lyrics

if I fall in love this time
I’m going to check it out thoroughly
I’m going to scope out all the angles
and look for all the things that worry me
I’m going to look into your background
I’m going to stare into the distance
I’m going to check up on your family
and go to where you spend Christmas

I’m going to buy every textbook
ever written on romance
my love is going to be perfect
I’m getting out of this no man’s land

I’m going to plan every evening
down’ to the last detail
I’m going to write every menu
and pre-mix every cocktail
I’m going to script my conversations
and I will always be charming
I won’t make any faux pas
and I will never be alarming

because I’ve read every textbook
ever written on romance
my love is going to be perfect
I’m getting out of this no man’s land

so now I’m looking for that someone
to target my affections
but I don’t want somebody difficult
I’ve had enough of rejections
so if you’re practical and organised
and you’re tired of being lonely
we can plan our love together
but would you please apply only

if you’ve read every textbook
ever written on romance
our love has got to be perfect
we can get out of this no man’s land
