I am a dull and simple lad
Cannot tell water from champagne
And I have never met the queen
And I wish I could have all that he has got
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah
Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah

He is the head boy at the school
He is the captain of the team
He is so gay and fancy free
And I wish I could have all he has got oy
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah
Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream I could fight like David Watts
Lead the school team to victory
Take my exams and pass the lot

(Wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts
(Wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts
(Wish I could be like)
Conduct my life like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
I wish I could be like David Watts
Hey

Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah
Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah
Fa-fa-fa-fah fah fah fah fah

Day-o
(Day-o)
Da-a-a-ay-o
(Da-a-a-ay-o)
Daylight come and me gotta go home

Goodnight
