Valentine's Day Is Over - Billy Bragg

    Some day boy you'll reap what you've sown
    you'll catch a cold and you'll be on you own
    And you will see that what's wrong with me
    Is wrong with everyone that
    You want to play your little games on

    Poetry and flowers pretty words and threats
    You've gone to the dogs again and I'm not placing bets
    On you coming home tonight anything but blind
    If you take me for granted then you must expect to find
    Surprise, surprise

    Valentine's Day is over, it's over
    Valentine's Day is over

    If you want to talk about it well you know where the phone is
    Don't come round reminding me again how brittle bone is
    God didn't make you an angel the Devil made you a man
    That brutality and economy are related now I understand
    When will you realise that as above so below there is no love

    For the girl with the hour glass figure
    Time runs out very fast
    We used to want the same things but that's all in the past
    And lately it seems that as it all gets tougher
    Your ideal of justice just becomes rougher and rougher

    Thank you for the things you bought me thank you for the card
    Thank you for the things you taught me when you hit me hard
    That love between two people must be based on understanding
    Until that's true you'll find your things
    All stacked out on the landing, surprise, surprise
