Toast and marmalade for tea
Sailing ships upon the sea
Aren't lovlier than you
Or the games I see you play

You more lovely than the day
When the sun is in your eyes
I see through your disguise
Or the games I see you play

    The singer is composing a list of things which are lovely, and ordering them accordingly. From the lyrics given we can deduce the following initial rankings:

    Loveliness

    1=. You
    1=. The games i see you play
    2=. The day
    2=. Toast and marmalade for tea
    2=. Sailing ships upon the sea

    The information as currently supplied places two items at joint first position, and potentially three in joint second. Clearly further details are required to solve this ambiguity, however the song merely re-stats the position a further five times without further elucidation; forshame. Still a lovely song though.

    The person singing this song is deeply in love with this beautiful lady. She is adored above all and yet this lady seem to treat this man with contempt and he is aware of it, yet it still isn't a deterent in his love for her.

    The world is wide and inviting
    this dish of a girl lovely, as i'm writing
    but she's messed-up royally.

    She can look stunning, but that vision
    is a façade and i am fed up wishin'
    she would stop these nasty games she plays.
