If it's happiness you crave

Won't you look at me today

I'm smiling like the cat with all the cream

There's a swagger in my walk

A grade A in my report

I'm the salmon who made it back upstream

I'm a slightly chipped antique

In a market going cheap

That someday will be worth a thousand pounds

I've shed the walls of my cocoon

Normal service has resumed

There's no need to paint a face on this clown.
