about

lyrics

call off the dogs, come and laugh a while
there’s wine on the table and there’s wood on the fire
feel the warmth of the work we’ve done
it’s not much of a life unless we have some fun

and the beat of the drum is in the finger and the thumb
there’s a fiddle in the air and there’s a banjo on the run
the guitar woos a star and then your voice comes like the sun
it’s honey in the ear my dear you are the only one

come back to bed it’s not the end of the weekend
let’s fuck until we see the light of monday’s misery
but it can’t be misery cos i’ve got you inside my head
and all day long i’ll sing the song ‘i’m gonna love you till i’m dead’
i’m gonna love you till i’m dead

and the beat of the drum is in the finger and the thumb
there’s a fiddle in the air and there’s a banjo on the run
the guitar woos a star and then your voice comes like the sun
it’s honey in the ear my dear you are the only one

oh well what if i can’t see the light?
i know you’ll look after me in the night
just like i’ll look after you all right
our love’s for better and for worse

so fall off the floor come and live beyond the door
there’s a bed up in my head and we’ve got food to feed us all
when it all comes out there’ll be a party and a crowd
we’re the two who say i do but never tell the town

and the beat of the drum is in the finger and the thumb
there’s a fiddle in the air and there’s a banjo on the run
the guitar woos a star and then your voice comes like the sun
it’s honey in the ear my dear you are the only one

you are the only one
