I swear your hair is such a perfect mess and confess it's a guess but you're broken hearted more or less.
Here you are without a car walking through the rain waxing public (something) in vain.
You wain, you wain, you wain, you wain.
(guy)9 times out of 10.
(girl)You'll come running back again.
(guy)6 times out of 8.
(girl)You tell yourself it's not too late.
(guy)3 times out of 4.
(girl)Keeping your eye on that front door.
(guy)1 time out of 2...
(together)I loves you. OOOOOOO. And the rainbows stop. OOOOOOO. And the rainbows stop...
(guy)The world would be lost without raincoats.
There, there. Don't dispair. There is plenty of fish in the sea.
One for you and two for me.
Let's go inside we'll make some tea.
(guy)9 times out of 10.
(girl)You'll come running back again.
(guy)6 times out of 8.
(girl)You tell yourself it's not too late.
(guy)3 times out of 4.
(girl)Keeping your eye on that front door.
(guy)1 time out of 2...

    General Commenti love this song so much i even emailed the band once
    here's the accurate lyrics (by jay):

    I swear, your hair is such a perfect mess,
    And I confess, it's a guess, but you're broken hearted
    more or less.

    Here you are without a car, walking through the
    rain... waxing poetic but all in vain, you wane you
    wane you wane.

    9 times out of 10, he'll come running back again.
    6 times out of 8, you tell yourself it's not too late.
    3 times out of 4, keeping your eye on the front door.
    1 time out of 2, I love you (he loves you).

    Oooh, and the rain won't stop... the world would be
    lost without raincoats.

    There, there. Don't despair, there's plenty of fish in
    the sea, one for you and two for me, let's go inside
    we'll make some tea.
