lyrics

Sweet Ivy, Sweet Ivy, where did it go wrong?
Well I guess that we knew that it would all along
Could we have tried harder, Could we get along?
Sweet Ivy..
Alicante, Alicante, the place where we met
When I fell at your feet, in some bar, soaking wet!
Had you any sense girl, You’d have turned around and left!
Alicante..

Sooner or later you’ll get kicked to the kerb,
Where even the smartest of fools will observe,
Whether you lead or whether you serve,
Surrender you must to life’s great learning curve.

White Russians, White Russians, were all that we’d drink
And the glasses piled high, all over the sink.
Between all those glasses, we’d no time to think
White Russians..
Paranoia, Paranoia was bound to set in,
Who was that young barber? Was she looking at him?
Soon the green fishes around your head swim!
Paranoia!

Sooner or later you’ll get kicked to the kerb,
Where even the smartest of fools will observe,
Whether you lead or whether you serve,
Surrender you must to life’s great learning curve.

Misadventure, Misadventure, the court did record
The way that they found you, wrapped up in that cord.
The scandal was something I could not afford
Misadventure
Sweet Ivy, Sweet Ivy, around your grave grows.
It shelters your name from the rain and the snow.
When I get out, I’ll come say hello!
Sweet Ivy! Sweet Ivy!

Sooner or later you’ll get kicked to the kerb,
Where even the smartest of fools will observe,
Whether you lead or whether you serve,
Surrender you must to life’s great learning curve.

Whether you lead or whether you serve,
Surrender you must to life’s great learning curve.
