I'd argue with 12. It was a great rock and roll song. Not punk.

If you want to be picky, HMWYRS is a funk tune, certainly not rock & roll. And Ian Dury definitely part of the New Wave

I'll never wrest that crown from your ageing, bony old fingers.

I think a lot of songs during the punk/new wave era can be mistaken for falling under that category but that'd be wrong.

White man In Hammermith Palais - The Clash
Promises (woah oh) - The Buzzcocks
I'm Stranded - The Saints
Love Song - The Damned
Pump It Up - Elvis Costello
Life Begins at the Hop - XTC
Shot By both Sides - Magazine
California Uber Alles - Dead Kennedy's
Burn my Eye - Radio Birdman
Owe us a Living - Crass

Could easily come up with a second list and decide it was my top 10, not this one.
