Soho Cinders - Wishing for the Normal Lyrics

A New Musical
Soho Cinders - Wishing for the Normal Lyrics


Velcro:
Just imagine pouring your cornflakes,
Looking up and someone's there.
Someone you have just spent the night with,
Someone's life you're proud to share.
Haven't put my face on,
Haven't done my hair,
Haven't had to worry, as it's him standing there.

Robbie:
Just imagine out on the dancefloor turning round, and there he is.
It's your man, the one you came in with,
3 years on your hand in his.
Living in a semi,
Maybe have a cat,
Nothing that's too fancy,
Tell me what's wrong with that?

Both:
Wishing for the normal kind of dream,
Nothing too excessive or extreme,
Hoping for the hum-drum,
Is that aiming high,
Others seem to find it, tell me why on earth can't I?
Wishing for the normal kind of dream,
Trouble is they're harder than they seem, Am I too ambitious?
Am I out of touch?
Am I wishing for too much?

Robbie:
Just imagine cooking lasagne,like those adverts on TV

Velcro:
Sitting on a fake leather sofa, babies bouncing on my knee

Robbie:
Living within reason,
Loving when I can,
Feeling like a someone,
Not so sad, also rad.

Both:
Wishing for the normal kind of dream,
Trouble is they're harder than they seem, Am I too ambitious?
Am I out of touch?
Am I wishing for too much?

Velcro:
Just imagine mowing the lawn

Robbie:
Just imagine popping some corn

Velcro:
Just imagine breakfast in bed

Robbie:
Just imagine owning a shed

Velcro:
Just imagine doing the school-run

Robbie:
Going for picnics

Velcro:
Keeping a goldfish

Both:
Wishing, wishing,
Hoping for the hum-drum,
Is that aiming high,
Others seem to find, tell me why-oh-why-oh-why can't I?
Wishing for the normal kind of dream,
Trouble is they're harder than they seem,

Velcro:
Going to a nightclub
Cinemas and such

Robbie:
Eating in a restaurant
Happy to go Dutch

Both:
Am I too ambitious?
Am I out of touch?
Am I wishing for too much?

Robbie:
Just imagine cleaning the Volvo

Velcro:
Just imagine planting a rosebush

Robbie:
Just imagine having a mortgage

Velcro:
Just imagine keeping a goldfish

Robbie:
A goldfish? You saddo...
