Richard
Richard belongs to Jayne
And Jayne belongs to yesterday
How can I go on
When every alpha particle hides a neon nucleus

Neil belongs to love
And love belongs to no man
How can he go on
When no-one answers the adverts in his mind?

Chorus:
There will be parties, there will be fun
There will be prizes for everyone
And hey, hey, hey, here comes Richard
There will be ladies dressed in lace
I just want to see her face
When hey, hey, hey, here comes Richard

You helped me build this bed
But you won't help me sleep in it
When I fall between you and the wall
Our titanic love affair sails on the morning tide

Chorus

I really love you style
Did you read it in the Look and Learn?
How long can we go on?
Do you think I only love you
Because you sleep with other boys

Chorus
