lyrics

La, la, la, la…

She looked like David Lo Pan,
I knocked her down but then she flipped up again.
I don’t know, exactly where to begin to tell this tale,
I guess I’ll start halfway in.

She’s like a printer refill - too costly,
I’d rather get a new model in - it’s cheaper.
One that isn’t gossamer thin,
I’ll bin her off and I’ll start over again.

I hate you,
but my heart goes..
boom boom boom boom…
I hate you,
you drag me down, down, down.

And she said: La, la, la, la…

Dinner didn’t go very well,
she ordered orphans on a bed of roast lamb.
They screamed like lobster when they entered the pan - she’s evil.
I cup my ears with my hands.

I hate you,
but my heart goes..
boom boom boom boom…
I love you,
you give me, all the respect, that I never had.

Our ship will sail. (x lots)
I’m a white 80’s soulboy and I listen to electroclash.
I’m a lanky urban cowboy and I tend a bar to get some cash.

I love you,
my heart goes..
boom boom boom boom…
I love you,
you give me, all the respect, that I never had.

I saw her there on the stair,
just like that mouse that went clip clop on the stair.
