In a fortnight's time, you will be mine, I'll bide my time
You're a paradigm of womankind, you could be mine
I distrust myself but I've got to try, I catch your eye

Would you like to go on a date with me?
And I know, it's so old fashioned to say so
Five times five equals twenty-five
Don't you know your times tables by now?
Don't you know?

On the last train home, you wanna phone
Instead you rub your eyes
The reflection's grim in the windowpane, it's the human stain
Do you have a drink to erase the day? There's another way

So would you like to go on a date with me?
And I know, it's so old fashioned to say so
Five times five equals twenty-five
Don't you know your times tables by now?
Don't you know?

When it comes to girls, I'm mostly hypothetical
If I list their names, it's purely alphabetical
When it comes to girls, I'm truly theoretical
And if I test a nerve, it's merely dialectical

And so would you like to go on a date with me?
And I know, it's so old fashioned to say so
Five times five equals twenty-five
You should know your times tables by now
Don't you know? I said, don't you know?

In a fortnight's time
You will be mine, you will be mine
