lyrics

Their eyes, they met outside the toilet near a crowded dancefloor
She told him, no, in fact, she’d never really been here before
She’d been looking for her friend in a corner unexplored
He’d been going for a wander, he was basically bored
A pair of bar crossed lovers
Don’t tell me Romance is Dead

The sound of Britney filled the room as they enjoyed their first kiss
And you could see that pretty soon it would be her place or his
He told her that his name was Darren, she said her name was Liz
He took her bag and held her coat because she needed a piss
He picked up all the cab fare
Don’t tell me Romance is Dead

And if Romeo were here instead of knocking round Verona
He’d be in for a shock
He’d stand there fingering the lime stuck in his bottle of Corona
‘Til it went 3 o clock.

He made a brew and moved some clothes so she was able to sit
And then he slid up right beside her and they kissed for a bit
But when they moved into the bathroom’s when they got down to it
She even let him takes some pictures coz she thought he was fit
He only showed his brother
Don’t tell me Romance is Dead.

And if Romeo were here instead of knocking round Verona
He’d be in for a shock
He’d stand there fingering the lime stuck in the top of his Corona
‘Til it went 3 o clock.

Their eyes, they met outside the toilet near a crowded dancefloor
She told him, no, in fact, she’d never really been here before
She’d been looking for her friend in a corner unexplored
He’d been going for a wander he was basically bored
A pair of bar crossed lovers
Don’t tell me Romance is Dead
