Here's an attempt to transcribe this song.  If anyone has any additions, 
please comment.  Pete said this was recorded by The Who around the time of 
Who's Next, but not quite this way.  It didn't make the cut for the album.

Ambition

You say I’m matched by ? clothes?
Well mister no one knows
That my dreams are rolled up in a big cigar
You say that all the dance is done
But man, it was a lot of fun
But I mean to come home in a big white car
Ambition
I can take all the good good dishin?
I’m going to get me a free admission
Ambition
I’ll arrive
Even if I get pushed around
Now welcome my fuckin? sound
Until they open up the big front door
I survived
He’ll welcome me in his arms
Carry me to the stars
I will even know
I dunno what I’m knockin for
Ambition
I can take all the the good good dishin
Ambition
I’m going to get me a free admission
I’m lazy
But it gives me more time to think
I want idle hours to sit and drink
Which creates my present condition
Supplies me with ? ammunition
Gonna pass out from my own volition
I’ve got so much ?

Ambition
I can take all the good good dishin
I’m going to get me a free admission
Got ambition


Pete Townshend 1972
