Björk - Short Term Affair lyrics

Tony Ferrino
It's a short time affair
You're my children's au-pair
But I just couldn't bear

Both
To keep my hands off you

Björk
I was barely eighteen
What you did was obscene
But to me it felt clean

Both
What else was I to do?

Tony Ferrino
The memory still lingers
You're cooking the kids fish-fingers
And ironing

Björk
Each morning you'd come down
In your paisley dressing gown
Then you sing
And the yearning started for a short-time affair

Tony Ferrino
No intention to stray

Björk
I was caught in your snare

Tony Ferrino
But my wife was awake

Björk
It was so debonaire

Tony Ferrino
So I thought what the heck

Both
I knew I couldn't resist

Tony Ferrino
It was a short time affait

Björk
You're the man you're the boss

Tony Ferrino
When I find you right there

Björk
Like the father I lost

Tony Ferrino
Clean our silver-ware

Björk
So to hell with the cost

Both
Right then at once we kissed

Björk
You took me to the kitchen, you're hands kinda started twitchin', felt so shy

Tony Ferrino
Nothing could stop what followed, lucky for me you swallowed

Björk
I know it's all over now

Tony Ferrino
Try to be strong somehow

Björk
I start a brand new life

Tony Ferrino
Please, please don't tell my wife

Björk
I won't stop loving you

Tony Ferrino
Please, please don't tell my wife

Björk
Au revoir, ciao, auf wiedersehen

Tony Ferrino
We must never meet again

Björk
Short time affair, heeeeeee aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ooooooooooooooo

Tony Ferrino
Short time affair , eeeeee oooooooooooo
