Lyrics

I thought I did good
I got my name on telly
sent in my letter
they sent a badge to me

I was just a kid
but I felt neater
they showed my idea
on blue peter
it was me and a hundred other kids, yeah
but we earned our badges, yes we did, yeah
we thought we were famous, thought we'd made the scene
then they gave another badge to the freakin' queen
I thought I was good
I was a special breed
I got a big head
they had planted a seed
I went to med school
I felt cocksure
I fueled my ego
with exposure
it was me and a hundred other kids, yeah
but we earned our badges, yes we did, yeah
we thought we were famous, thought we'd made the scene
then they gave another badge to the freakin' queen
a gold blue peter badge for the freakin' queen
a gold blue peter badge for the freakin' queen
