My darling Clementine, you know I love you
My darling Clementine, you know I do
I bless and curse the day I found you
I wonder why
I get lost in the wonderland around you

But you're always welcome here
I keep love handy, I keep it near
And I take note of all of your witty reposts
And I follow with the famous quotes and
and when i say I care, i think i really mean it

She's got the money, and she
She's moving on
She's thinking on
She's thinking on all the good advice
Because there's always good advice

The man with the golden arm rarely deals a joker
But he kept two aside, just for you
He burnt your fingers in the fire
Oww

    General CommentIn think this song is about Carl and/or Kate. People he loves, but feels betrayed by. Kate because people advise her to dump him, and Carl because he usurped him from the Libs.

    right im probably really wrong but u know the days when pete kept like an online forum diary sort of thing? well maybe the top line is like someone sending "witty reposts" and then he writes back with famous quotes. andalso


    She's got the money, and she
    She's moving on
    She's thinking on
    She's thinking on all the good advice
    Because there's always good advice

    kate moss cos obviously shes got money and everyone gave her advice to leave him

    My InterpretationWhilst the song is not necessarily about drug use - it does reference a famous film about heroin:
    "The man with the golden arm rarely deals a joker' - A famous film released in 1955 about morphine addiction had the title "The man with the golden arm". This line is a wonderful display of Pete's song writing skills as to most people this would probably go unnoticed.
