Lyrics

On the day that your mentality

Decides to try To catch up with your biology Come 'round

'Cause I want the one I can't have And it's driving me mad It's all over, all over, all over my face

On the day that your mentality Catches up with your biology

I want the one I can't have And it's driving me mad It's all over, all over, all over my face

A double-bed And a stalwart lover, for sure These are the riches of the poor

A double-bed And a stalwart lover, for sure These are the riches of the poor

And I want the one I can't have And it's driving me mad It's all over, all over my face

A tough kid who sometimes swallows nails Raised on Prisoner's Aid He killed a policeman when he was thirteen And somehow that really impressed me It's written all over my face

These are the riches of the poor These are the riches of the poor

I want the one I can't have And it's driving me mad It's written all over my face

On the day that your mentality Catches up with your biology And if you ever need self-validation Just meet me in the alley by the railway-station It's all over my face
