Got an earsplitting headache
And it's driving me blind
Can't work any faster
And I'm falling behind;

Mr Gillett's always on at me
Getting hard on my case
Picking me up on
Every little mistake:

Out in the cold again
Out in the cold...

There's a kid down the corridor
Doesn't know what to do
Standing in the passage
Blue eyes on you;

It could be the first time -
What on earth would he say ?
He'll never dare approach you
Now he's walking away:

He's out in the cold again
Out in the cold...

Seems such a long way
Looks like a long way
Feels such a long way
To go...

Stood up on your doorstep
Try the buzzer again
Waiting on the pavement
Like a fool in the rain;

Well you said 7.20
Now it's 9.15
Maybe you're trying to tell me something
I don't wanna believe

Out in the cold again
Out in the cold...
