There's no more little secrets we haven't yet disclosed 
We bore the living daylights of anyone too close 
And all our cards at Christmas are written to us both 
Count them up who's got the most? 

Said we'd be close 
Said we'd work perfectly 
Said that we'd toast 
Beautiful company 

Closer than a sister to her baby brother 
Closer than a cat to the child that she'll smother 
It's too close for a lover 
It's too close for a lover 
We are each other 
We are each other 

We've been through all positions and this one's definitely best 
You move Middle East and I'll move Wild West 
What happened to our friendship we could easily have guessed 
Add it up we're self-possessed 

Said we'd be true 
Said we'd be so so proud 
Just me an you 
We'd shout it out aloud 

Closer than a sister to her baby brother 
Closer than a cat to the child that she'll smother 
It's too close for a lover 
It's too close for a lover 
We are each other 
We are each other 

Remember we went shopping and we went by piggyback 
I shaved all my legs and you grew hairs upon your back 
Well no-one's ever been since to this lover's shack 
It's a cul-de-sac 

Said we'd be close 
Said we'd work perfectly 
Said that we'd toast 
Beautiful company 

Said we'd be true 
Said we'd be so so proud 
Just me an you 
We'd shout it out aloud 

Closer than a sister to her baby brother 
Closer than a secret agent working under cover 
It's too close for a lover 
It's too close for a lover 
We are each other 
We are each other
