"Starry Eyes" as written by John Richard Wicks and Will Birch....
While you were off in France, we were stranded in the British Isles
Left to fall apart amongst your passports and your files
We never asked for miracles, but they were our concern
Did you really think we'd sit it out and wait for your return?

I don't want to argue
I ain't gonna budge
Won't you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don't want to argue
There's nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way

While you were on the beach, were you dreaming all about your share?
Planning to invest it all to cover wear and tear?
We paid for all the phone calls
The money's off the shelf
Don't you know that while you're gone away
I've got to help myself?

I don't want to argue
I ain't gonna budge
Won't you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don't want to argue
There's nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way

While you were in the pool, we were meeting with the boys upstairs
Talking to the money men, and carrying out affairs
We had no time for cocktails, or working up a tan
The boys have all been spoken to
The writ has hit the fan

I don't want to argue
I ain't gonna budge
Won't you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don't want to argue
There's nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way

    General Commentmoney's on the shelf, not off
    repairs not affairs
    A couple others are wrong too I think, not sure.

    General Comment"Won't you take this number down before you go off to judge" -- If you are performing this song acoustically you can alternate singing this with "before you call up the judge." It's really hard to decipher which one is correct but they both make sense.
