Mister Soft
Turn around and force the world
To watch the things you're going through
Oh Mister Soft
Believe everything they tell you
And be dammed if they'll thank you

You paint everything so cruel
Coming on like Mister Cool
Paint your face and shut the gate
No one's coming home till late
Ooh-la

Don't you know?
Life gets tedious enough
Without this extra grudge to bear
You, so slow
Shift your ideas, make your mind up
In a jiffy, let's be fair

We'll all be taking off tonight
Turn off your eyes and shut the light
You're the most, you're so unreal
We'd all be dead without your spiel
Ooh-la
Ooh
Take it

Ooh

Oh Mister Soft
Go to town and bring the dawn in
In the morning on your way
Mister Soft
Put your feet upon the waters
And play Jesus for the day

You begin to hear them mumble
Spot the Starman, rough-and-tumble
Fight the good fight, sling your axe
Watch the speaker lead the packs
Ooh
Here we go again
