Only buy this if you're lonely 
Only listen if you're blue 
If you are married and you are happy 
This song is not to do with you 

If you're listening at your work place 
Feeling small amongst the men 
Do not sing this to your workmates 
This song is not to do with them 
But if you're sitting on a barstool 
Wondering what on earth to do 
Don't let them tell you no-one cares 
This songs one especially for you 

If you are listening on your radio 
Smiling while you drive along 
Tune the band into another 
Because this song is not your song 

If you're working as a DJ 
Leave this record in it's sleeve 
Cause this ones not for general airplay 
This song's for the day she leaves 

If you've bought this and you're sinking 
And I think that you know who 
It matters not the mouth that's singing 
This song's one especially for you 

So this goes out to the lonely 
So this goes out to the sad 
And it goes out to the only 
One you felt you ever had 

If you're there in total darkness 
With a letter in your hand 
Do not bother with the letter 
lust listen to the band 

So only buy this if you're lonely
