"Stories For Boys" (single version)

There's a place
It takes me far away
There's a TV show where I can grow

Sometimes a hero takes me
Sometimes I don't want to know
Hello, hello

There's a picture book with coloured photographs
There's a comic strip that makes me laugh

Sometimes the lady takes me
Sometimes I don't let go
Hello, hello
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys

There's a place I go
It takes me far away
There's a TV show where I can grow

Sometimes a hero takes me
Sometimes I don't let go
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
Stories for boys
