"Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft"

[ from the album "George Best" (1987) ]

Lyrics

Oh why do you catch my eye then turn away?
I thought we said all the things we had to say
Shaun said he saw you holding hands with your new friend
How does it feel to know you've just won again?

Don't give me that
Because you were seen
Everyone thinks he looks daft but you can have your dream (ohh)

Can I keep that book of yours and maybe this one too?
Oh sure, I'll bring them round tomorrow if that will do
Was it really full? They must have queued there since half past three
Oh I didn't go, was it a good film? Well that's just me

Don't give me that
Because you were seen
Everyone thinks he looks daft but you can have your dream

Oh you can have a dream

Guess who I saw by your old house just the other day
That kid we used to think was mad, but now he looks okay
I think someone's here, look out the window, I can't make out who
Oh I'd love to stay but I've really got so many things to do

Don't give me that
Because you were seen
Everyone thinks he looks daft but you can have your dream

Don't give me that
Because you were seen
Everyone thinks he looks daft but you can have your dream (ohh)
