The Streets
Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way
[Intro: Leo The Lion]
Yeah, yeah
Uh
Yeah
Ooh, yeah
Ooh, yeah

[Verse 1: Mike Skinner]
I should be standing at the bar waving a ten pound note around
But I sit here on the sofa at my girl's house
I should be chatting sh*t as I'm nubbing out another snout
But I'll roach a spliff watching the TV for now
I should be watching the fruit machines for which one will pay out
But I sit on the sofa at my girl's, anyhow
I should be legging it from a cab like a mad little lout
But I'll roach a spliff watching the TV, throughout

[Chorus: Leo The Lion]
I know I never tell her but every single day, man
I'm always thinking loads about her
She's the best thing that ever happened to me and
I don't know what I'd do without her

[Verse 2: Mike Skinner & Leo The Lion]
I should actually go out and about, flip some beer mats
Instead of sitting here at my girl's gaff (Yeah, yeah)
'Cause all I seem to do is sit in this habitat
Just roaching a spliff, watching the TV and that
And the TV at my house is a bit broken on the back
So I use my girl's TV to watch the match (Oh)
Yeah, I might head out later to get off this beaten track
Of watching the TV, roaching up, on the same old mat

[Chorus: Leo The Lion]
I know I never tell her but every single day, man
I'm always thinking loads about her
She's the best thing that ever happened to me and
I don't know what I'd do without her

[Verse 3: Mike Skinner & Leo The Lion]
But on second thoughts, I won't do shots
No, I think I will sit on the sofa and eat my TV meal
I would actually much prefer to just sit here and chill (Ooh)
Roaching a spliff watching EastEnders or The Bill (Oh)
'Cause basically I love her, and I love being here still
And I love sitting on the sofa with my girl, for real (Yeah)
I don't want to knock my mates
But there, it's the same old drill
Roaching a spliff, watching the TV is my will (Ooh)
[Chorus: Leo The Lion]
I know I never tell her but every single day, man (Oh, oh, oh)
I'm always thinking loads about her (Oh, oh)
She's the best thing that ever happened to me and
I don't know what I'd do without her (Oh, babe)

[Verse 4: Mike Skinner & Leo The Lion]
No, f**k that
I might ask my mates where they'll be drinking
From the sofa, giving them a ding
Tell 'em I will go threes on that gram later on this evening (Yeah)
Instead of roaching a spliff, watching the TV again
And then go out, whilst back at hers, she does her ting
Sitting on the sofa at her end
But as I watch the big screen, I know I will quite miss
Me and her roaching a spliff (Oh yeah), watching the TV again

[Chorus: Leo The Lion & Mike Skinner]
I know I never tell her but every single day, man
I'm always thinking loads about her (Oh yeah)
(That's exactly what I'm talking about)
She's the best thing that ever happened to me
(I wouldn't have it any other way)
And I don't know what I'd do without her (Oh)
(I'll tell you this)
I know I never tell her
(There's a whole world out there)
But every single day, man
(A whole world)
I'm always thinking loads about her
(But do I give a–?)
She's the best thing that ever happened to me
(D'you know what I mean?)
And I don't know what I'd do without her
(There's a whole world out there)
[Outro: Leo The Lion]
I've got one packet of Rizla over there
But it's nearly run out
I've got bits of cigarette all over the place, mm-mm
The clipper needs a shake
The ashtray needs emptying
But I wouldn't have it any other way
I said, I wouldn't have it any other way
I said, I wouldn't have it any other way
Ooh, ooh, ooh
No, I wouldn't, no, I wouldn't
I wouldn't have it any other way
I said, the ashtray needs emptying
I said, the clipper needs a shake
But I wouldn't have it any other way
I did the same things as yesterday
Oh, oh, oh, I...
Oh, I wouldn't have it any other way
