Mandalay

lyrics

Say you love me or I'm going to eat worms
Then you'll be sorry
I'll gouge my eyes out with hooks and pins
Bite off a finger and shave off my chin

I'll jump up and down on the live rail
Cause disruption to rush hour service
Angry commuters will kill me to death
But I'll implicate you with my last dying breath

Would you not give a hoot if I sailed away
And joined the Foreign Legion
Fried in the desert, up to my neck in sand
Or buggered by camels up the old Sudan?

Say you love me
Say you adore me
Say let's run away
Say you'll go with me to Mandalay
Go with me to Mandalay
Say something... say something...

Or else I'll... hold my breath until my face turns blue
And drink caustic soda
Get gored by stampeding caribou
Or hack out a kidney and mail it to you

I'll blight your interminable soirées
To which you never invite me
Hold your guests at gun point – make 'em play
Russian roulette and the biscuit game

Say you love me
Say you adore me
Say let's run away
Say you'll go with me to Mandalay
Go with me to Mandalay
Say something... say something...

So... say you love me or I'll make you eat worms
Or join some cult in California
Or catch pneumonia, or just a nasty chill
And fall to my death from your window sill

By now my dear you will have got the gist
If that is you're still listening
To recapitulate dear, give me a sign
Or I'll douse my poor body in gasoline

Say you love me
Say you adore me
Say let's run away
Say you'll go with me to Mandalay
Go with me to Mandalay
Say something... say something...
