    Lyrics

    She'd brought along the oranges
    He'd brought the tea
    They'd both brought along a sick-bag just in case

    The plate of chicken sandwiches
    Were lovely they agreed
    And I watched him spit the bits into her face

    'Do you love me like you used to' he sighs
    'I love you twice as much' she replies
    They were on the train to Venice, where else?
    I think tonight I fancy myself

    I'd rather drink that toast to my own health
    I think tonight I'd rather love myself
    And if you drink that drink to your own health
    I think tonight I'd rather love myself

    Later in the evening
    The sun came rolling down
    And they talked about their fantasies and fears

    Between the heavy breathing
    And those lighter licking sounds
    I heard him whisper this question in her ear

    'Would you still love me if I lost my legs?'
    'I'd see that you were loved and you were fed'
    'I end up in a car crash almost dead'
    'For richer and for partly severed head'

    I'd rather drink that toast to my own health
    I think tonight I'd rather love myself
    And if you drink that drink to your own health
    I think tonight I'd rather love myself

    The neighbours ask them out but they flatly refuse
    'We're saving up for a world-wide cruise'
    With a choice between loneliness and love-sick QE2's
    Well tonight I choose - self-abuse

    A four-pack in the fridge
    A good book on the shelf
    I think tonight I'd rather love myself
