looking so so sad in your pretty colored frock
Don't let that make up on your eye balls run

I got my little lot of money from a cherished friend
His name was piggy but he wasn't to know
He hit my god-damn hammer like a wall of bricks
You should have seen his pig tail go

Right on, right off
Right off, right on
Right on, right off
Right off, right on

Fireball XL propped up at my window
Wondering what on Earth it's to do
Now that it's gone from the window of the shopping arcade
Everybody's looking for a boy named blue

Blue, blue
Blue, blue
Blue, blue
Blue, blue

Quack, quack, quack, quack
Oink, oink, oink, oink
Woof, woof, woof, woof
Bridit, bridit, bridit, bridit

Albert, Albert
Don't call, us we'll call you
