While you were lost in France
We were stranded in The British Isles
Left to fall apart amongst the passports and the files
We never asked for miracles
But they were our concern
Did you really think we’d sit it out
and wait for your return?

I don’t wanna argue
I ain’t gonna budge
Won’t you take this number down
Before you call up the judge?
I don’t wanna argue
There’s a nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes
And be on your way

While you were on the beachwere you dreaming all About your share?
Planning to invest it all to cover wear and tear?
We’ve paid for all the phone calls
The money’s on the shelf
Don’t you know that while you’re gone away
I gotta help myself

I don’t wanna argue
I ain’t gonna budge
Won’t you take this number down
Before you call up the judge?
I don’t wanna argue
There’s a nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes
And be on your way

While you were in the pool
We were meeting with the boys upstairs
Talking to the money men
And carrying out repairs
We had no time for cocktails
Or working up a tan
The boys have all been spoken to
The shit has hit the fan

I don’t wanna argue
I ain’t gonna fight
Does it really matter any more
Who was wrong or right?
I don’t wanna argue
There’s a nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes
And be on your way
