"We're the Pet Shop Boys" as written by and Howard Rigberg....
We're the Pet Shop Boys
Suburbia's a slipstream
To a memory
Of a time when you were
Close to me
I pretend
I'm there again
I close my eyes and see you
Better than before
Then I feel you touch me
And it's 1984
I know what you will say
Before you start
In my heart

We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys

Every thought's a fashion
Or a crime
And every boy is just
A waste of time
But I pretend
It was different then
Maybe it's a habit
Maybe it's a sin
But I find out
When I try it on
It crawls beneath my skin
Once it gets inside me
It won't go
Now I know

We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys

Rent
Shopping
Being boring
It's alright
It's a sin
I'm not scared
In denial
I want a dog
I want a lover
Can you forgive her?
Do I have to?
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?

We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys

    General CommentWeird track, funny though. Rob says: "I just love the fact that the Pet Shop Boys covered it, it is not one of their songs and I love the irony of me covering a cover. Above all that the romance for me in this song is paramount. Did I feel like a Pet Shop Boy when I was recording it? Yes absolutely (said with a big smile). Chris Heath (The person who co-wrote ˜Feel" my autobiography with me) played it to me and I fell in love with it. I must say when I've listened to it back and when I get a chance to sing it, the "What have I, What have I, What have I done to deserve this" bit sends shivers down my spine, everytime it comes up. It's a sense of history, yours and mine and those particular lyrics really affect me. It's an honour to do it. I love the Pet Shop Boys and I was pleased to learn that amongst pop genii I can hold my own."
