Saint Etienne – Avenue lyrics
Transcribed by mark dorset

[sample:]
A lemonade.


Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /


[backing throughout the verses:] ba-ba-da ba-da ba-ba-ba-da...


Pass me the suitcase, baby. / I know / it's not that easy and /
Give me / my mirror, love, / just give me / back my memories, /
And oh, / oh, how many years / is it now maurice? /


Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.


And I was / half-asleep, and / riding / on a slow-coach, I /
Think I / lose all these things still, / meaning / I'm not holy and, oh, /
Oh, your honey-dish, / oh, it's on my list. /


Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.


Wish my heart's wish / climbing out your window /
For your savage amusement. /
You put a spell over me, well, /
Smells like lemon flavour. /


Ba-ba-da ba-da ba-ba-ba-da...


Tuesday, / if I had you back again / you know / I'm against the future. /
Wednesday, / I was a little girl / (I was the little girl who'd like to snog your face.) /
And ooh, / oh, how many years / is it now maurice? /


Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.


Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
Oo-oo-ooh, / young heart. /
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
(and then I shall go back to maurice.) /
And, ooh, / oh the clown's no good.
