Saint Etienne – Calico lyrics

[the "calico" bits are sarah and the rest is q-tee.]
Dreamin' / that you are in my world, /
Wishin' / like a little girl. /
Watchin', / closely, / you suddenly appear. /
Like a dream, / you're gone, then you're here. /
You take to emotion / like a bird to flight. /
You drop an invitation, / maybe I just might /
Be your lover / or better / a friendly / aquaintance. /
Truly as I duly pay my love to you like maintenance. /

Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /

You're realistic, / your face conceal. /
Accentuate the passion. / I will reveal. /
You're like an angel that delights with the day. /
I'm pleadin' / don't ever go away, /
Story's reaching peak / the outlook is bleak. /
Please talk, say that you'll speak. / you're strong and I am weak. /
I need / the fortune at the end of the rainbow. /
I see you like a lantern - / you have a certain glow. / calico. /
Your smile is warm soft, / forever / appealing. /
Whenever you are present like a letter I am sealing. /
My love / like a dove / that blesses from above. /
The shower in an hour / won't you let me be your towel? / calico. /
Affection / affects you like a weapon. /
You're extreme and supreme / and nothing that you seem. /
A fateful chance / with a twist of hope. /
I'll be with you all the way / down the magical slope.

Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /

Babe, don't be afraid, / I'm wit' you everywhere. /
Gliding through enchanted waters / to you I swear. /
Expression is the key, / it's good enough for me. /
Cali can't you see, / forever yours? /
There's a feeling / of warmth, / a serious / sensation. /
It's true, / you have that / good vibration.
Your charm is overwhelming, you have reaches that I seldom see, /
Calico just let me be the one! /

Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /
Calico, / calico, / calico, / calico. /

Calico. / I see / that we were meant to be. /
Goin' in? ??

[outro samples:]
I never take of my hat except when I'm out of doors!
She made a prize from jenkins' ear, / and washed it down with a bottle of beer.
