I lent you a hand but you never gave it back
You said you had grown very fond of my fingers
The way that the touch of the tips of them lingers
And you couldn’t possible part with them now
You carried them around, in your ha-andbag

And I lent you a light when everything around you was black – ah
I lent you a light when everything round you was bla-ack
You lit your cigarette – ts – ts – ts and then you left

And you needed a place to put your hand
I said you could borrow my hips
You needed a place to put your kisses
I said you could use my lips

I lent you a shoulder, a shoulder to lean upon - ah
I said you could keep it until you were feeling strong
You’re taking advantage of my kind loan
You carry it round town, pass it off as your own
And everyone thinks that you’re so very kind
But nobody knows that, that shoulder is my-i-ine

And you needed a place to put your head
I said you could lay it right here
You were looking for something to do,
With all those things that trouble you
I said I will lend you an ear

Do do – do do - do do – do do
(Worst of all, I gave you my he-art)
Do do – do do - do do – do do
('Cause yours wasn't working too good)
Do do – do do - do do – do do
(I am not spare parts for you to use and you to lose)
Do do – do do - do do – do do
Do do – do do - do do – do do
Do do – do do - do do – do do
Do do – do do - do do – do do
Do do – do do - do do – do do
Do do – do do - do do – do do

You use me and you lose me, yeah you do.

    General CommentI love this song, I think it's talking about how a person cares so much about someone else that they would do anything for them. Like lend them and ear. And that person abuses that privlidge and doesn't give anything back. And how everyone else thinks that the person is being nice to everyone and always offering their shoulder, but not really meaning it.
    I can really relate.
