No matter how I try
I just can't say goodbye
No matter what you say
Looks like I'm here to stay

No matter where I go
I don't know if you know
But everywhere we been
I'm kept in quarantine

It's easy to see why
She's over six feet five
I'm only five foot two
Is there a Tyre somewhere
That might take me a spare
Is there a bank in town
That might cash me a pound
Is there a place you know
Where I can open the door

It's easy to see why
She's over six feet five
I'm only five foot two
Is there a Tyre somewhere
That might take me a spare
Is there a bank in town
That might cash me a pound
Is there a place you know
Where I can open the door

Oh I remember our first anniversary
It was one of those occasions where believe you me
I would rather been held ransom at the point of a gun
Then to suffer indignation for something I hadn't done

No matter how I try
I just can't say goodbye
No matter what you say
Looks like I'm here to stay
