A Kick In The Head

Patrick Cannell 2012

Congratulations son,
You are the luminous one.
You've done your mother proud
So take a bow, enjoy it now
'Cause what's that over your soulder?

The girlfriend is impressed,
You are the most and the best.
Although I had some doubts,
You proved me wrong so sing your song
And celebrate before it's too late.

It's the oldest trick in the game
But, when it comes to favour and fame,

You get a kick in the head and you're not even through the door.
You get a kick in the head and you don't even know what for.

The medal's in the post,
You are the best and the most.
See how the critics swoon.
Blow your horn and sign the form,
The small print always gets you in the end.

It's the oldest trick in the book
But one day you will run out of luck

And get a kick in the head when you're not even through the door.
You'll get a kick in the head and you won't even know what for.

It's the oldest trick in the game
But, when it comes to favour and fame,

You get a kick in the head and you're not even through the door.
You get a kick in the head and you don't even know what for.
