Gilbert O'sullivan – Looking lyrics

I'm looking for a man who knows how to finish
Better than to begin
I'm looking for a girl whose age is virginia
Name around seventeen
I'm looking for a tie that won't get knotted
One that will not be four making five
On I've a reason you see
That's good. Tell me where's the door

I like to think it's time I stopped interfering
In peoples private lives
I like to think the bits I find fascinating
Ought to decrease in size
I like to think but then you tell me who doesn't
And i'll tell you a tale/tail
Is the part you start with when you begin
Or brush if your dog's on sale

I like to think but then you tell me who doesn't
And i'll tell you a sale
Is the time you find out everything's cheap
Only prices remain unchanged

I'm wondering if the girl I married this morning
Wants us to get divorced
I'm wondering if the child we both plan on having
Shouldn't be ordered first
I'm wondering if the pain I have in my left leg
Isn't just in my head
Which is fine. Don't mind as long as I'm here
I might as well stay myself
