  • I love you from the bottom, of my pencil case
    I love you in the songs, I write and sing

    Love you because, you put me in my rightful place
    And I love the PRS cheques, that you bring

    Cheap, never cheap
    I'll sing you songs till you're asleep
    When you've gone upstairs I'll creep
    And write it all down, down, down, down

    Oh Shirley, oh Deborah, oh Julie, oh Jane
    I wrote so many songs about you
    I forget your name, I forget your name
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
    I forget your name
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
    I forget your name

    I love your from the bottom of my pencil case
    I love the way you never ask me why
    I love to write about each wrinkle on your face
    And I love you 'till my fountain pen runs dry

    Deep so deep, the number one I hope to reap
    Depends upon the tears you weep, so cry, lovey cry, cry, cry, cry

    Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
    You made me so much money, I wrote this song for you
    I wrote this song for you
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
    I wrote this song for you
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too

    Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
    You made me so much money, I wrote this song for you
    I wrote this song for you
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
    I wrote this song for you
    Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
    For you, for you
    I wrote this song for you
    I wrote this song for you Writer/s: DAVE ROTHERAY, PAUL HEATON
