Don't normally try this as can't commit the necessary attention span during working day, but doesn't the line "what's it all about" feature in "I don't know how to love him" from Jesus Christ Superstar? Don't suppose that's the one you meant, scran? Or another one - "Top of the World", Van Halen?

Surely lyrics 6 is Alfie, by Shirley Bassey?

(Scran, check your PM's)
