Me & My Shadow Submit Correct Lyrics

Johnny and Robbie
Youth, why you talking like that were from Stoke
I dunno, but I can't stop here, pally

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Oh, like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
You'll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us

(Me and my shadow)
Closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook

(Strolling down the avenue, oh)
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

(Me and my shadow)
Closer than smog is to all of L.A.
Closer than Ricky to confessing he's gay

Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

And when it's sleeping time that's when we rise
We start to swing, oh, you think you're so jazz, you
Our clocks don't chime, what a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding, Happy New Year

(Me and my shadow)
And now to repeat what I said at the start
You'll need a large crowbar to break us apart

We're alone but far from blue
Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll hit a few late spots and then a few more
We'll start out at Stringy's and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow, wow, whee for my shadow and me

Can we do that again? No, I'm too tired
Oh, please Rob, no, I'm swung out
I'll give you some money, I don't need money
What about a cup of tea? I'm not thirsty
I won't tell anyone you're gay

Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll hit a few late spots and then a few more
We'll start out at Stringy's and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow, wow, whee for my shadow and me
