True romance

True romance

Any time you hear the door bells ring
Never turn your back on love; never never never let it in; swing
Like art, take 'em; should your lover die, shine your shoes
Watch out, keep your windows down. Tomorrow it could be you
Get out of bed, get ahead, get a hat, read the rags, read the news
Stay in fashion, make some cash. You really got nothin' left to lose

True romance
Find a new romance
True romance
Another true romance
Give yourself another chance
Forgive your brothers and sisters
Find some time for tea and wine and valentines
Forget about the big picture

True romance

Make time to get lucky and find favour with the freaks
Be a fabulous weekend wonder and a miracle worker in the week
True romance
You are a genius everyday but don't lose your common touch
Join a gang, learn rhyming slang, learn greek, learn double dutch
Get a car, get a job, get a girl, pay your taxes, pay your bills
Pull yourself out the water, boy. God knows, no-one else will.

True romance
Find a new romance
True romance
Another true romance
Give yourself another chance
Forgive your brothers and sisters
Find some time for tea and wine and valentines
Forget about the big picture

Join a mercury cult, join a suicide pact, sport more sophomore, make more folklore,
I think my heart might be the new black, all the myths and legends are under attack,
So I'll buy some lunar lamb, buy a ticket for a day trip to the moon,
Give one eyes on the boys of summer and drink in the afternoon
Get online, get in line, read between the lines, straighten up your facts,
Stamp your post with penny blacks, 'cos 'Rule Britannia' ain't comin' back

True romance
Find a new romance
True romance
Another true romance
Give yourself another chance
Forgive your brothers and sisters
Find some time for tea and wine and valentines
Forget about the big picture

True romance
Find a new romance
True romance
Another true romance
Give yourself another chance
Forgive your brothers and sisters
Find some time for tea and wine and valentines
Forget about the big picture

True romance

True romance

    General CommentThe line 'Like art, take 'em; should your lover die, shine your shoes' should be 'Like Art Tatum, shoot your lover down, shine your shoes'.

    Art Tatum is a famous jazz pianist, hence 'Swing like Art Tatum'. The shoot your lover down is a 'Hey Joe' reference.

    General CommentAlso actually, just noticed the opening line is wrong.

    It's 'take time to hear the bow bells ring', in reference to idea that a cockney must be born within earshot of the st Mary-le-bow bells (know as the bow bells).

    General CommentSorry, should have read through these in detail before posting...

    The word 'sophomore' is actually 'stop the war'.
