You used to get it in your fishnets
So now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past, though
That Bloody Mary's lacking a Tabasco
Remember when you used to be a rascal?

Oh, that boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Not as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seem
My love when you dream them up

Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
And now when she tell she's gonna get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
Clinging to not getting sentimental
Said she wasn't going but she went still
Likes her gentlemen to not be gentle
Was it a Mecca dauber or a betting pencil?

Oh, that boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seem
My love when you dream them up

Oh, where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?

Falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
You were just sounding it out
You're not coming back again (x2)

    General Commenti love love love this cover.
    she sings it so beautifully.
    some people have a problem with her covering songs but i think she does this so well, i especially love the piano replacing the guitar.
    Gorgeous voice and perfect tempo for her.
