lyrics

I left the city but I kept my band
I never seen a needle take a man
I spent a weekend in the country before
I took a little but I wanted more
I drew a deep breath and tried to shout
But nothing much came out

And then we played cos we had time to kill
You made me feel just like a Coup-Deville
I closed the windows and locked the doors
You took a little but you wanted more
I drew a deep breath and tried to shout
But nothing much came out

I know I told you that I'd make you money
And it's just not funny that i lost it all by myself
I know I told you that I'd make you money
But I still cannot believe you don't want anybody else

What you going to do when they come back for you
Your mouths' been running off so fast but you don't know what to do

I know I told you that I'd make you money
And it's just not funny that i lost it all by myself
I know I told you that I'd make you money
But I still cannot believe you don't want anybody else
And did I tell you that you make me laugh
And you're the best I've had
And I just need you all to myself
All the time we've ever spent apart
You know it did me in
So don't lets start
