No Show Jones

No Show Jones
(Difford/Dunnery/Soan)

Was it fate that made it happen
Was it just the way it was
The day we met
My loneliness was lost, all gone
Did we fall from the same orchard
Could we write that script again
It’s a simple life
In a complicated way, that I am

We were The Captain and Tennille
We were Lennon and Mc Cartney
We were sometimes so surreal
But we never missed a party
Party of one

From the Marquee to the Garden
With a glass held both hands
It’s a celebration
No one understands, but me

We were the Monkeys
We were The Captain and Tennille
We were Lennon and Mc Cartney
We were sometimes so surreal
But we never missed a party
Party of one

I was living in the back of my mind
Rolling Stone were saying we were so sublime
I couldn’t hang about and be great with
Compared to others we never got covers on tunes

We were Simon and Garfunkle
We were the Monkeys
We were The Captain and Tennille
We were Lennon and Mc Cartney
We were sometimes so surreal
But we never missed a party
Party of one

Jumping from the tour bus
Neon everywhere
Running down the corridors
With fingers in your hair
Kiss the girls and make them cry
And leave them all hanging there
