Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

.

I am a dull and simple lad

Can not tell water from champagne

And I have never met the queen

And I wish I could have all that he has got

I wish I could be like David Watts

.

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

.

And when I lie on my pillow at night

I dream I could fight like David Watts

Lead the school team to victory

And take my exams and pass the lot

.

(Wish I could be)

Wish I could be like David Watts

(Wish I could be)

Wish I could be like David Watts

(Wish I could be)

Conduct my life like David Watts

(Wish I could be)

I wish I could be like David Watts

.

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

.

He is the head boy at the school

He is the captain of the team

He is so gay and fancy free

And I wish all his money belonged to me

I wish I could be like David Watts

.

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

.

And all the girls in the neighborhood

Try to go out with David Watts

They try their best but can't succeed

For he is of pure and noble breed

.

Wish I could be like

Wish I could be like

Wish I could be like

.

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

[repeat]
