spoken

(oh
hello john
would you like some
profiteroles?)

(sandy
come right in
the willows are waiting
for you)

verse one

it seems so stupid of the night
to run around without her clothes on
and though i do forget her name
she's not so beautiful in the moonlight?

it's just so english of us all
to not be standing on the mountain
for a mountain offers chance
like the smiles on a rainbow

chorus

oh la la la
you're not my thumb
so don't put my clothes on

oh god i'm sick
just take me home
i can't stand the sight of any of you

verse two


it seems so foolish of the wind
to swan about like it's no duty
the best gesture i can make
is offer spring to you on wednesday

it's just so english of us all
to not be wearing other's trousers
for other's trousers aren't so warm
especially in the british summer rain

chorus

oh la la la
you're not my mum
so don't put my coat on

oh i'm so sick
i'm going to hurl
where is tuesday?

organ solo

middle eight


hello. hello. hello. hello. hello.

hello.

verse three

damn it martha where's my gown
i cannot stand the chilly platform
your eyelids flutter and it says
'we were born to eat eachothers' omelettes'

it's just so english of us all
to suffer silently at christmas
i refuse to continue.
