You can take 'The Lexicon of Love' away but I'm keeping Remain in Light'
You can take away 'It's a Shame About Ray' but I'm holding on to 'Country
Life' (Ohhh)
You can keep 'No Need to Argue' and I'll keep 'The Aeroplane Over the Sea'
But hold on to 'The Boy with the Arab Strap' cos I'm holding on to 'Village
Green'

I don't know if the knot just needs untangling cos the tapes get stuck all
The time
Either way I'm keeping 'Double Nickles on the Dime'

These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
The best of me and you(Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
The best of me and you

I still remember buying you 'Band on the Run' on the first day that we
Kissed
But you always did prefer 'McCartney I' because it reminded you of being a
Kid
No way your having 'This Nation's Saving Grace' you only listen to it when
Your pissed
But when you sober up it's always "Why the fuck are you still listening to
Mark E. Smith?"

I don't know if the knot just needs untangling or if we forgot which way's
Up and which way is down
But still the tape keeps going round and round

These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalala lalalalala)
The best of me and you (Shalalalalalala Shalalalala)
The best of me and you
Of me and you

Still the tape keeps going round and round.
The tape keeps going round [repeat til the end]

These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
The best of me and you (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
Our Desert Island Discs (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
The best of me and you (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)

    It's about a guy and a girl breaking up and going through their record collection to see who gets which one.
