Well, this is a good idea
He wouldn't do it if it wasn't
He wouldn't do it if it wasn't one

Well, my friend fancies you
Oh, what a way to begin it all
You said they're always exciting words to hear

They woke up together
Not quite realizing how
Awkwardly stretching and yawning
It's always hard in the morning

And I suppose that's the price you pay
Well, oh, it isn't what it was
She's thinking he looks different today
And oh, there's nothing left to guess now

They left before the lights came on
Because they didn't want to ruin
What it was that was brewing
Before they absolutely had to

And how can you wake up
With someone you don't love?
And not feel slightly phased by it
Oh, he had a struggle

They woke up together
Not quite realizing how
Awkwardly stretching and yawning
It's always hard in the morning

And I suppose that's the price you pay
Well, oh, it isn't what it was
She's thinking he looks different today
And oh, there's nothing left to guess now

Quick, let's leave
Before the lights come on
'Cos then you don't have to see
'Cos then you don't have to see what you've done

Quick, let's leave
Before the lights come on
'Cos then you don't have to see
'Cos then you don't have to see what you've done

I'll woke you up, what time's the bus come?
I'll woke you up, what time's the bus come?
I'll woke you up, what time's the bus come?
