SWING WHEN YOU'RE WINNING
Me And My Shadow




[Spoken]
Robbie: (American accent) Johnny and Robbie
Jonathan: What you talking like that for, you're from Stoke!
Robbie: I dunno but I can't stop here pally

Jonathan: Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Robbie: Like the seashore clings to the sea
Jonathan: Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
Robbie: You'll never get rid of me
BOTH
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us

Robbie: [Me and my shadow]
Jonathan: We're closer than pages that stick in a book
Jonathan: We're closer than ripples that flow in a brook
Robbie: [Strolling down the avenue]
Jonathan: Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Jonathan: Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

Jonathan: [Me and my shadow]
Robbie: Closer than smog is to all of L.A.
Robbie: Closer than Ricky to confessing he's gay
BOTH
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

Robbie: And when it's sleeping time
Jonathan: That's when we rise
Robbie: We start to swing
Robbie: Our clocks don't chime
Jonathan: What a surprise
BOTH
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!

Jonathan: [Me and my shadow]
Robbie: And now to repeat what I said at the start
Robbie: They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
Both: We're alone but far from blue

Both: Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
Jonathan: We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more
BOTH
We'll start out at Stringy's and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow-wow-whee!
For my shadow and me!

[Spoken]
Jonathon: Can we do that again?
Robbie: No, I'm too tired
Jonathon: Oh, please Rob
Robbie: No, I'm swung out
Jonathon: Oh come on, I'll give you some money
Robbie: I don't need money
Jonathon: What about a cup of tea?
Robbie: Not thirsty
Jonathon: I won't tell anybody you're gay
Robbie: (Laugh) fuck off!

BOTH
Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll hit all the late spots, and then a few more
We'll start out at Stringy's and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow-wow-whee!
For my shadow and me!
