She was frigid like a Bible When she met her boyfriend Michael
He took her in his Zephyr They sat like salt and pepper Looking out across the city
From Lover's Leap is pretty The lights they flick and flutter He told her how he loved her
Next night he called for her
But Dad protected daughter
And told him she was poorly A lie was told there surely
So Michael felt rejected This wasn't quite expected
He drove off to his local Where he felt anti-social

She cried all night at missing The boy she could be kissing While he was falling over
He drunk himself back sober And went home in a taxi
And crashed out in the back seat
He slept just like a baby Which he hadn't done just lately He saw her in the morning Out with his sister Pauline
She felt all shy and soppy He acted cool and cocky He said tonight at Charlie's
There's going to be a party I'll meet you at half seven She visualized the heaven 
If you ever change your mind Which you do from time to time Never chew a pickle With a little slap and tickle You have to throw the stone To get the pool to ripple 
That night they danced together
It looked like love forever He put his hand on her leg
You should have heard what she said
He tried again much later It seemed to aggravate her
He drove home in silence Avoiding all violence She said let's watch the city
From Lover's Leap is pretty I think I need the fresh air
She put a comb through her hair
Then while she turned to kiss him
And very nearly missed him
She put her hand on his leg
He felt her tongue in his head

If you ever change your mind Which you do from time to time Never chew a pickle With a little slap and tickle You have to throw the stone To get the pool to ripple
