She'd brought along the oranges 
He'd brought the tea 
They'd both brought along a sick-bag just in case 

The plate of chicken sandwiches 
Were lovely they agreed 
And I watched him spit the bits into her face 

'Do you love me like you used to' he sighs 
'I love you twice as much' she replies 
They were on the train to Venice, where else? 
I think tonight I fancy myself 

I'd rather drink that toast to my own health 
I think tonight I'd rather love myself 
And if you drink that drink to your own health 
I think tonight I'd rather love myself 

Later in the evening 
The sun came rolling down 
And they talked about their fantasies and fears 

Between the heavy breathing 
And those lighter licking sounds 
I heard him whisper this question in her ear 

'Would you still love me if I lost my legs?' 
'I'd see that you were loved and you were fed' 
'I end up in a car crash almost dead' 
'For richer and for partly severed head' 

I'd rather drink that toast to my own health 
I think tonight I'd rather love myself 
And if you drink that drink to your own health 
I think tonight I'd rather love myself 

The neighbours ask them out but they flatly refuse 
'We're saving up for a world-wide cruise' 
With a choice between loneliness and love-sick QE2's 
Well tonight I choose - self-abuse 

A four-pack in the fridge 
A good book on the shelf 
I think tonight I'd rather love myself
