the magic piper (of love) lyrics – edwyn collins

i’m through with love hangovers,
it’s best that i stay sober.
no rolling in the clover,
no gretna green trip over.
no honeymoon in paris,
i only feel embarr*ssed
for the cool cats,
the charmed kittens,
both smitten by the love songs
that he’s written.
caught in the sights
of a deadly sniper:
the magic piper of love.
the magic piper of love.
of love, of love.

my girlfriend, she go blotto
of cunnings and his grotto.
it turns out he’s a dirty old man.
the nice place that i want to be,
is sat up on this christmas tree,
while playing these games of
catch as catch can.
cause he’s a sweet talker,
a silent stalker.
all the savvy of a street walker.
more deadly than a h*rned viper:
the magic piper of love.
the magic piper of love.
of love, of love.

he’s a heart breaker,
a mover and a shaker:
the magic piper of love.

it’s kind of hard to swallow,
you know you’ve gotta follow,
the magic piper of love.

cause he’s a city slicker,
an expert politic-er:
the magic piper of love.

of love, of love.
of love, of love.
of love, of love.
