"The Twelve Tones" as written by and Stephen Duffy....
Little, get your coat we must leave
Get out on the street and in the breeze
Summer’s over, night must fall
Cover me in twelve tones

I was just a lad still in my teens
I saved up all I had for leather jeans
They’re bagged and broken at the seams
I had to hear the twelve tones

To fall in love’s as simple as a song
That you hear but once and sing along
Marriage is a symphony
You’ve got to know your twelve tones
You’ve got to know your twelve tones
You’ve got to know your twelve tones
