Lyrics

They were made for each other
At least the TV told her so
It's just another night in Sydney
Under an FM radio
Playing songs of innocent and un requited love
The look on his face said honey
What are you thinking of?

She said you just sit there quoting lines
From the irresistable Oscar Wilde
Because your own attempts at modern verse
Lack all the romance of an Irish curse

She said "Let's hit up the opera house
If you can think of nothing better."
He said "I've never been one to think at all."
She said "I think I realized that when I read your first love letter
But it never bothered me at all
Because we were made of each other
At least the TV told me so."
It's just another Sunday morning on a Waltons episode
Mary Ellen said love, hey love, It's just a real good feeling
When I say "I love you, baby" guess that's what I've been meaning

But you just sit there quoting lines
From the irresistable Oscar Wilde
Becuause your own attempts at modern verse
Lack all the romance of an Irish curse
You might win your beauty queen
If not through love, through sympathy
But I know your poets dead
It's your weakness that I want instead

They drove all night in their 67 Chevy
Until the sun came up upon their love
And he broke the silence
Before it got to heavy when he said
"Darling what are you thinking of?"
And she said "Maybe someday we'll get to know eachother
Maybe then I'll find out who you are."
And he said "I can tell you right now dear
I'm the son of my mother
And I'm sitting right beside you in this car."

But you just sit there quoting lines
From the irresistable Oscar Wilde
Because your own attempts at modern verse
Lack all the romance of an Irish curse
You might win your beauty queen
If not through love, through sympathy
But I know your poets dead
It's your weakness that I want instead

I know your poets dead
It's your weakness that I want instead

They were made for each other
At least the TV told her so
It's just another night in Sydney
Under an FM radio
Playing songs of innocent and un requited love
The look on his face said honey
What are yout thinking of?
