New Model Army

New Model Army - Great Expectations

rate me

When I was young I dreamed and dreamed

About all the things that I was going to be

A handsome pop star on the screen or captain of the England team

A brave explorer holding court or a really famous astronaut

They said "Son, it could all be yours, you just work hard and pay your dues

Don't be content with what you've got, there's always more that you can want

Everybody's on the make - that's what made this country great"

Chorus:So all I wanted in the end

Was world domination and a whole lot of money to spend

Everything I touch, everything I see, fame and fortune, immortality

Well that's not much to ask, it's really not

It's not much to ask, just the same as anybody else

So welcome to the free for all, the smash and grab, the freeloaders ball

Where everything is here for us if we scream, shout, make a fuss

There's nothing that we can't afford with a poisoned tongue and a sharpened sword

Spoilt children in a row - no one dares to tell them "no"

Chorus:

So all I wanted in the end

Was world domination and a whole lot of money to spend

A little place to call my home, like a planet that was all my own

Well that's not much to ask, it's really not

It's not much to ask, just the same as anybody else

So in every heart there's a broken dream, a shattered cause, a might have been

In every eye there's a secret tear, in every heart there's a secret fear

That this is it, done, complete. Resign yourself to your defeat

The bitterness behind the show - that's where spoilt children go
