When people listen to you don't you know it means a lot?
'Cause you've got to work so hard for everything you've got
Can't rest on your laurels now not when you've got none
You'll find yourself in a gutter right back where you came from

Someone told me being in the know is the main thing
We all need the security that belonging brings
Can't stand on your own in these times against all the odds
You'll just fall behind like all the other sods

You slap our backs and pretend you knew about
All the things that we were gonna do
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna do when it's over?

You're on your own now don't you think that it's a shame?
But you're the only one responsible to take the blame
So what ya gonna do when the novelty has gone?
Yeah, what ya gonna do when the novelty has gone?

You slap our backs and pretend you knew about
All the things that we were gonna do
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna do when it's over?

Songwriters
CURTIS, IAN KEVIN / HOOK, PETER / MORRIS, STEPHEN PAUL DAVID / SUMNER, BERNARD
