After You
by Pulp

Album: single release only (2012)
  • On the last night on earth when the horses run free
    The scriptures foretell of a party in Hackney
    In a dimly lit room crammed with loathing and hate
    They're selling their souls and I just can't wait

    I shrivel inside at the sight of her beauty
    I fall to the floor as she's shaking her booty
    The rain makes me shiver, the wind turns me blue
    Oh the things we get up to, to get through the night after you

    I knew it was wrong, I began to suspect
    When she reached over and pressed the eject
    I was up to the gunnels against your advice
    I felt so ashamed that I did it twice

    From disco to disco, from Safeway to Tesco
    We're shopping around from the cradle til death row
    From Tesco it's down to the 7-11
    To chase through the night time, to chase through the night after you
    After you

    I can't explain why I need to be free
    But if you need to be naked that's alright by me
    It's the fast track express to the graveyard, I know
    So what are you waiting for? Hey ho, let's go

    From disco to disco; from Safeway to tesco
    We're shopping around from the cradle til death row
    Don't stop til the train has pulled into the station
    I'll hold the door for you no, I insist, after you
    After you
    After you Writer/s: Candida Doyle, Jarvis Branson Cocker, Mark Andrew Webber, Nick Banks, Stephen Patrick Mackey
