Lyrics

From the ice-age to the dole-age There is but one concern I have just discovered:

Some girls are bigger than others Some girls are bigger than others Some girl's mothers are bigger than Other girl's mothers

Some girls are bigger than others Some girls are bigger than others Some girl's mothers are bigger than Other girl's mothers

As Anthony said to Cleopatra As he opened a crate of ale: Oh, I say:

Some girls are bigger than others Some girls are bigger than others Some girl's mothers are bigger than Other girl's mothers

Some girls are bigger than others Some girls are bigger than others Some girl's mothers are bigger than Other girl's mothers

Send me the pillow... The one that you dream on... Send me the pillow... The one that you dream on... And I'll send you mine
