London: Singer Amy Winehouse’s first teenage lyrics and notes have been found in a pile of dumped schoolbooks.

The lyrics, notes and diary entries written in 2001 when the "Rehab" singer was just 17, were found among rubbish dumped on a north London street, reports

One red notebook has "Amy`s Songs" written on the cover and contained words including: "I`m digging myself into a hole. These days I`ll just work when once I had so much soul."

Among the notes are some of Amy`s plans for fame and how she would spend her riches.

The 27-year-old singer has battled with drink and drug addiction and now has plans to make her public comeback next month with a string of shows in Brazil.
