Hard Luck Story Number 39

This song is by Television Personalities and appears on the album Closer To God (1992).

It happened all so quickly
I was too young
I had too much
Before I'd even begun
I touched the glittering prizes
I had them in my hand
But when I turned it down
You didn't understand
But I'm feeling much better now
I've only just begun
And soon I know my day will come
Don't get me wrong

It's not a hard luck story number 39
Just to hear my song on the radio
Was all I ever hoped
Soon realised, I couldn't cope
You can keep your hits
And your silver discs
I'll stick two fingers to fame
Don't cry for me
It's not a shame
It's not a hard luck story number 39
