Charlie

Don’t look back¬†‘cos familiar will kill ya
I’ve seen it happen too many times too many times too many times

Life begins at a run down railway station
The 10:15 on the London line, the London line, the London line

Just take a look at Charlie
Carries a dream for all of us
Flying the flag for northerners
Council estate to Hollywood

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would

Don’t think twice, go and find your future
You know that fortune favours the brave, favours the brave, favours the brave

Find your way cos no one will find it for you
Another summer it came and went it came and went it came and went

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would

Fix your grip, don’t let it slip
Gotta fight for this, this is it
(x4)

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would
