a simple favour if I may, please burn in effigy, the chapel of my Sunday

and it would be just the thing, if you could lend a wing, to stop me falling

and if perhaps you will permit, please bend the freeway of my transit

cos I'm an ordinary Joe who runs out in the cold and takes off all his clothes

you're just an ordinary Jane who runs out in the rain and is never sen or heard from again

so yes it might be mighty neat to party on the beach of my tranquility

and if perhaps you'd be so kind so as to cast a line into the oily depths of my crooked mind

and if it isn't such a chore please would you close the door on all the pretty things I wasted my life searching for.
