I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
I went up to the country park and hung around
Till after dark, till the girls got home, till the girls got home

Did I tell you 'bout the one I know, she's on the rag?
And she spent the summer day inside her sleeping bag
Yeah, she spent the summer day inside until it's time
To go to work and she works all night, yeah, the girl's alright

The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
And it's like your holidays whenever you go 'round
We always have a laugh and then we all get in
The bath to save on the leccy bill me and Jo, and Phil

I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys around the way, I had to go to work
I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys down in the caf', I had to catch a bus

Jo was short of cash, I had to give her some
But I didn't really mind 'cause I was fit for once
So we paid the lucky bill and got the shopping
And we still had some for the cinema so we all went out

She asked me, "Do I need to lose a bit of weight?"
And I said, "Oh, don't be stupid 'cause you're looking great"
And I call her String Bean Jean because the label on
Her jeans says, 'Seven to eight years old', well, that's pretty small

Seven to eight years old, oh, that's pretty small
Seven to eight years old, that's pretty small
Seven to eight years old

I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys around the way, I had to go to work
I had to leave them in the morning
I left the keys down in the caf', I had to catch a bus
