Lyrics

CHORUS (x2)
  Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
  If you stay you won't be sorry
  'Cause we believe in you
  Soon you'll grow so take a chance
  With a couple of Kooks
  Hung up on romancing

We bought a lot of things to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
On what to say to people when they pick on you
'Cause if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty Kookie too

CHORUS

And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies or the cads
'Cause I'm not much cop at punching
Other people's Dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

CHORUS (repeat ad inf.)
