Information

Lyrics

Were you and he lovers?

And would you say so if you were? On a forecourt On a Friday Passing my way

Were you and he lovers? And if you were, then say that you were! On a groundsheet Under canvas With your tent-flap Open wide

A note upon his desk: "P.S. Bring Me Home And Have Me!" Leather elbows on a tweed coat - Oh! - Is THAT the best you can do?

So came his reply: "...but on the desk is where I want you!" So I ask (even though I know): Were you and he lovers?
