Wicked and Cruel 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 
      I had the rug pulled from under my feet 
      But I didnít feel a thing 
      I canít believe the luck I seem to have 
      And the joy that good luck brings 
      When I die Iíll return as a housefly 
      And land upon her wall 
      So I can see who sheíll end up with 
      If itís anyone at all 
      Did I say that 
      How could anyone be so wicked and cruel 

      I sat and listened to the radio 
      A landscape of moving noise 
      She was busy looking through the curtains 
      Her nose in a distant void 
      Then I thought I would come back as a spider 
      Because she hates them so much 
      They get sprayed down the bathroom plughole 
      Can I expect the same touch 
      Maybe not then 
      Because beneath it all weíre wicked and cruel 

      Shut up, listen to the radio 

      I canít help feeling Iíve been stepped on 
      She likes to kick like a mule 
      Did I say that 
      How could anyone be so wicked and cruel 

      If I come back as her would I love me 
      How could anyone be so wicked and cruel 

      She likes to think Iím a fool 
      Two fools in love 
      How could anyone be so wicked and cruel
