Lyrics

You must be wondering how
The boy next door turned out
Have a care, but don't stare
Because he's still there lamenting:
    "Policewomen, policemen, silly women,
    Taxmen - uniformed whores
    They who wish to hurt you
    Work within the law
    This world is full
    So full of crashing bores
    And I must be one
    'Cause no one ever turns to me to say
    'Take me in your arms
    Take me in your arms and love me' "

You must be wondering how
The boy next door turned out
Have a care, and say a prayer
Because he's still there lamenting:
    "Policewomen, policemen, silly women,
    Taxmen - uniformed whores
    Educated criminals
    Work within the law
    This world is full
    So full of crashing bores
    And I must be one
    'Cause no one ever turns to me to say
    'Take me in your arms
    Take me in your arms and love me
    And love me' "

What really lies beyond the constraints of my mind?
Could it be the sea with Fate mooning back at me?
No, it's just more lock-jawed pop stars
Thicker than pig-shit - nothing to convey
So scared to show intelligence
It might smear their lovely career

This world, I am afraid
Is designed for crashing bores
I am not one, I am not one
You don't understand
You don't understand
And yet you can take me in your arms and love me
Love me and love me
Take me in your arms and love me
Love me, love me
Take me in your arms and love me
Take me in your arms and love me
Would you do, would you do, what you should do?
