Success - Graham Parker

    The dreams and hopes of men are powered by addiction
    And who am I to say that this is an affliction
    When everybody gets suckered in and lives their lives like fiction
    Writing their own stories of success

    They say they want you for your colourful evocation
    The way you turn a cliche into a sensation
    But all they ever wanted was that same vibration
    The one that shimmers round success

    Success success success success
    Success success success success
    All you ever need... success

    You can't be happy while some one else has a fistful
    They glow from TV screens healthy strong and fiscal
    And everybody slaps their back while you're alone with a wristful
    Jerking to the rhythm of success

    [Repeat Chorus]
