Lyrics

Let me tell you about two young lovers that lived on the coast
She was such a pretty thing, and man what a host
Come evenin’ time she sets the table for four
Some friends are coming round tonight
He’s out on the town, He’s tryin’ to score

Woke up early this morning something’s on his mind
Cursing the night before, breakfast at nine
She felt him restless oh all through the night
She senses something’s wrong with him
She doesn’t want to pry, she just wants to know why

Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh no, not you again

Don’t own no swimming pool, not even a colour TV
He work awful hard some days and she let’s him be
Things ain’t looking good for them, no love no more
Some friends are coming round tonight
He’s out on the town, knocking on the wrong door

Oh, oh, oh, oh-oh no, not you again

[Guy McDonough / Australian Crawl]
