Yes I think I do OK I work pretty hard but I still find time to play. And when I hear bad jokes, I laugh anyway Cos it's no skin off my nose and it might make someone's day. But as the nights draw in And the leaves fall And the birds take wing and we turn back the clocks.. And I remember everything. On the longest night of the shortest day The moon out of sight, behind the clouds and rain... I wish that somehow you'd been able to stay For the longest night and the shortest day. Yes I think I doing fine I fill my days and I kill my time I'll meet up with old partners in crime And we'll share a joke and a bottle of win. But as the world falls asleep And the road ahead looks so long and steep And we turn back the clocks To the memories that we all keep.

He was the first to put his arm around another man on Top of the Pops In the same year that the first Pride Parade was outnumbered bythe cops And I'd see his face in all the shops Back when I was ten. As much a starman on the day he died as he was back then. He burst onto our TV screens in '85 - Boy George's eveil twin. Looking both dead and alive - great beauty - trouble deep within And squeezed into my tightest jeans, I'd be swept up in the sound Spinning right round like a record,baby Like a record right round. We're all witing Waiting for the day... I waited hours for his majesty in the pouring prple rain Till he set the lOndon stage on fire - we'll not see his like again. The world has less colour now It's just a sign of the times. So this New Year I'm gonna party like it's 1999
