  • David Watts, The Jam (1978), The Kinks (1967)

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on March 6th, 2011 (All posts by )

    “I am a dull and simple lad
    Cannot tell water from champagne
    And I have never met the queen …”

    Kinks:


     
    Jam:


     
    (I loved the Jam more than life itself, back in my days of imaginary Mod utopia.)

    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

    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-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

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

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

    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

    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 all his money belonged to me
    I wish I could be like David Watts

    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

    And all the girls in the neighborhood
    Try to go out with David Watts
    They try their best but can’t succeed
    For he is of pure and noble breed

    Wish I could be like
    Wish I could be like
    Wish I could be like

    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
    (repeat)

      Enjoyed. And, yes, class envy is as always something to be mocked. And, of course, everyone knows the Kinks are the most covered band ever.

      The Jam. Wow. Take me back to the best time of my life(until I met my wife).

      Thanks for the clip.
