I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
Breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
Let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots babe
I just wanna be yours

Secrets I have held in my heart
Are harder to hide than I thought
Maybe I just wanna be yours
I wanna be yours, I wanna be yours
Wanna be yours, wanna be yours, wanna be yours

Let me be your 'leccy meter and I'll never run out
And let me be the portable heater that you'll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion (I wanna be)
Hold your hair in deep devotion (How deep?)
At least as deep as the Pacific Ocean
I wanna be yours

Secrets I have held in my heart
Are harder to hide than I thought
Maybe I just wanna be yours
I wanna be yours, I wanna be yours
Wanna be yours, wanna be yours, wanna be yours
Wanna be yours, wanna be yours, wanna be yours, wanna be yours

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
Breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
I just wanna be yours (Wanna be yours)
I just wanna be yours (Wanna be yours)
I just wanna be yours (Wanna be yours)

    Song FactTo be clear, the song itself is not actually the poem written by JCC. It includes some passages from it, but the song itself is not = the poem I Wanna Be Yours...

    General CommentReally beautifully done. This is actually a poem written by John Cooper Clarke. A teacher read this poem to one of his classes which Alex was in, and Alex was really blown away by it. So awesome that years later they've now turned it into this track.

    General CommentThis song is just lovely. I love it so much. i have posted a link to a video done in a very artistic way. It is not the original video, but it is AMAZING. It is almost certain that if you love this song like i do; you will love this video that correlates with the track that has blown me away.
