Lady Godi­va’s Room

Before we go on the hon­ey­moon is over

Just because I’ve nev­er known your face
Don’t look at me in the wrong way
To try and pick you out from all this space
The cold­est room in the whole damn place
Lady Godi­va’s room
The only place she ever played in tune
Lady Godi­va’s room
The only place she ever played her bells in
Ah this is mad­ness
This is insane gloom

Before we go on the hon­ey­moon is over

When I asked I was beside myself
Thought that mar­riage would turn out well
In this holly and ivy age
The day we kissed on the mistle­toe train
The love we have is still inside us
The dreams we had have left inside and died
Lady Godi­va’s room
The only place she ever played in tune
Lady Godi­va’s room
The only place she ever played her bells in
Ah this is mad­ness
This is insane gloom

Before we go on the hon­ey­moon is over
Before we go on the hon­ey­moon is over
Lady Godiva the hon­ey­moon is over
