One, two, three, four

I was born in the north of England
I was raised in a working town
I broke all the rules when I went to school
But the teacher's couldn't pin me down

I tried to make my parents proud
By adapting the social powers
Oh, pigs will fly and the Earth will fry
When they get me doing honest hours

Snookeroo, Snookeroo, daddy's going on the booze
Mother used to cut my hair and sister used to make the news
Well, it was two rooms up and two rooms down
We were sentenced by the wrecking crane
Oh, I was born on the eve of Halloween
And Snookeroo, Snookeroo, Snookeroo's my name

I need someone to cook for me
And turn me lose at night
I could spend my life with a factory girl
'Cause a factory girl's my type

I hear them gossip on the street
Most of what they say is true
Oh, don't you know that I hear them say
"There goes that lazy, no good Snookeroo"

Snookeroo, Snookeroo, daddy's going on the booze
Mother used to cut my hair and sister used to make the news
Well, it was two rooms up
(Two rooms up)
And two rooms down
(Two rooms down)

We were sentenced by the wrecking crane
Oh, I was born on the eve of Halloween
And Snookeroo, Snookeroo
(Snookeroo)
Snookeroo's my name

Snookeroo, Snookeroo, daddy's going on the booze
Mother used to cut my hair and sister used to make the news
Well, it was two rooms up
(Two rooms up)
And two rooms down
(Two rooms down)

We were sentenced by the wrecking crane
Well, I was born on the eve of Halloween
And Snookeroo, Snookeroo
Snookeroo, Snookeroo, Snookeroo, Snookeroo
Snookeroo's my name, yeah
