You said you were a virgin when I took you in the park
You didn't need a light to help you make it in the dark
You took the highest bidder who could satisfy your needs
You wrapped yourself around him and you squeezed him till he bleeds
You never needed wings until I taught you how to fly
You never needed water till your well ran dry.

You always set your target on the highest social scene
You never gave your number till you knew where he had been
You used to shop at Harrods, bought the smartest clothes
You wore them inside out so that the maker's label showed
You never needed money till I taught you what to buy
You never needed water till your well ran dry.

You're just about as subtle as a razor with your teeth
You got your greatest pleasure with your lover underneath
You sparkled like a diamond with a smile that you could trust
You would find yourself a sucker and you'd grind him into dust
You never started smoking till I taught you to get high
You never needed water till your well ran dry.

Water water everywhere, but not a drop to drink
Take a look into the mirror baby, it's later than you think
You're the ultimate expression of Picasso's favourite brush
The wall in his apartment he painted in a rush
You never shed a tear until I taught you how to cry
You never needed water till your well ran dry.
