I WISH!

Music by Zaz Lyrics by Roger Coghill


A penthouse at the Ritz hotel, I don’t want that

A dresser laden with Chanel, I don’t want that

A red Ferrari fast as hell? Can’t handle that

Papapala  pa Papapala


Slaves hanging on my every word, I don’t need that

A stately home is too absurd, I don’t need that

And Nelson’s Column’s only for the birds. I can’t use that.

Papapala pa Papapala


I wish for love, for joy, for happy times

Your wallet doesn’t ring my chimes

I want my gravestone to be free of crimes


Papalapa pa Papapala


Let go and find my liberty

Forget your bland triviality

And welcome in some real reality.


I’m sick and tired of your pretending lips

I use my fingers when I eat my chips

I speak too loud and always speak my mind

You’ve got to take me as you find

Just as you find.


I hate hypocracy so get that straight

And euphemism’s something that I hate

At all events  from every point f view

That’s how I am,  I simply don’t want you’


Refrain x3:

I wish for love, for joy, for happy times

Your wallet doesn’t ring my chimes

I want my gravestone to be free of crimes

Let go and find my liberty

Forget your bland triviality

And welcome in some real reality.
