It was the shortest love affair that existed 
I wouldn't have bothered if she hadn't insisted 
But saying no's never been a strong line of mine
Be it to a lady or a bottle of wine
So we danced for an hour
And we drank for another 
Then she introduced me to her younger brother
And I looked on him as a brother of mine
But I wasn't quite sure how he looked on her

I wish I'd gone straight home to bed
I'd be watching the late film instead 
Of laughing and lying and dying here
And fearing that something be said
Oh open the floor 
I just can't take any more

She told me he was her brother 
Now I find out that he's her lover 
The light in his eyes that I'd noticed before
When I looked in the mirror on my bedroom door
It wasn't the way that you looked at your sister 
Just then I noticed he'd started to kiss her
Well I may have been slow to accept all he said
Soon felt myself turn from milk white to red
And I'd have done something but this you must see
Any way I looked at him he looked six foot three 

I wish I'd gone home to bed
I'd be watching the late film instead 
Of laughing and lying and dying here
And fearing that something be said
Oh open the floor 
I just can't take any more

She told me he was her brother 
Now I find out that he's her lover 
It was the shortest love affair that existed 
I wouldn't have bothered if she hadn't insisted 
But saying no's never been a strong line of mine
Be it to a lady or a bottle of wine
Be it to a lady or a bottle of wine
Be it to a lady or a bottle of wine
