Standing on the dock at southampton
Trying to get to holland or france
The man in the mac
Said, youve gotta go back
You know, they didn't even give us a chance

Christ, you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me

Finally made the plane into paris
Honeymooning down by the seine
Peter brown called to say
You can make it okay
You can get married in gibraltar, near spain

Christ, you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me

Drove from paris to the amsterdam hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspeople said
Say, whatre you doing in bed?
I said, were only trying to get us some peace

Christ, you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me

Made a lightning trip to vienna
Eating chocolate cakes in a bag
The newspapers said
Shes gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag

Christ, you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me

Caught the early plane back to london
Fifty acrons tied in a sack
The men from the press
Said, we wish you success
Its good to have the both of you back

Christ, you know it aint easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me
The way things are going
They're gonna crucify me
