lyrics

When she smiles, I think of you.
When I lay her down, I try to do all of those things that you loved.
When she moans it takes me back
To all the times I told you that there’d be nobody but you.
And I’ve always been faithful to you, in my own way.
Of all the girls I’ve loved and tossed,
You’re the only one that I think of
The few nights that I sleep alone.
If that strikes you as a bit unclean
You’ll be glad to know I haven’t dreamed
About you since you were my own.
And I’ve always been faithful to you, in my own way.
Every week I put a little note
And a big cheque in an envelope.
There’s a mailbox right outside my door.
I lick the seal so tenderly,
Put on more stamps than I really need,
I’d still do it if it wasn’t the law.
And I’ve always been faithful to you, in my own way.
