lyrics

Lyrics:
It’s Sunday morning,
And you left me this morning,
To go buy a new second hand coat.

It’s a Melbourne winter,
Sunny but bitter,
And no one agrees on the vote.

I better get up,
Did you leave the heat on?
The city’s coming down with a cold.

The dogs are singing,
Like they sing every morning,
Singing old Buddy Holly tunes.

I dreamt we didn’t sleep a wink,
Dreamt we were on the brink,
I woke up broken, battered and bruised.

I’ve never been happier,
Though things could be better,
I’m living on ibuprofen and the Blues.

Mind yourself if you’re going outside,
Tell Jane I say hello, tell Jane I say goodbye,
You're always late for Alice but that's no reason to cry,
Just come home to me tonight.

The more I learn,
The more I think we’re gonna burn,
But that’s something you already heard.

And if the dogs,
Are the worst that worry us,
We might survive this worried world.

And if it all goes to hell,
We lose our jobs and our health,
Will you die with me outside on the curb?

Mind yourself if you’re going outside,
Tell Jane I say hello, tell Jane I say goodbye,
You're always late for Alice but that's no reason to cry,
Just come home to me alright.

I knew the house was empty,
So I stood at the window,
And thought about the burning of Rome.

If summer never shows up,
And the city splits it's seams,
And the dogs tear at everyone’s throats,

Will you die beside me,
Back by the evening,
Wearing your new second hand coat?
Wearing your new second hand coat?
Wearing your new second hand coat?

Mind yourself if you’re going outside,
Tell Jane I say hello, tell Jane I say goodbye,
You're always late for Alice but that's no reason to cry
Just come home to me tonight.
