The Lyrics

[Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
what are you at thirty-three?]

There's a story you well know
- prettiest girl years ago
Golden hair and eyes of blue
make-up with a flashy hue
[make-up with a flashy hue]
She was spoiled as girl can be
only fashion did wear she
[only fashion did wear she]

[Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
that is how it used to be]

She was tops, all boys they said
And it sure went to her head
School was never a concern
Not a care, this teenage queen
[Not a care, this teenage queen)]
She did drink and she did smoke
She laid with the football blokes
[She laid with the football blokes]

[Dream on, dream, on, teenage queen
it's exactly what it seems]

When the school was over, she
a gold-digger was to be
She picked up a hockey jock
and soon they were in wedlock
[and soon they were in wedlock]
Thought that jock could offer more
than she could make on her own
[than she could make on her own]

[Dream on, dream on teenage queen,
see you on maternal scheme]

Years did pass and they came soon
and then she was a mom of two
screaming, messy brat
she thought family life's drag
[she thought family life's drag]
She left his jock to have more fun
then married yet another one
[then again yet another one]

[Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
what that came out, we will see]

Past week I saw that teenage queen
sadly turned into has-been
Looks had fainted, charm had gone
years they had their work well done
[years they had their work well done]
She was now a single mum
life on dole, she job had none
[life on dole, she job had none]

[If this story had some point,
you'll see it all at the nearby joint]
