 I'm a substitute for another guy, I look pretty tall but my heels are high, the simple 
you see are all complicated I look pretty young but I'm just back-dated, yeah


Chorus:  Intro riff played over this section

Substitute your lies for fact, I see right though your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black, My fine looking suit is really made out of sack

Verse 2
I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east facing south

Bridge
And no you dare to look me in the eye, Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem, you won't try, To Work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

Chorus
Substitute me for him, Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mum At least I'll get my washing done

Solo:
Unison bends 8 times  or just play D & G chords

Bridge:

But I'm a substitute for another guy, I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young but I'm just back-dated, yeah
