As much as I would like to
I'll never set the world alight

My legacy is an unheard scream into a digital void
Late night vagrant
Best to look away for your own sake

Who wants to pay for a digital download?
& it's hard to even get an FM foothold
Perhaps my songs are too throwaway
Even for a throwaway world

Where's my Ivor Novello?

In my mind I'm Scott Walker
And my weird doom gives you a lift
In my mind I'm Lee Hazlewood
It comes out all wrong but you get my drift

No idea what I'm doing but I don't let it stop me
I'll leave a sizeable back catalogue
But I'll leave no money

Where's my Ivor Novello?

Maybe when I'm dead
My kids will be impressed
But for now I'm not weird enough for the weirdos
& not straight enough for the rest
Am I boring? Who cares!
I'm not even at my best!
But I keep on
So where's my Ivor Novello?
I said, where's my Ivor Novello?
