  • Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work

    Are you with me?
    Are you with me?
    Are you with me?

    You're not golden
    And I'm getting tired
    Act like you own the place
    When really you've only just arrived

    I caught first glimmers
    In hides and skins
    Look who's all grown up
    Black swanning about the solar winds

    You're gonna lose it all
    And find yourself on your knees
    So, get a grip and you might
    Flow, reverse the great, slow bleed

    I've tried patience, but
    You always want a war
    This house won't tolerate any more
    Stop this right away

    Put that down and clean this mess up
    End of conversation
    Put your back in it and
    Make it up to me now

    The cold shoulder
    Folded arms and looking up
    You've never listened
    And carry on careless, regardless

    This is not a fire drill and
    If we hold any hope
    It's harmonic connection
    And stereos in symbiosis

    These lego land empires
    Choking out mine now
    You're everywhere, everywhere
    Multiplying around me, child

    A strain on my heart
    This rock can't tolerate any more
    Stop this right away

    Put that down and clean this mess up
    End of conversation
    Put your back in it and
    Make it up to me now

    [Repeat: x8]
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work
    Baby, behave, we'll make it work

    (Baby, do you love me?)

    Whoa, oh, oh, oh
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh (yeah)
    Whoa, oh, oh, oh

    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    Back
    Stop this right away

    (Baby, behave, we'll make it work)
    Put that down and clean this mess up
    End of conversation
    Put your back in it and
    Make it up to me now

    Stop this right away
    Put that down and clean this mess up
    End of conversation
    Put your back in it and
    And make it up to me now

    Are you with me?
    Are you with me?
    Are you with me?

    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    You're only what you give back
    Back

    (You're not golden
    And I'm getting tired
    Act like you own the place
    When really you've only just arrived) Writer/s: IMOGEN JENNIFER JANE HEAP
