Attitude

Ray Davies, released on Low Budget, © Davray Music Ltd. 1979

.

You go down the pub

You wear make up

And old dads trousers

Why don't you tidy up

You talk like a docker but you act like a queer

You drink champagne then complain it's too dear

You try so hard not to follow any trends

Then you cry in your beer and say you've got no friends

But is it any wonder that you've got no friends

But it's not the make up

Or the way you dress

It's not your appearance, that they all detest

It's not your manners, that you gotta improve

ooooo--it's your attitude.

.

[Chorus:]

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

.

Take off your head phones

Hear what's going on

You can't live in a time zone

You've gotta move on

But before you get there

There's one thing you've gotta do

Oh change your attitude

It's your attitude

It's your attitude

.

[Chorus:]

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

.

The '80s are here, I know cuz I'm staring right at them

But you're still waiting for 1960 to happen

.

You might have the illness, but you've got the cure

You've got the answer, you will endure

You're the only person that's gonna pull you through

Ooh, with your attitude

.

[Chorus:]

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

.

You gotta learn to be positive, it's your only chance

You mustn't be so defensive, you gotta join in the dance

But it isn't your dancing that you've gotta improve

Ooh, it's your attitude.

.

[Chorus:]

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

Attitude, Oo Oo Oo

Your attitude

.

It's all the music

It's all in your brain

You've used all the old licks

Now it's all gotta change.

Change your attitude

It's your attitude

Attitude
