The Austerity Of Love
Paul Heaton Lyrics


Got my vow, got my cor
And he's waiting at the door
For me
Making things secure
For me
When I return

Got my needs, got my love
And it fits me like a glove
And it's dripping from above
Like the candle it burns

Old brown bear and honey bee
Pass me by and wink at me
Realize that what I got
Is too much for one honey pot

Sugar is the centre
Of the honeycomb
Sweeter still the heart
That actually owns my own

Got my schmaltz, got my cheese
Got me down on my knees
Got me begging you please
The obesity of love

The propensity of love
The depravity of love
The austerity of love

Got my saccharin, my sweet
And it's next to me on seat
And everything I eat seems to
Taste so damn sour

Got my praise, got my prayer
And it's getting everywhere
Like your god isn't there for me
Just this higher power

Old march hare and kangaroo
Tip their hats and 'how d'you do?'
Recognize it in my stride
Love is skipping by my side

Sugar is the centre
Of the honeycomb
Sweeter still the heart
That actually owns my own


Got my schmaltz
Got my cheese
Got me down on my knees
Got me begging you please
The obesity of love

The propensity
The depravity of love
The austerity of love

Pitcher plant and Venus trap
Give me five and slap my back
They can tell just from my smile
I'll be staying for a while

Sugar is the centre
Of the honeycomb
Sweeter still the heart
That actually owns my own

Got my schmaltz
Got my cheese
Got me down on my knees
Got me begging you please
The obesity of love

The propensity
The depravity of love
The austerity of love

I preordered this album from 'amazon and got it about a month ago. I consider Paul Heaton a pop artist and it's good to know he's still having fun crafting pop songs after all these years. He has an unbelievable arsenal of pop gems to be very proud of. I think I have all but two of his albums, and that's alot.
