Spotlight

Taken from Paul Abbott's critically acclaimed, offbeat drama about the rollercoaster lives and loves of the dysfunctional Gallagher clan, Shameless.  One of the best dramas to hit our screens in the last 10 years.

They say you shouldn't judge books by covers and you shouldn't,
but people with nothing don't have to be nothing you know,
and by the same token people with something aren't necessarily something,
Lots of folk love the queen and the royal family, they think they're nice
they've got all those houses, palaces and estates, s**t loads of cash and jewels;
and yet they still hold out gloved hands for more,
and yet you can go travelling and meet some of the poorest people on earth and they will tear their last piece of bread in half to share with you,
don't presume that someone is nice just because they look nice,
and don't presume someone is a k**bhead just because they look like a k**bhead,
don't care about the way people look but care about what they do,
it's actions not appearances, and if you're not nice one way or another somehow you will burn
