Lyrics

Jonny and Robbie [Robbie Williams]
What you talking like that for, you're from Stoke! [Jonathan Wilkes]
I dunno but I can't stop here pally [Robbie Williams]

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall [Jonathan Wilkes]
Like the seashore clings to the sea [Robbie Williams]
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow [Jonathan Wilkes]
You'll never get rid of me [Robbie Williams]
Let all the others fight and fuss [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
Whatever happens, we've got us [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]

Me and my shadow [Robbie Williams]
We're closer than pages that stick in a book [Jonathan Wilkes]
We're closer than ripples that flow in a brook [Jonathan Wilkes]
Strolling down the avenue [Robbie Williams]
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look [Jonathan Wilkes]
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza [Jonathan Wilkes]

Me and my shadow [Jonathan Wilkes]
Closer than smog to all of L.A. [Robbie Williams]
We're closer than Ricky to confessing he's gay [Robbie Williams]
Not a soul can bust this team in two [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
We stick together like glue [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]

And it's sleeping time [Robbie Williams]
That's when we rise [Jonathan Wilkes]
We start to swing [Robbie Williams]
Hohohoho, you think you're so just you [Jonathan Wilkes]
Hahaha our clocks don't chime [Robbie Williams]
What a surprise [Jonathan Wilkes]
They ring-a-ding-ding [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
Happy New Year [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]

Me and my shadow [Jonathan Wilkes]
And now to repeat what I said at the start [Robbie Williams]
They need a large crowbar to break us apart [Robbie Williams]
We're alone but far from blue [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]

Before we get finished we'll make the town roar [Robbie Williams]
We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more [Jonathan Wilkes]
We'll start off at Stringy's and maybe grand show [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
Life is gonna be wee-woo-whee! [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
For my shadow and me [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]

[Spoken:] Can we do that again [Jonathan Wilkes]
No I'm too tired [Robbie Williams]
Oh please Rob [Jonathan Wilkes]
No I'm swung out [Robbie Williams]
Oh come on, I'll give you some money [Jonathan Wilkes]
I don't need money [Robbie Williams]
What about a cup of tea [Jonathan Wilkes]
Not thirsty [Robbie Williams]
I won't tell anyone you're gay [Jonathan Wilkes]
Hahaha... fuck! [Robbie Williams]

Before we get finished we'll make the town roar [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
We'll start off at Stringy's and maybe grand show [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
Life is gonna be wee-woo-whee![Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
For my shadow and me [Robbie Williams & Jonathan Wilkes]
