Lindisfarne - Significant Other lyrics

Clements-Stonier

I was standing on the corner, I was waiting for a ride
I saw Tom Cruise coming with a lady by his side
I said "Hey Tom, is that your wife or your mother?"
he said "Step up and meet my significant other"

He said "Folks like me, we're not like you,
we got more money, we got better things to do,
we don't say friend, we don't say lover,
the name of the dame is significant other".

Hey junior mister living on your own
they're whispering in the corridors, raking up old bones
storm's gonna break, you're gonna need some cover
better find yourself a significant other

'cos the red-top rags and the glossy magazines
and the files on the walls are gonna wanna peep behind the scenes
and they'll decide who gets between the covers
see, there's me and there's you and there's significant others.

Who you with when you go down town?
who you with when the word gets round?
who's that keeping you out all night?
who's that making you feel alright?

A a man needs a maid and a heart needs a home
like Peters and Lee, like Robson and Jerome
Lenin and the Beatles, Marx and the Brothers
everybody needs their significant others.

Instrumental:

Who you with when you go down town?
who you with when the word gets round?
who's that keeping you out all night?
who's that making you feel alright?

Well Clark needed Lois and Janet needed John
and what you don't know is you're gonna miss me when I'm gone
and someday soon you're gonna wake up discover
everybody needs a significant other.

Instrumental:

everybody needs a significant other

Instrumental:

everybody a significant
