Leftovers (Cocker Jarvis)

I met her in the museum of paleontology And I make no bones about it I said if you wish to study dinosaurs, I know a specimen whose interest is undoubted Trapped in a body that is failing me Well, please allow me to be succinct I wanna love you whilst we both still have flesh upon our bones Before we both become extinct That's what I told her: I wanna be your lover And then I told her twice: I wanna be your lover Well, he says that he loves you like a sister Well I guess, I guess that's relative He says that he wants to make love to you Well instead of "to", shouldn't that be "with"? Oh, I told you once: I wanna be your lover And now I've told you twice: I wanna be your lover And so I come to you filled with guilt and self-loathing And I am praying that you could make me good And so I fall upon your neck just like a vampire Yeah, like a vampire who faints at the sight of blood And I told you once: I wanna be your lover I'm gonna say it again And then I told you twice: I wanna be your lover Well this is my CV and I've got no one else to blame So I will state, state my case, I will state it again Come and help yourself to leftovers Got a little surplus love and affection And getting cuddly, so won't you cuddle me? I could be your teddy bear... oh yeah I know I ain't no eligible bachelor This is no mouthwatering proposition Make no mistake, you're in big trouble, little lady If we start a-hugging and a-kissing And a-kissing, are you listening? 'Cause I told you once And then I told you twice And now I told you three times And at the risk of repeating myself I'm gonna say it again Yeah I wanna be your lover Yeah yeah yeah yeah I wanna be your lover Yeah yeah yeah yeah I wanna be your lover Yeah yeah yeah yeah I wanna be your lover Yeah yeah yeah yeah I wanna be your lover
