LYRICS

 
THREES COMPANY
(Crickmore/Wright/Nelson)

 
Ha-ha

There was less than a minute
And you're such a friend
To go to these great lengths
To take me by the throat
You took me in, you dusted me down
And you injected my soul
With some strange and unreal desire

(Chorus)
We were clearly in bad repair
Just a motionless body in need of air

There was the smell of the blood
And the clench of the machine
I was in her arms like a brand new flavour
Nothing to punish
No lights in the house
Lit a new cigarette
From the stub of the old still glowing

(Repeat Chorus)

There was less than a minute
And you're such a friend
To go to these great lengths
To take me by the throat
You took me in, you dusted me down
And you injected my soul
With some strange and unreal desire

(Repeat Chorus)
I think you do this on purpose
Just to torture me
You cover me with prayers
Just to spit on the devil
Don't worry about him
You can't put him in his place
'Cause the sting in his tail
Is the smile on my broken face

Oh no, don't worry about him
You can't put him in his place
Because the sting in his tail
Is the smile on your broken face

Oh no, don't worry about him
You can't put him in his place
Because the sting in his tail
Is the smile on my broken face

Oh no, don't worry about him
You can't put him in his place
Because the sting in his tail
Is the smile on your broken face

(Repeat last two verses three times)
