“Randy Scouse Git” (alternate version take 18 vocal) Lyrics

?: One…
?: Eighteen, right?
?: Right.
?: One, two…
Micky: When we do this in the ma—
Peter: A-one, two, seven.

She’s a wonderful lady, and she’s mine, all mine
And there doesn’t seem a way that she won’t come and lose my mind
It’s too easy humming songs to a girl in yellow dress
It’s been a long time since the party, and the room is in a mess

The four kings of E.M.I. are sitting stately on the floor
There are birds out on the sidewalk and a valet at the door
He reminds me of a penguin with few and plastered hair
There’s talcum powder on the letter, and the birthday boy is there

Why don’t you cut your hair?
Why don’t you live up there?
Why don’t you do what I do
See what I feel when I care?

Now they’ve darkened all the windows, and the seats are naugahyde
I’ve been waiting for an hour, I can’t find a place to hide
The being known as Wonder Girl is speaking, I believe
It’s not easy tryin’ to tell her that I shortly have to leave

Why don’t you be like me?
Why don’t you stop and see?
Why don’t you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free?

[break, ad-lib]

Why don’t you be like me?
Why don’t you stop and see?
Why don’t you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free?

(She’s a wonderful lady) Why don’t you cut your hair?
(And she’s mine all mine) Why don’t you be like me?
(She’s a wonderful lady) Why don’t you hate who I hate
(And she’s mine all mine) Kill who I kill to be free?

(The being known as Wonder Girl) Why don’t you cut your hair?
(Is speaking, I believe) Why don’t you live up there?
([???]) Why don’t you hate who I hate
([???]) Kill who I kill to be free?

?: Come listen.
