Lyrics

No one thought that much of you
No one had a clue what you'd go on to do
But by fate or circumstance
We have watched you make an effortless advance

Well I don't make predictions
And I never will
But this much I have learnt

It won't be the golden boy who pulls it off, comes out on top
It won't be the boy most likely to

They all thought the world of me
They assured me my success was guaranteed
But life don't pan out that way
And I have to say I've made my own mistakes

Well our parents and teachers
Like the sound of their own talk
But this they never say

That it won't be the golden boy who pulls it off, comes out on top
It won't be the boy most likely to
It's never the golden boy who makes the most of what he's got
It's never the boy most likely to

Cos if you burn too brightly
And too early on
You'll burn out before too long
And I'm not too proud to tell you
That I need a hand
That's if you can spare the time

It won't be the golden boy who pulls it off, comes out on top
It won't be the boy most likely to
It's always an ordinary boy who only wants to make some noise
It's never the boy most likely to

And I was the boy most likely to
I was the boy most likely to
