number one son lyrics – camera obscura

number one son

took a walk in the park for a laugh we drank sparkling wine
oh yeah it was dark trees could not be identified
the girl you were with did she have you on your knees?
i shut my mouth my ears i don’t want to hear you please
now you’re skipping school going to listen to records
wrapped up in mohair dissing your elders
dip a chocolate finger take a sip from my cup
remember what you’re dad said “b*tton your lip”

you’ve got to toughen up for him
he’s the kind who will do you in
i should know that it’s no fun
you will never be no. 1
no. 1 son
god i’ve tried to help but i think i just hinder
ask a better girl could she ever be kinder
love unlike lightning can strike you twice
i don’t know much, but here’s my advice

you’ve got to toughen up for him
he’s the kind who will do you in
i should know that it’s no fun
you will never be no. 1
no. 1 son
