Lyrics

Everything was running nicely
Best friends come and go
Anyone can see your the best trained pet on show

Hello all you beautiful creatures
You don’t know who the hell they are
I bet you never thought your luck would run this far

You’re the one most likely
To be seen and heard and hanging around
20 years are gone and you are out of the town again

You’re the last living legend
To be lost in love and out of it again
She’d never go back but you keep going back again

It was easy to like you
We used to have a drink or two
You made me feel like I was one of the chosen few

Anyone could see you are trying
You know how to get things done
You’re sweating blood I know but it looks like fun

You’re the one most likely
To be seen and heard at 7AM
20 years are gone and you are out of the town again

You’re the last living legend
To be hanging around in the end
She’d never go back but you keep going back again

You’ve got your brand new head on show
You feed it well and watch it grow
You’re looking good and ready to go

You’re the one most likely
To get lost in love and out of it again
20 years are gone and you are out of the town again

You’re the last living legend
To be hanging around in the end
She’d never go back but you keep going back again

You’re the one most likely
To get seen and heard at 7AM
20 years are gone and you are out of the town again

You’re the last living legend
