Songs of Love

Original Artist: Neil Hannon

Pale, pubescent beasts,
Roam through the streets,
And coffee-shops.
Their prey,
Gather in herds,
Of stiff knee-length skirts,
And white ankle-socks.
But while they search for a mate
My type hibernate,
In bedrooms above,
Composing their songs of love.

Young, uniform minds,
In uniform lines,
And uniform ties.
Run round,
With trousers on fire,
And signs of desire,
They cannot disguise.
While I,
Try to find words,
As light as the birds,
That circle above.
To put in my songs of love.

Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice.
Fortune depends on the tone of your voice.

So sing,
While you have time,
Let the sun shine,
Down from above.
And fill you with songs of love.

Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice.
Fortune depends on the tone of your voice.

So sing,
While we still can,
While the sun hangs,
High up above.
Wonderful songs of love.
Beautiful songs of love.
Beautiful songs of love.
