Written for the 'Bridget Jones' generation of frustrated 30-somethings stuck at their desks and realising that their life is just that little bit flat... ;-)

lyrics

Sha La La La in My Life.

And I know where she goes,
In her wildest dreams
Straight off to Barbados
A Chocolate Suntan –
and a Factor Twelve ice cream…

She said, “What can you do for me?
Because I been so unhappy,
I gotta feelin’ somethin’ ain’t quite right…
I need a little Sha La La La in my life.”

“All I got’s the office scene,
Droolin’ over ‘Hello’ Magazine,
Won’t someone make me over overnight?
And put a little Sha La La La in my life.”
I want a little Sha La La La in my life.
I need a little Sha La La La La in my life.

“I’m missin’ all the Fancy Do’s,
No wonder I got the blues
I wanna be a Social Satellite
I want a little Sha La La La in my life.”

“I thought I’d have some diamond rings by now,
And lots of other pretty things somehow
And somewhere I can park my sexual drive
I need a little Sha La La La in my life.”
I want a little Sha La La La in my life.
I need a little Sha La La La La in my life.

Bridge:
“I don’t know how I’m gonna survive
My expectations run in overdrive
C’mon an’ make me feel alive…(tonight)
An’ put a little Sha La La La La La
La La La La in my life.”

“Won’t someone take me out to dine?
On a Candle-lit-Table-Beneath-a-Full-Moon-Shine?
I’m working up a healthy appetite
So put a little Sha La La La in my life.”

She said “Ah yi ai ee yi ee yi ah!”

She said, “What can you do for me?
I been so damned lonely
This ain’t no way to spend a Friday night
I need a little Sha La La La in my life.”

I want a little Sha La La La La La
La La La La in my life.

I want a little Sha La La La in my life.
I need a little Sha La La La in my life.
I want a little Sha La La La La in my life.
