Lyrics

It's time the tale were told Of how you took a child And you made him old It's time the tale were told Of how you took a child And you made him old You made him old

Reel around the fountain Slap me on the patio I'll take it now

Oh. fifteen minutes with you Well, I wouldn't say no Oh, people said that you were virtually dead And they were so wrong

Fifteen minutes with you Oh, well, I wouldn't say no Oh, people said that you were easily led And they were half-right Oh, they, oh, they were half-right, oh

It's time the tale were told Of how you took a child And you made him old It's time that the tale were told Of how you took a child And you made him old You made him old

Oh, reel around the fountain Slap me on the patio I'll take it now Ah, oh

Fifteen minutes with you Oh, I wouldn't say no Oh, people see no worth in you Oh, but I do. Fifteen minutes with you Oh, I wouldn't say no Oh, people see no worth in you I do Oh, I, oh, I do Oh

I dreamt about you last night And I fell out of bed twice You can pin and mount me like a butterfly But take me to the haven of your bed Was something that you never said Two lumps, please You're the bee's knees But so am I

Oh, meet me at the fountain Shove me on the patio I'll take it slowly

Oh Fifteen minutes with you Oh, I wouldn't say no Oh, people see no worth in you Oh, but I do Fifteen minutes with you Oh, I wouldn't say no Oh, people see no worth in you I do Oh, I, I do Oh, I do Oh, I do Oh, I do
