"If I Didn't Love You (I'd Hate You)" as written by Glenn Martin Tilbrook and Christopher Henry Difford....
If I didn't love you, I'd hate you
Watching you play in the bath
A soap suds stickle back navy
A scrubbing brush landing craft
Your skin gets softer and warmer
I pat you down with a towel
Tonight it's love by the fire
My mind goes out on the prowl
If I, if I, if I, if I, if I

If I didn't love you, I'd hate you
I'm playing your stereogram
Singles remind me of kisses
Albums remind me of plans
Tonight it's love by the fire
The wind plays over the coals
Passionate looks are my fancy
But you turn the look into stone

If I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I
If I didn't love you
Would you sit and glow by the fire
If I didn't love you
Would you make me feel so
Maybe love me
Oh if I didn't love you, mmm

If I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I

If I didn't love you, I'd hate you
Cocoa mugs sit side by side
It's time to poke at the fire
But it's not tonight
Looks I find
Taking a bite on a biscuit
The record jumps on a scratch
Tonight it's love by the fire
The door of your love's on the latch

If I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I, if I
If I didn't love you
Would you sit and glow by the fire
If I didn't love you
Would you make me feel so
Maybe love me
Oh if I didn't love you
Would you sit and glow by the fire
If I didn't love you
Would you make me feel so
Maybe love me
Oh if I didn't love you, mmm

If I, if I, if I, if I
Didn't, didn't, didn't, didn't
Love you, love you, love you, love you

    General CommentWow! I didn't realize how subversive this song was until I read the lyrics. I thought "pulling mussels from a shell" was contraversial. That song doesn't even come close to this one! The boys at Squeeze write and perform great songs but apparently they are also big time pervs!

    General CommentGenuis lyrics. I dont see how this is perverted as others claim. Just a simple somg about love gone wrong
    . "A soap suds stickle back navy"... i mean come on, what other pop/rock songer use that kind of metaphor and alitteration? They were in a different class of genius.
