Saw two shadow men on the Vallance Road
Said they’d pay me for your address
Oh, I was so bold.

I said you see these two cold fingers?
These crooked fingers, I show you
a way to mean “no”

Well they didn't like that much I can tell you
He said “sunshine, I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes.”
They chased me up three flights of stairs,
Caught me in the lift how I sighed and said
“Hello, but you're impossible.”

And it’s just like he’s in another world
He doesn’t see the danger on show
now he’ll wind up like Joseph bloody in the hole.

And it’s just like she’s in another world,
and how they suit each other, oh no
But they never get close
It's impossible.

Saw the same two men on the Cally road
Said, now they double their offer,
I was so bold,

To say you see these two cold fingers
These crooked fingers I show, oh, you
a way to mean “no”

And it’s just like he’s in another world
He doesn’t see the danger on show
Now he’ll end up like Joseph bloody in the hole

It’s just like she’s in another world
And how they suit each other, oh no
But you never get close
It’s unstoppable

Fuck off!

And it’s just like we’re all in another world
and how we suit each other oh no
But you never get close … that’s close enough now …
