Peyton Place  
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
      In Peyton Place my heart now beats 
      And floor boards creak where an angel sleeps 

      Her hair hung across her face 
      Like a bush hangs across a wall 
      She was short with a tidy smile 
      I could hear temptation call 
      From a fly in her ointment 
      To the big feather in her cap 
      It's a small world we discover 
      I had once worked for her dad 
      I was in gear making up stories 
      And we laughed at each other's tales 
      I watched her lips I wanted to kiss them 
      My train of thought went off the rails 

      In Peyton Place my heart now beats 
      And floor boards creak where an angel sleeps 
      In Peyton Place 
      I lie awake and hear the sound 
      That the angels make 
      In Peyton Place 

      The party was now ending 
      So she gave me a lift back home 
      Somehow I felt so nervous 
      She drove so slowly on the road 
      Next thing I knew she was in my arms 
      Her hair was all over my face 
      I brushed it aside she invited me in 
      Now my heart beats in Peyton Place 

      Her hair hung across her face like 
      A bush hangs across a wall

  • Chords
  • FROM THE ALBUM: Frank.
  • COMPILATIONS: Excess Moderation.
  • From the Excess Moderation sleeve notes. Glenn: From Frank, one of my favourite moments from the end of mid-period Squeeze. Jools' piano solo on this is nothing short of genius. Chris: Amazing piano solo from our Jools who was in the middle of being David Frost, flying back and forth across the pond during tours of the States and recording TV shows in Newcastle. Peyton Place is in Greenwich, next to the police station.
