David Watts
The Jam Lyrics


Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa

I am a dull and simple lad
Cannot tell water from champagne
And I have never met the Queen
And I wish I could have all he has got
Wish I could be like David Watts

Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream I could fight like David Watts
And lead the school team to victory
Take my exams and pass the lot

Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Pump up my life like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)

Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa

He is the head boy at the school
He is the captain of the team
He is so gay and fancy-free
And I wish I could have all he has got
Wish I could be like David Watts

Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa

And all the girls in the neighborhood
Try to go out with David Watts
They try their best but can't succeed
'Cause he is of pure and noble creed

Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)
Wish I could be like David Watts (wish I could be like)

Wish I could be like, wish I could be like
Wish I could be like, wish I could be like (wish, wish)

Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa (David Watts)

Thanks for all the great songs Sir Ray Davies!

wideernie

Probably the best ever cover version.

caleb rush

as a Jam fan this is great, but as a Kinks fan this can't beat the original.

Archie T

Love the kinks and love the jam but I actually think the jams version is better.

C Armstrong

@Catherine Bauer That's just your opinion. But this is still a great cover.
