I say a prayer for those who
Unlike me
Suffer some form of brutality
I get no kicks from mugging pensioners
I don't believe that that's all they're good for
You know I love you
And I always will
I keep a picture of you on me still
It's so sad
You were the best love I never had

I see you've brought your children along too
The little one she looks a lot like you
I'm sure you must be very proud of them
I'd love to have a child myself but then
On second thoughts I think I'd better leave
This talk of children is upsetting me
It's so sad
You were the best love I never had

And I can't for the life of me fathom
Out why Eve when she met up with Adam
Didn't know they would put at risk
Every man, woman, child
For the bite of an apple

Remember days of wine and daffodils
A hand upon your breast oh what a thrill
It's so sad
You were the best love I never had

You make your bed
And then you lie in it
Wouldn't the truth be more appropriate
It's so sad
You were the best love I never had
The best love I never had
The best love I never had
The best love I
The best love I
The best love I never had
