Lyrics

So, goodbye Please stay with your own kind And I'll stay with mine There's something against us It's not time It's not time So, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

I know I need hardly say How much I love your casual way Oh, but please put your tongue away A little higher and we're well away The dark nights are drawing in And your humor is as black as them I look at yours, you laugh at mine And "love" is just a miserable lie You have destroyed my flower-like life Not once - twice You have corrupt my innocent mind Not once - twice I know the wind-swept mystical air It means : I'd like to see your underwear I recognize that mystical air It means : I'd like to seize your underwear What do we get for our trouble and pain ? Just a rented room in Whalley Range What do we get for our trouble and pain ? ...Whalley Range ! Into the depths of the criminal world I followed her ...

I need advice, I need advice I need advice, I need advice Nobody ever looks at me twice Nobody ever looks at me twice I'm just a country-mile behind The world I'm just a country-mile behind The whole world Oh oh, oh ...

I'm just a country-mile behind The world I'm just a country-mile behind The whole world

Oh oh, oh ... Take me when you go Oh oh, oh... Take me when you go Oh oh, oh ... I need advice, I need advice
