Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Boutique In My Backyard lyrics

He looked gorgeous with his captive smile,
Met him by the river, near the ICI.
Wearing plastic rings, she had a feather cut,
PVC not leather 'cos it costs too much.

Left the smell of brillo in the flat as yellow.
Caught a train to London. Met a boy from Clapham.
Went to watch his band play. Wow! They're dressed in satin.
When she said she loved him, she was only joking.

Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
I don't like to travel too far.
Just me in my backyard.

Got a rat to Belgium with this other guy.
Saw her wings flutter; she flew a mile.
Now she's modelling dresses for a name I can't pronounce,
Goes on dinner dates with dukes and counts.

Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
I don't like to travel too far.
Just me in my backyard.

I wish that you were beside me.
I'm scared. I'm always hiding.
I'd like to take that ride
But I know I'll stay inside.
Just me in my backyard.

Caught a plane to New York. She met Calvin Klein.
Her body's on a poster as big as Times Square.
And sometimes when I'm down I think I could have been there
But I'm in my backyard drinking warm beer.

Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
Boutique in my backyard.
I don't like to travel too far.
Just me in my backyard.
I don't like to travel too far.
I'd like to take that ride
But I know I'll stay inside.
