I've got nasty habits, I take tea at 3
Yes and the meat I eat for dinner, it must be hung up for a week
My best friend he shoots water rats and feeds them to his geese
Don't you think there's a place for you in between the sheets?

Come now, honey, we can build a home for 3
Come on now, honey, don't you want to live with me?

There's a score of harebrained children, they're all locked in the nursery
They've got earphone heads, they've got dirty necks, they're so 20th century
Well they cue up for the bathroom 'round about 7:35

Don't you think we need a woman's touch to make it come alive?

You'd look good pram pushing down the high street
Come on now, honey, don't you want to live with me?

Oh the servants they're so helpful, dear, the cook she is a whore
Yes, the butler has a place for her behind the pantry door

The maid she's French, she's got no sense, she's from the Crazy Horse
And when she strips, the chauffeur flips, the footman's eyes get crossed

Don't you think there's a place for us right across the street?
Don't you think there's a place for you in between the sheets?
