I wish you would have smiled in the bakery,
or sat on a tatty settee,
at a mutual friends gathering,
And the more you keep on looking the more it's hard to take,
love we're in stale mate.
To never meet is surely where we're bound,
there's one in every town,
just there to grind you down.
I wish I would have seen you in the post office,
well maybe I did and I missed it,
too busy with the mind on clever lines.
Why not the rounders pitch or the canteen?
You're slacking love, where have you been?
you had to go and wait until tonight
...to give me the invite
don't worry its alright
I wish I would have seen you in the arcade,
sipping on a lemonade,
In a paper cup and chewing on the straw
And I wish I'd seen you in the bakery,
But if I'd seen you in the bakery,
You probably wouldn't have seen me.
