They met at a party held by her friend Barney, next to the buffet spread
Discussed T-Rex the band, not the dinosaur
And tried the dip with some garlic bread
They went for some air, she told him she didn't care much for parties where everyone smoked
And with her nervous cold hands she lit a cigarette and laughed when he didn't get the joke
As they kissed in the garden, he got a hard on he tried to suppress without joy
And when she smiled he relaxed, so he lay on his back
And she did what girls do to boys
They felt so complete as they lay in the heat
Of the late summer firelight glow
A girl that likes me, sex and smoking and T-Rex is someone that I could get to know.
But you won't fool, you can't fool the children at the rec in Luton
The children at the rec in Luton

The night grew darker, she pulled on her parka
Cause she had to say her goodbyes
She started weeping, although he was sleeping
And didn't see the tears in her eyes
And as she brushed off the grass leaves from off her arse cheeks
And fumbled for her chewing gum
She looked up at Orion and knew she was flying off as soon as the morning begun
Oh but you won't fool, you can't fool those children at the rec in Luton
The children at the rec in Luton

He had no warning when he woke up next morning
And his heart cracked inside when he knew
That she was now his ex, the one that liked T-Rex
And above his head an airplane flew
Yeah he had no warning when he woke up next morning
And his heart cracked inside when he saw
That she was now his ex, the one that liked T-Rex
The band not the dinosaur
And you won't fool, you can't fool those children at the rec in Luton
The children at the rec in Luton
