  • Well, it happened years ago
    When you lived on Stanhope Road
    We listened to your sister
    When she came home from school
    'Cause she was two years older
    And she had boys in her room
    We listened outside and heard her
    Alright

    Well that was alright for a while
    But soon I wanted more
    I want to see, as well as hear
    And so I, I hid inside her wardrobe
    And she came home 'round four
    And she was with some kid called David
    From the garage up the road
    I listened outside, I heard her
    Alright

    Oh, I want to take you home
    I want to give you children
    You might be my girlfriend, yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

    When I saw you next day
    I really couldn't tell
    'Cause you might go and tell your mother
    And so you went with Neve
    Oh yeah, and Neve was coming on
    And I thought I heard you laughing
    When his Mum and Dad were gone
    I listened outside, I heard you
    Alright

    Oh, I want to take you home
    I want to give you children
    You might be my girlfriend, yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
    Oh yeah

    Well, I guess it couldn't last too long
    I came home one day
    And all her things were gone
    I fell asleep inside
    I never heard her come
    And when I opened up the wardrobe
    And I had to get it on, yeah

    Oh, listen
    Oh, we were on the bed when you came home
    I heard you stop outside the door
    I know you won't believe it's true
    I only went with her 'cause she looks like you, my god!

    Oh, I want to take you home
    I want to give you children
    You might be my girlfriend, yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
    Oh
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

    Yeah
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
    Oh yeah Writer/s: Candida Doyle, Jarvis Branson Cocker, Nick Banks, Russell Senior, Stephen Patrick Mackey
