lyrics

We bought a house in Leicester Square,
And on every wall I hung pictures of her.
We had a dog and a blind Eagle,
And every night we satisfied it's lust for people.

We go dancing in the Moon light,
You don't like it too much.
Need the Sun on your skin,
And you're warm to the touch.

You invite me in for the cup of tea,
I say that's an English tradition that's lost on me.

I want to keep her,
I want to keep her,
I want to keep her safe and keep her warm and keep her alive.

We drank until we're blind,
In the eighteen hundreds we were considered civilised.
And all the time I spent under,
Sedation she was with her.

We go dancing in the Sunlight,
But you don't like it too much.
You say the Sun burns your skin,
and you're cold to the touch.

You invite me in for a cup of tea,
I say that's an English tradition that's lost on me.

I want to keep her,
I want to keep her,
I want to keep her safe and keep her warm and keep her alive.
