Well I've waited now for what three whole weeks
And she hasn't called me up once
Had I known she liked me as much as this
I wouldn't have prayed she'd rung
Keep your love I don't need it
As the day begins to dawn
I have my coat to keep me warm

If it weren't so much that we need them
Then I think that I'd do without
Now I know what's meant when a heart is broke
And what all the fuss is about
Keep your distance I've told you
For at least when there's a storm
I have my coat to keep me warm

And a coat won't hurt you
It won't desert you
It will not let you down come to think of it
Even if it doesn't fit

And a coat won't hurt you
It won't desert you
It's always by your side if you need it
Even if it doesn't fit

Put your faith in someone and what do you get
Well if you're as lucky as me
You'll be made to look like a piece of dirt
Spelt S.H.I.T.
Could be worse don't I know it
And even if the sleeves are torn
I have my coat to keep me warm

Better of out of love than in it
Causes nothing but sorrow and pain
I'd recommend that of course you try it
Then again then again
