When we were good she had a way with me
She'd simply stay with me and make my whole day ring
When we were good she'd made the nights go fast
She'd put out the lights so fast, she made my body sing

Oh, she knew me inside out
Oh, she made my senses shout
And I knew she would
When we were good

When we were good I never knew my name
And when the morning came I felt the sweet tears flow
When we were good we never went to town
We let the clocks run down, we let the whole world go

Oh, she knew me through and through
Oh, she showed me what to do
And I knew she would
When we were good

Oh, she knew me through and through
Oh, she showed me what to do
And I knew she would
When we were good

When we were good she had a way with me
She'd simply stay with me and make my whole day ring
When we were good she'd made the nights go fast
She'd put out the lights so fast, she made my body sing

When we were good she had a way with me
When we were good she had a way with me
