"The Man They Love To Hate" Lyrics

The Stranglers

They woke to grey English morning
And to a strange honeymoon
The girl who gave him all her love
And the man who said it still wouldn't do

His parents always worked hard
Never went to bed late
And though they were God's own people
They're still the ones he loves to hate

He never wanted to
Suffer this fate
All the girls have fallen for
The man they love to hate

The city is an animal
It snores and by day it roars
And though he loved to hate it
He couldn't live without its flaws

With pastel curtains moaning
At a thousand harsh words - then hush
The girl she wanted to leave
Because she loved the man too much

He never wanted to
Suffer this fate
All the girls have fallen for
The man they love to hate

His father was a fighter
And he practised on his son
His mother was just some furniture
Who'd lost the will to run

The girl she wrote him a farewell note
And though he probably didn't care too much
The girl she finally left him
Because she loved the man too much
