"Have You Seen Her Lately?" as written by Nick Banks, Jarvis Branson Cocker, Candida Doyle, Stephen Patrick Mackey and Russell Senior....
First you let him in your bed.
Now he's moved inside your head.
And he directs all the dreams you are dreaming.
I saw a friend of yours today,
she called me over just to say,
"I dunno if you've seen her lately but God she's looking rough".

No don't go round to see him tonight,
he's already made such a mess of your life.
Find something else to do with your time,
and do it quickly while you've still got the chance.

Do you think he'll fall apart?
Do you think you'll break his heart?
If you leave him on his own.
You are dreaming.
'cause he can fasten all his clothes,
tie his laces,
blow his nose.
It's time to teach him how to walk,
yeah, teach your baby how to walk away.

No don't go round to see him tonight,
he's already made such a mess of your life.
Find something else to do with your time,
and do it quickly while you've still got the chance.

You're not his mother,
you're not sister & brother.
He's not even your lover.
He's just a piece of luggage you should throw away.

No don't go round to see him tonight,
he's already made such a mess of your life.
Find something else to do with your time,
and do it quickly while you've still got the chance.

No don't go round tonight,
you'll never make it right.
He's already made such a mess of your life.
Find something else to do with your time,
and do it quickly while you've still got the chance.

    General CommentI like this song - can't believe no ones ever commented on it! Pretty self explanatory, girl is with a guy who's bringing her down and Jarvis is pleading with her to leave him behind.

    General CommentJst one comment ?! ... huum ok it is self explanatory indeed .... but I like Jarvis' plead .. I guess it is typical Pulp ... sing about the most common situations in a honest & simple way .. and they make such sense ... I love pop . I love Jarvis ... and I'm taking his advice

    General CommentA girl who is just about to fall in love with a married man. The man is trying to be a young boy once more, and make the life of the girl his personal playground.

    General CommentIs Jarvis going to be succesful in changing the girl's mind? I think he won't. It's terrible sad...
