Scritti Politti - The Word Girl (Flesh & Blood) lyrics

To do what I should do to long for you to hear
I open up my heart ... and watch her name appear

A word for you to use a girl without a cause
A name for what you lose when it was never yours

The first time baby that I came to you
I'd do things that you want me to
The second time baby that I came to you
Oh you found my love for you
The third time baby that I came to you
Oh oh oh I knew
The last time baby that I came to you
Oh how your flesh and blood became the word

A name the girl outgrew the girl was never real
She stands for your abuse the girl is no ideal

It's a word for what you do in a world of broken rules
She found a place for you along her chain of fools

The first time baby that I came to you
I'd do things that you want me to
The second time baby that I came to you
Oh you found my love for you
The third time baby that I came to you
Oh oh oh I knew
The last time baby that I came to you
Oh how your flesh and blood became the word

(ad lib to end)
