You'd better take an older lover X6
You'll soon get tired of her



To take an older lover
Get ready for old stories
Of teenage sex
From the early sixties
Under cover
Behind office desks
Old divorces
Children's faces



You'd better take a younger lover
You'd better take a younger lover
Or take an older lover
You'll soon get tired of her
(She'll shag you out on the table)



Dear girls
Doctor Annabel lies! X3
You raced before
It's been done
Tripped and stepped on


You'd better take an older lover
You'd better take an older lover
Or take a younger monster
But deserve better



You'd better take a younger lover
You'd better take a younger lover
You'll miss your older lover
Her love was like your Mother's
With added attractions
You'd better take a younger lover X4
You'd better take an older lover
You'd better take an older lover
You'd better take a younger lover


Dear girls
Dear girls
Doctor Annabel lies! X4
On the colour page
French fries spread on her face
On the future autolytic enzyme son
Take an older lover X3

    General CommentIt sounds like he's saying "Who cares about how old the girl you're with is...you'll get tired of her just the same." I don't know.

    "Never trust your friendly agony aunt seems to be the message here. They're always ready with a stock response, hence the 'etc' and interchangeable 'older' or 'younger' lover. Beware of the older lover, though, who may ply you with rancid tales of carefree sex from back in the 60s. Plus, she'll 'shag you out on the table.' The screamed refrain' Doctor Annabel lies!' is a highlight here. Apart from wondering if there ever was an Agony Aunt called Dr Annabel, the last line is confoundingly enigmatic - 'the future autolytic enzyme son.' I know autolytic enzyme refers to self-digestion, but should 'son' be that great British red top, 'The Sun'? I only ask cos the Dr's face has French Fries on it, suggesting the paper/magazine she's in is being used to wrap chips in, traditional style. "
