Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
Ev'ry night I sit here by my window (window)
Starin' at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holdin' hand 'n' laughin' (laughin')
And thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
Memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to (but you've got me now)
When I'm not thinkin' of-a just how much I love you (I love you too)
I'm-a thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do (we used to do)

Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?

Both:
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
I still can hear the jukebox softly playin' (playin')
And the face I see each day belongs to you (belongs to you)
Though there's not a single sound and there's nobody else around (oh)
Well, it's-a just me thinkin' of the things we used to do

Robbie Williams (Jane Horrocks):
(Thinkin' of things) Like a walk in the park
(Lots Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Yeah Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Woah-woah) What about the night we cried?

Both:
Things like a lover's vow
Things that we don't do now
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do
And the heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to
You got me thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do (I hope so)
Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

[Talking]

Jane Horrocks:
You were rubbish in that

Robbie Williams:
Don't start that with me on this album

Jane Horrocks:
Why, why'd you do like that, that time?

Robbie Williams:
Well from start to finish then, you said that I'm wrong.

Jane Horrocks:
You said, you said "I was thinking about Kylie when I was doing this, and I was."

Robbie Williams:
You obviously weren't thinking about Kylie, you were thinking about June whitefield

Jane Horrocks:
I can't hear you, I can't hear

Robbie Williams:
Yeah, well you were thinking about June Witefield, that's who you were thinking about

Jane Horrocks:
I had to think about somebody and you told me Kylie

Robbie Williams:
Well listen, you just came in wrong and then it got progressively wrong from there.

Jane Horrocks:
What?

Robbie Williams:
You started wrong, and then it just went worse

Jane Horrocks:
Can't hear you, Your cussing out

Robbie Williams:
It just want bad, bad, bad right till the end.

Jane Horrocks:
Who said bad? When you sang

Robbie Williams:
When you sang

Jane Horrocks:
What?

Robbie Williams:
Yes you can, look you started this on your last album and I don't want anything to do with it, I'm going goodbye.
