Lyrics (J Parker)

Oh Saint Valentine, I pray
Show me the way
Show me who to kiss,
To kill;
And when to strike or stay

Oh the first girl he rode over
To, she lost his valour
And her halter quivered at his fingertips
Well call it beginners luck
He was well and truly sucked
And his heart was pierced by a cruel kiss


Well the second – what a peach
She had a lot to teach
Like the very best way to suck a lemon dry
Was she a dragon?
She had teeth
She scratched underneath and before he split, I swear I heard him cry:


He’d hung up his spurs
Made a ‘normal’ from a ‘worst’
When a finger came a-tapping on his shoulder
Was it the bottom of the glass?
Or hope that come at last?
He staggered out before the night grew colder
