Earworm: Jarvis Cocker - Leftovers

All my love songs for her are very strange.

 

 

I met her in the Museum of Paleontology
And I make no bones about it
I said: "If you wish to study dinosaurs,
I know a specimen whose interest is undoubted"

 

Trapped in a body that is failing me
Well, please allow me to be succinct:
I wanna love you whilst we both still have flesh upon our bones
Before we both become extinct

 

That's what I told her:
"I wanna be your lover"
And then I told her twice:
"I wanna be your lover"

 

Well, he says he loves you like a sister
Well I guess, I guess that's relative
He says that he wants to make love to you
Well instead of 'to', shouldn't that be 'with'?

 

Oh, I told you once:
"I wanna be your lover"
And now I've told you twice, Homes:
"I wanna be your lover"

 

And so I come to you filled with guilt and self-loathing
And I am praying that you could make me good
And so I fall upon your neck just like a vampire
Yeah, like a vampire who faints at the sight of blood, yeah

 

And I told you once:
"I wanna be your lover"
I'm gonna say it again
And then I told you twice:
"I wanna be your lover"

 

Well this is my CV and I've got no-one else to blame
So I will state, state my case, yeah, I will state it again

Come and help yourself to leftovers
Got a little surplus love and affection
And getting cuddly, so won't you cuddle me?
I could be your teddy bear, oh yeah

 

I know I ain't no eligible bachelor
This is no mouth-watering proposition
Make no mistake, you're in big trouble, little lady
If we start a-huggin' and a-kissin'
And a-kissin', are you listening?

 

'Cause I told you once
And then I told you twice
And now I told you three times
And at the risk of repeating myself
I'm gonna say it again

 

Yeah
I wanna be your lover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I wanna be your lover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I wanna be your lover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I wanna be your lover
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I wanna be your lover
