It wasn't the tie
That didn't match with his socks
It was something important
Something he forgot

It was the feeling he got
When he cheered her up
When she got low
It was something they shared
In her parents' gazebo

She was drunk
In a strapless wedding dress
She was screaming her lungs out
She had something to confess

She married the wrong guy
'Cos he had the blue eyes
And now she was crying her tear ducts dry
She married his best friend
He could warm her heart

She was sick of feeling blue
It was 1982
She watched Higgins vs Reardon
There was nothing else to do
And she broke down when Alex broke down
He wants his baby
She wants her baby

It wasn't the punch
That hurt him the most
He started a fight
During the wedding toast

She married the wrong guy
But no-one could see why
He had to say it out loud
He didn't feel noble, oh
He didn't feel proud

He was sick of feeling blue
It was 1982
He watched Higgins vs Reardon
There was nothing else to do
And he broke down
When Alex broke down
He wants his baby
They want some babies

They were sick of feeling blue
They didn't know what to do
They watched BBC 2
On their dirty afternoons
And they broke down
And they left town
He wants her baby
She wants his baby
