Hey, I'm down on the city lane
Guess I am broke again
Summer is such a pain

Yeah, I'm down on the city floor
I guess I am pretty bored
Least I am not alone

Because here she comes again
Oh I saw her just yesterday
She looked at me in a certain way
Because she's a pocketbook angel

And I know she fakes the limp
Because I saw her in Littlewoods
Well, she was getting some frozen food
She just wants to be goofy

I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down

Because of all the things she sees
Because of all the things she sees
Things she sees

Yeah, she's got it all on computer disk
Because she's a marketing analyst
I sometimes wonder what she's got on me

Oh, sure, I had a job in an office once
I never talked to anyone
All I ever do is sit around

She told me over tea
She's not working for another boss
She got fired but it was their loss
She's a pocketbook angel

And now all the kids have got pocketbooks
I guess it's the way it looks
Their cosmopolitan diaries

I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down
I've seen her write it all down

Because of all the things she does
Because of all the things she sees
Things she sees

    General CommentHow can people not love this song? Yeah, it's a little difficult to find... and it's a demo, so it sounds poor, but it's sooo fun.

    Song MeaningThis song reminds me of many other songs from B&S about a loser guy with a winner girl.
    Just like Sebastian and Belle themselves.

    Btw, what means the expression "pocketbook angel" ?
