Pinocchio 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      Swallow me say swallow me 
      Take me to your nest of china dolls 
      Call me up your closest friend 
      Join me in my neighbourhood patrol 
      Happy me say happy me 
      Chinese whispers bounce from ear to ear 
      The night is young I feel so old 
      See the stars above the night's so clear 

      I used to come home late and lie, lie, lie 
      She used to see through that but still I tried 
      I couldn't cover up the tracks I'd made 
      That's how it used to be but not today 

      Race around I race around 
      Focused on the here and now with you 
      Every smile's a valentine 
      What harm can a little loving do 
      Fall about then fall about 
      Drunk on love I can't stand on my feet 
      Before I try please take my hand 
      I've so many words left I should eat 

      Tickle me please tickle me 
      Laughter climbs the walls above our bed 
      This night we have is built on love 
      Help me so I do not lose the thread 

      Swallow me say swallow me 
      Happy me say happy me 
      Race around I race around 
      Fall about then fall about 
      Tickle me say tickle me 
      Love me do sing love me do
