Man Out Of Time

Man Out Of Time

 Oooh la la la la la la la la

I’m not afraid of Top of the Pops
I’m not afraid of you
I’m just a man a man out of time
That time is 1972

Cause if you knew then what you know now
What would you change, anything?
Glitter and stars spiders from Mars
And the untimely death of a King

Ooh

I’m not afraid of Noggin the Nog
Or of The Singing Ringing Tree
I’m just a man a man out of time
That time is 1973

Cause if you knew then
What you know now
What would you change anything?
Reservoir high reach for the sky teaching the world to sing

Out of tune in the pub
Whilst falling in love
With the girl of your dreams
And the Likely Lads theme it’s everywhere

Oooh la la la la la la la la

I’m not afraid to cheat in exams
I’m not afraid of the law
I’m just a man a man out of time
That time is 1974

I met your mother back in the day
And she took me home for the night
I saw her again just the other week
And she gave me terrible fright

Ooh

I’m not afraid of Lyndsey De Paul
Or of the Seven Seas of Rhye
I’m just a man a man out of time
That time is 1975

Richard Stilgoe Donny and Marie
Bri-nylon sheets and a chain-mail bikini
Is this how you wanna get your kicks
I said roll on1976

And the punks in the park
Scare the children after dark
And the Teds beat em up
For a laugh

La la la la la la la la

I’m a man out of time…
