Lyrics:Aimed at the 'Nonsuch' sessions, but for some reason I
never gave Colin and Dave the demo.
Perhaps it was too
close a cousin of 'Blue Overall'. A touch of the

autobiographicals going on here.''

Difficult age
You're just fourteen
And
you're not friends with your body
Painfully thin
Look at your skin
Play with yourself
for a hobby

How can they love a man who does that to himself?

Difficult
age
Turn on the page
Have that wee drink in the meantime

Difficult age
Now
you're eighteen
Here's all the freedoms you wanted
All the best clothes
A looker who
goes
The size of your wage packet flaunted

How can they love a man who does that to
himself?

Difficult age
Turn on the page
And have that wee drink in the
meantime

Difficult age
He's twenty-nine
Thirty just lurks 'round the
corner
Settled for life
Nice kids and wife
Pull out a plum like Jack
Horner

Difficult age
Turn on the page
Have that wee drink in the
meantime

Difficult age
Now thirty-eight
And you're not friends with your
body
Wish you were thin
Look at your skin
Wasting yourself for a hobby

How
can they love a man who does that to himself
