izquierdaNever Was At Allderecha

They say I'm getting older and my hair is turnin' grey
They say I should be slowing down, give it all away
Living like a gypsy doesn't bother me at all
And I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

Now, I could've been a shearer and I could've been a vet
Could've been a lot of things, of this much you can bet
A man can sit there hangin' like a picture on the wall
But I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

Oh, Id sooner be 'has been' than a 'never was at all'
All my life I had a go, really had a ball
If you don't climb the ladder, mate, then you can never fall
And I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

When I look at that old suitcase and I think of how it was
The bad times and the good times, hey, and we did it just because
I know I had to try it and today I'm standing tall
Cause I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

Now, you won't reach the finish line if you don't ever start
You'll never live and you'll never love if you don't have a heart
So don't just sit there whinging mate, it's no damn good at all
And I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

Oh, Id sooner be 'has been' than a 'never was at all'
Give it everything I'd got, really had a ball
If you don't climb the ladder, mate, then you can never fall
And I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'

And I'd sooner be a 'has been' than a 'never was at all'
Oh laydee oh, laydee Oh, laydee
