Split Enz

Split Enz were one of the most successful New Zealand musical acts of the 1980s. Formed in the early 1970s and variously featuring Phil Judd and brothers Tim Finn and Neil Finn, the band would go on to achieve chart success in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada ‒ most notably with their 1980 sing… more »

I saw you standing there at the bar 
Your eyes were glazed with passion 
A look of afar, a secret smile 
I blew a few kisses 
Said my name is Lyle 

That love in her eyes (love in her eyes) 
Heart to heart (heart to heart) 
A tender goodbye (a tender goodbye) 
Nothing could ever keep us apart 
As you sipped your tequila 
I knew I had to steal ya 
Read like a book 
Surprise that you took your time 
Dig that rhyme 

Gone, love took offense at the things I said 
Good advice would be to go to bed 
Rest my head, yeah 
Catch 40 winks 
While I dream about the things she said 

Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night 
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah 
Last last night, late last night 
She took my trembling hands and led me under the velvet sky 
Rolling on the hill top playing Jack and Jill 
Suddenly (suddenly) all was still, she was gone 

She seemed so aloof 
That's ninety per cent proof, with a lump in my throat 
I grabbed my coat and ran, cornered again! 
So I'll live for the moment and I'll take it as an omen 
Gotta weakness for de women and de wine 

Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night 
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah 
Late last night, ooh yeah, late last night 
She told me someone taught me everything I need to know, yeah 
Last last night, late late late late last night 
She told me everything I know, know, know.
