I always have to clean up
I always have to wash up
I always have to see the doc
I always have to go to work

Can’t go to my PC
Can’t watch my TV
Can’t even see my mates

I always have to stay at home
I always have to do things
I always have to eat properly
I always have to drink properly

So no candy for me
No soft drinks for me
Not even alcohol

I always have to rest
I always have to sleep
I always have to wake up
I always have to take a shower
