{Intro} 
  (eight times) 
Someone had to tell you, 
Might as well it be me. 
You've been fooling no-one, 
If you only could see. 
Do you understand ? 
You've got quite a problem, 
Lost your job you know why 
But you can't admit, 
So full of it you might die. 
Do you understand? 
You can't understand 
Just keep your head in the sand. 
Yeah 
Teenage alcoholic 
Grew too old to be fun. 
Just another loser 
Ain't no use to no-one. 
You can't understand. 
You can't understand. 
Give yourself excuses, 
Just as boozers all do. 
Why invent a reason ? 
No-one sees it like you 
Do you understand? 
Do you understand? 
You've got your head in the sand 
Your head in the sand 
Head in the sand 
  (four times) 
  (12 times) 
(Have another. And another, and another ...) 
Everything is hopeless, 
Drink to cope - it don't help. 
What's it take to make you 
Wide awake to yourself? 
To yourself? 
To yourself? 
Your head's in the - (buried deep below) 
Your head's in the - (you don't wanna know) 
Your head's in the - (you've got feet of clay) 
Your head's in the - (drink your tears away)
