Sitting on the veranda, with my old girl Miranda 
5 o'clock shadows soft in the gloom 
In love after a fashion, we're broke, spent all our passion 
9 o'clock and we're off to our room 

Coming like a habit, coming like a ritual 
The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love 
The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love 

Drunk and disabled we're both under the table 
With the crumbs, in the doldrums we play
Good loving and laughter, we both know what we're after 
And there don't seem a lot left to say 

Coming like a habit, coming like a ritual 
The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love 
The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love 

Polly want a cracker, Polly want a cracker 

The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love 
The same old tête-à-tête in your dreamy feather-bed 
You give lessons in parrot fashion love, love, love, love. 

The same old monotone, you're gonna wind up on your own 
You learned your lesson, no more parrot fashion love 
Parrot fashion love
Love, love, love
