"The Woman Who Loves You" as written by and Philip Raymond Judd Brian Timothy Finn....
Don't stand a chance
Without romance
Keep the graveside warm for me
Ever since you shot through
I've crooned for you
Because the woman who loves you
Is the woman that you need, need to hold
But the woman who loved me
She's dead!

Without her charm
Arm in arm, lover's lane would be
Just a memory
Because the woman who loved you
She's dead

I wanted to buy her a diamond ring
And I wanted to buy her the kitchen sink
You know I wanted to buy her everything
See how she wobbles from side to side
See how she wobbles my lovely bride

Meet me wife, she's true to life, I love her
Yes I do, pushing daisies six feet down beneath her
Now my hair is falling out
And there's not much room to doubt
Life has left me cold
Ninety five and getting old
That's half the story told
Because the woman who loves you
Is the woman, woman you need, need to hold
But the woman, woman who loves me
Well she's dead, dead, yeah yeah

-spoon solo-

Oh how we danced, and when she glanced
Then I, I knew she cared for me
Ever since you've been gone, it's been so very long
Because the woman who loves you
Is the woman you need, need to hold
But the woman, woman who loved me
She's dead, dead to the world
She's dead to the world, yeah!

    General CommentIt's a song about an old man reflecting on his wife's grave, and missing her dearly. He remembers dancing with her (hence the spoon solo/ragtime-ish piano solo, but that's all he has left. Very powerful lyrically, and rather an odd topic for a group of young men to be singing about. Oh, and Noel Crobie is a boss on the spoons.
