lyrics

She keeps on talking, but I’m not at home
My mind is reaching back to afternoon on Sunday
Kissing, laughing, running ‘round your bed
So sorry, haven’t listened to a word you said.

C’mon baby, please pick up the phone
I’m otherwise engaged and so are you, I take it.
Heaven knows how far we’d go for love
The Devil knows it, too
He’s sitting on my shoulder…

Flowers for my girl
Diamonds, gold and pearls
Can’t go on without you.
Flowers for my girl
Take me from this world
It’ll turn without me…

Life is easy in an easy chair
An endless flow of TV shows
And chips and beer
Maybe I won’t ever reach the stars
But out the door and down the street’s
A brilliant start, now…

Flowers for my girl
Diamonds, gold and pearls
Can’t go on without you.
Flowers for my girl
Take me from this world
It’ll turn without me…
