Lyrics

Received a letter just the other day Don't seem they wanna know you no more They've laid it down, given you their score Within the first two lines it bluntly read "You're not to come and see us no more Keep away from our door Don't come 'round here no more What on earth did you do that for?" Our aunt, she don't wanna know, she says "What will the neighbours think, they'll think We don't, that's what they'll think, we don't" But I will, cause I know they think I don't Our uncle, he don't wanna know, he says "We are a disgrace to the human race", he says "How can you show your face When you're a disgrace to the human race?" No commitment, you're an embarrassment Yes, an embarrassment, a living endorsement The intention that you have booked Was an intention that was overlooked They say, "Stay away Don't want you home today Keep away from our door Don't come 'round here no more" Our dad don't wanna know, he says "This is a serious matter Too late to reconsider No one's gonna wanna know ya" Our mum, she don't wanna know, she says "I'm feelin' twice as old", she says "Thought she had a head on her shoulder Cause I'm feelin' twice as older I'm feelin' twice as older" You're an embarrassment
