Lyrics

Congratulations - you have survived
congratulations - you're still alive
they kicked to kill you
do not forget!
they tried to turn you
into a public target
welcome to this knockabout world
this knockabout world
this knockabout world
this knockabout world
Congratulations - you're still OK
I'd kiss your lips off ... any day
be careful in this knockabout world
this knockabout world
this knockabout world
this knockabout world
And, by the way -
you're OK by me
you're OK by me
with your handsome teeth
you're OK by me!
