Lyrics

You've been gone for a little while now
I've been here on my own just composing these sounds
But I'm not on my own - you're there on the phone
Waking me up just as you're coming home
We're in different time zones
When you're going to work
I should be going to bed but I'm not
I'm writing this song, bopping along
Thinking 'bout you with a grin on my face!
You're ace, baby
You are my favourite
Thing in the universe I'm gonna savour it
If I have to pay for I do not mind
I have been skint before plenty of times
I have been destitute, I have been lost
Figure I'm found now so bugger the cost!
Anyway, Janet and Luther told me
That the best things in life are free
Oh, I love you
You make me feel like dancing!
And even when the skies are grey and cold
You're always gonna be my Babydoll
Oh, I love you
You make me feel like dancing!
And even when the skies are grey and cold
You're always gonna be my Babydoll
You're in Australia, working your hot ass off
London is beautiful, went out with my jacket off
For the first time this year today
Went to the park, saw the deer and they say "yo"
So do the terrapins and the ducks
One of them fell off a log, was hilarious
I bought a coffee and sat the grass
Remembering us this time last year
We fell in love, unmistakable
Who woulda thunk that Akira was capable?
Coupla dates turn to something amazing
The winter turned spring then the summer was blazing
My middle name's Jan, maybe yours could be Ying
Oh, what a glorious thing!
I got two turntables and a microphone
And I can't wait till you get home!
