    Lyrics

    Well the dice that I roll never seems to land on six
    And that 48 card pack is short of some of my old tricks
    The horse I bet on all those years ago
    Is probably still running round the track
    Like the marriage that I gambled on
    I'm due my money back, I'm due my money back

    We could've learned, we could've burned from the firework love ignites
    But that sparkler of romance proved impossible to light
    If your country code or your green cross code
    It can leave a lasting mark
    History books have showed follow safety code
    And stamp out your final spark

    Well the husband that I married once
    I should've kept him in a cage
    Kept him sitting waiting there
    To show the tortoise middle-age
    Cause you never back an animal that struggles on two legs
    I'd rather back a stray with three than one that sits up and just begs
    Than one that sits up and just begs

    We could've learned, we could've burned from the firework love ignites
    But that sparkler of romance proved impossible to light
    If your country code or your green cross code
    It can leave a lasting mark
    History books have showed follow safety code
    And stamp out your final spark
    We could've learned, we could've burned from the firework love ignites
    But that sparkler of romance proved impossible to light
    If your country code or your green cross code
    It can leave a lasting mark
    History books have showed follow safety code
    And stamp out your final spark

    Milk will curdle, cheese go off, expensive wine mature
    Kids grow up, parents down, husbands turn to tragic bore
    Receipts and life insurance all very well, but don't fully cover hate
    So you can't return this idiot when he's past his sell-by date
    Milk will curdle, cheese go off, expensive wine mature
    Kids grow up, parents down, husbands turn to tragic bore
    Receipts and life insurance all very well, but don't fully cover hate
    So you can't return this idiot when he's past his sell-by date
