I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

Can't seem to do anything but stare
My C.P. coat is lyin' just there
Draped over the edge of that dusty chair
All fits into place suddenly

Yeh, the coat was hangin' up under my stairs
But one day, went leavin' the cupboard bare
The facts all click in and become square
He stole it while I was unaware

But why's he denyin' it, when it's so bate?
Lookin' at the telly, won't look over straight
Why's he not flappin' and explainin' away?
To one very fuckin' frustrated mate

Dan's been trustin' every word Scott says
He believes in mates so fair play
But Scott's story is too far outweighed
And I'm gonna act before it's too late

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

This must all look a bit weird
It's Mike's C.P coat sittin' here
Draped over the chair
So that it appears to all fit me up suddenly

And clear, I'm gonna have to just try and volunteer
An' answer 'bout the man who left the bomber here
He must've picked it up from Mike's dear
Girl's house, when the weather wasn't clear

The man must've thought it was Simone's coat
We didn't think it was Mike's coat though
I can't just deny it, 'cos my face shows
Lookin' at the telly's not aidin', no

I can't tell Mike, this man didn't know
And innocently borrowed the coat at Simone's
'Cos then Mike would demand to know
Why this man was even at Simone's?

That frown could mean anything
What the fuck am I gonna do now?
He know's I'm lyin'
I wish I could read his mind
It's written all over my face

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

What the fuck's he saying? She had the garm'
Either he has gone John Barnes
Or he's tryin' to spin me a con's yarn
He think's he's the fuckin' don gar

How long have I undergone his smarm?
Shruggin' it all off as fun charm
If he don't stop lookin' at the TV, though
I'm gonna wrap the cable round his wee throat

"Hang on", Scott says, "Simone had the coat"
Where did he see her on the d low?
What is it I don't need to know?
Is he scheming to be near Simone?

In the club I wondered what was on the go
Dan was tryin' to keep Scott from bein' close
And Scott teefed me money and he teefed my coat
And he's tryin' to steal my girlfriend from under my nose

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

I wish I could read what his eyes are sayin'
Starin' straight and not blinkin'
He's not givin' anythin' away
What is he thinkin'?

Right, I can't be bothered with this no more
I'm gonna have to tell him, I owe him the score
I wish I could tell him about the dough on the draws
That's somethin' I don't know, I swore

The coat thing will look dodgy loads more
If I don't throw it down as the crow soars
I'd better put the video on pause
Face up toe to toe over the floor

He really needs to know how his jacket
Miraculously appeared round my gaff, here
And the man that left it's been shaggin'
Mike's girl behind Mike's back and thing

This shit's all got a bit out of hand
There's no options I'm all down on plans
I'm jus' gonna have to spit it now, man
Tell Mike the person that brought the coat 'round was Dan
