Girl Least Likely

Original version (3:59)

Well, I knew this girl
In secondary school.
All of her teachers
Assumed she was a fool
Because they never heard
A single word from

Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Where you been all this time?

Well, I asked her once
Why she never spoke,
And with a furtive glance
She whispered: “I don’t know.
Maybe it’s because,
Just because I’m

Alison Green”,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Where you been all this time?

Sometimes I think about those days,
I wonder what became of my old friends,
Of my old enemies.
All the hopes and dreams,
Were they realised?
Or were they simply given up on?
Like Alison.

Well, I read somewhere
She’d started a website,
And when she sold the shares,
She found that overnight
She’d become a millionaire.
Congratulations

Alison Green!
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Girl least likely to succeed.
Alison Green,
Where you been all this time?
