88 – They Ought To See You Now lyrics

You took their breath with just a little wink
You had their heart with just a dance
Had them crawling, yeah you made them think
Ah that they really had a chance

Down and alone
And never shown how
They ought to see you now

Yeah you were meant for only sunny days
You had the silver in your mouth
Ah but life has got a funny way
Of ripping all that silver out

Down and alone
And never shown how
They ought to see you now

Oh we loved those lips
And so fine hips
That you used to shake
Yeah you take what you could take
Yeah well maybe we're all better off this way

I heard about it from a friend of mine
He said they really did you in
Said you're hard enough to say you're fine
But it was written in your skin

Down and alone
And never shown how
Ah somehow
Yeah somehow
Ah somehow
They ought to see you now
