Sandie Shaw – Reviewing The Situation Lyrics

A man’s got a heart, hasn’t he?
Joking apart, hasn’t he?
And though I’d be the first one to say that I wasn’t a saint
I’m finding it hard to be really as black as they paint

I’m reviewing the situation
Can a fellow be a villain all his life?
All the trials and tribulation
Better settle down and get myself a wife

And a wife would cook and sew for me
And come for me, and go for me
And go for me and nag at me
The fingers she will wag at me
The money she will take from me
A misery, she’ll make from me
I think I’d better think it out again!

A wife you can keep, anyway
I’d rather sleep, anyway
Left without anyone in the world
And I’m starting from now
So how to win friends and to influence people?
So how?

I’m reviewing the situation
I must quickly look up ev’ryone I know

Titled people, with a station
Who can help me make a real impressive show!

I will own a suite at Claridges
And run a fleet of carriages
And wave at all the duchesses
With friendliness, as much as is
Befitting of my new estate
“Good morning to you, Magistrate!”
I think I’d better think it out again

I’m reviewing the situation
I’m a bad ‘un and a bad ‘un I shall stay!
You’ll be seeing no transformation
But it’s wrong to be a rogue in ev’ry way

I don’t want nobody hurt for me
Or made to do the dirt for me
This rotten life is not for me
It’s getting far too hot for me
Don’t want no one to rob for me
But who will find a job for me
There is no in between for me
But who will change the scene for me?
I think I’d better think it out again!
