It’s no good making them if you never keep them,
It’s like going in circles, treading water and all that.
But we always make New Year promises,
And everybody knows we’ve forgotten them by next week.
It’s some sort of game you play isn’t it,
Say things, make things up
Knowing you’ll never honour a single one.
Well yes, it’s the tradition of welcoming the New Year
Resolving to make yourself a better person
At least that’s the intention
Until life takes over
Then it’s every man for himself.
Yes, I’m not playing this year.
