lyrics

So listen, eh, I don't know much about life
But I know my own mind, I know the life that I like
And listen, here the grass is as green as you like
Let's take a walk on the mild side

So listen, eh, let's get a couple things right
I like to do what I like, and I'm an innocent type
I like to stay inside and that's my only real vice
I don't like to sniff whites, drink pints, and start fights
I'm a mild child, I don't get too crazy
Just watching game shows, the odd soap, documentaries
Feeling hazy, getting stupid and lazy
Might not float your boat but I ain't broke so don't try to change me

(Are you ready?
Roll steady!)

So listen, eh, I don't know much about life
But I know my own mind, I know the life that I like
And listen, here the grass is as green as you like
Let's take a walk on the mild side

So listen, don't invite me out to a place
It ain't you babe, it's me, I see through the charade
It's how they get ya, full time, working late
Just to go and do what? Have a life that you hate?
Now listen up, I'd rather not have my whole life on hold
Work shifts for some prick and do what I'm told
'Cause if you ain't so into sex then money loses its shine
Ain't much I'm selling so ain't much to buy

(The grass is always green
The other side is a lie)

So listen, eh, I don't know much about life
But I know my own mind, I know the life that I like
And listen, here the grass is as green as you like
Let's take a walk on the mild side
And listen, eh, I'm pretty old and I'm wise
Ain't much that I haven't tried, I'm known to give good advice
And listen, I've been around the block a few fucking times
Time for a walk on the mild side

Let's take a walk on the mild side
Let's take a walk on the mild side

So listen, I'm a girl who likes to zone out
I don't like organised fun and standing out in a crowd
And listen, I'm a bitch who likes to pass out
But imma do it at home, it ain't so dangerous now
And listen, I'm a girl who lives inside books
And every kind of music, and a signature look
And listen, it ain't broke so put your toolbox away
When I need a fucking spanner imma call you OK?

(And listen babe, if you need an escape
From your day to day, just take my hand, I'm gonna show you the way)

So listen, eh, I don't know much about life
But I know my own mind, I know the life that I like
And listen, here the grass is as green as you like
Let's take a walk on the mild side
So listen, eh, I don't know much about life
But I know this is my time and it is passing me by
So listen, no time to play a part that someone else writes
Let's take a walk on the mild side

Let's take a walk on the mild side
Let's take a walk on the mild side
