"Well, O.K," she says, "I'll come on back,
Or you come to my place" - ya gotta love that.
I've heard parents speak of their children on stage -
Ya gotta love that, at primary school age.
When driving along, the first time you see
Your band's street poster, accidentally;
Friday night after work; or Steve Waugh out to bat;
There's beer in the fridge - ya gotta love that.
"It's only a lump" - ya gotta love that
When the tests are done, and results are back;
Unleaded's got cheaper; a seat on the wing;
When at last you're sure she keeps on looking;
The Kerrigan's castle; and Kafka's? - unsure;
Literary allusions that aren't too obscure;
You're in bed by ten - ya gotta love that -
After too many nights late back to back.
Some racist bastard says, "Why, you little black..."
Che Cockatoo Collins talkin' right back -
Ya gotta love that; and the phone finally rings -
It's the girl calling; when Paul Robeson sings;
Lust, before it goes away - and then when it's back;
Flashing high beams to warn of a speed trap -
Ya gotta love that. Your band writes a slow track,
And some people like it. Ya gotta love that.
