The young Arthur had friends at school who always had the latest gear. As a looked after kid Arthur had none of these things & could only look on enviously as the latest football kits & fashions were paraded in front of him.



Did you have to show me things I hadn’t got
Did they turn you into something I was not?
A Swindon top today, then its QPR away
Did you really need those things I haven't got?

Well your mum & dad had money, that’s true
Well, me dad couldn’t work, his lungs were black & blue
We’d struggle through the week
In a house so short of heat,
Would I have swapped with you?
That’s one thing I wouldn’t do

I wouldn’t swap anything from then,
When we grew up on that street
But reminisce at the laughs we had,
If we were by chance to meet

Time has flown, things have changed, it’s true
I’m a doer & I made some dreams come true
It’s so easy to say, I was spurred along the way
But as time goes by I learned a thing or two.
