lyrics

the moment you started i switched off
i hate the way that you bitch and scoff
paper, scissors and stone you rock
you strung me up good so i tied you in a knot
cos you’re my first, my last, my everything
you’re my peggy sue, my mysterious girl

retreat, repent, reprise attack
i thought you had me covered til you shot me in the back
paper, scissors and stone the crows
we dance best when we’re on each other’s toes
cos you’re my girl from ipanema
you’re my long and winding road, you’re my girl from mars

and did it happen to be true?
it happened to be you
i said it happened to be true
it happened to be you

ba da da da da da da dah
ba da da da da da da da dah

you’re my first, my last, my everything
you’re my peggy sue, my mysterious girl.

did it happen to be true?
it happened to be you
i said it happened to be true
it happened to be you

you say that it’s the same game that everybody else plays
but can’t you see that after the wrapping and the blunting
it still cuts
it must

The Holy Orders continue to be loud.
