lyrics

Mr Charisma pudding and pie
kissed all the girls until
he made himself cry
and you think i don't understand
you think i don't see
you're in love with another man

but he can't help you now
so if you've got a head 
hold it up and be proud
cause everything clever
has already been said
so there's nothing 
that he can say now

cause for once we are winning
the world's jumping on 
cause the tables are spinning
so put away your cigars
and that cognac and
run along with the rest i'll be
watching your back

and they're only
sticks and stones
but i'm not gonna lie 
they do break your bones
leave then bruised
leave them sore
but its not over yet
because i can throw more

so they can't hurt you now
and if you've got a head 
hold it up and be proud
cause everything
hurtful has already been said
so there's nothing
that they can say now

you could file yourself a failure
for not turning out to be
'man the tool maker'
or leave it to me
and the chimpanzees
we are our own makers
and we thrive off hard labour
cause they're only
sticks and stones
until they're spears 
and they're bridges
they're fences and homes
so we could run and jump
from our high expectations
or just grow a bit taller
with each new generation

still they can't help you now
so if you've got a head 
hold it up and be proud
cause everything clever
has already been said
so there's nothing 
that they can say now
