A rainy afternoon
Spent in the warmest room
She lay before me and said
Yes it's true that I have seen some naked men

As she made for the door
Leaving me on the floor
I wish I'd done biology
For an urge within me wanted to do it then

And here she comes again
And I'm sitting on my hands
And she sings to me that siren song
Here she comes again and I'm biting my lip
But it won't be long

As Brother Barry said
As he married Marion
The wife has three great attributes
Intelligence, a Swiss army knife and charm

But that's not enough sometimes
And she did speak her mind
And told them all that she believed
The only way to disarm is to disarm

I know people whose idea of fun
Is throwing stones in the river in the afternoon sun
Oh let me be as free as them
Don't let her pass this way again

Though you cannot be blamed
But I've become inflamed
With thoughts of lust and thoughts of power
Thoughts of love and thoughts of Chairman Mao

We have such little time
At your place or mine
I can't wait till we take our blood tests
Oh baby let's take our blood tests now
