Lyrics

You father gave French kisses
Your mother gave you kicks
They caused the kind of damage
It takes more than love to fix
And I knew that you were trouble
I should have turned my tail and run
It was a war of lust and logic
I hang my head and say lust won

With the body of an angel
That pretty doll-like face
I felt just like St Anthony
Temptation everyplace
But I was just a young man
I thought that we could just have fun
It was a war of lust and logic
I hang my head and say lust won

Well I couldn’t be your Daddy
I couldn’t ease your pain
And so I’d pack my bags
And try to leave you once again
Oh but I’d come crawling back home
With the setting of the sun
It was a war of lust and logic
I hang my head and say lust won

Well I hope that you are happy
Somewhere in this world
I hope that you’re a woman now
Not stuck a little girl
And I know I should apologise
For the wrong that I have done
It was a war of lust and logic
I hang my head and say lust won
