Years ago in a silent world I fell in love with an English girl Her skin was clear and her mum wore pearls I fell in love with an English girl She asked me for an almond whirl I was obliged to the English girl And when I found the one she curled All round my neck, did the English girl But when the wrapper she unfurled "It's a little bit off," said the English girl Though disappointed, 'round she twirled Poise was a must for the English girl The sweet she binned, it was not hurled Slow motion for the English girl "How disappointing wanton her" Said the diamond mouth of the English girl "I hoped for more," said the English girl So Haggard and I don't mean more I wilted before the English girl And like a minx from Ronald's serve She flittered away, with the English girl Years ago in a silent world I fell in love with an English girl
