Original video
You're a girl in this vicinity
I'm a dog without a collar on
And this cattle-market cabaret
Is the Sabbath every Saturday

I'm full of wit and chivalry
Until you've given in to me
I'm a dog without a collar on
You're a girl in this vicinity

Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change

You're a girl in this vicinity
Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change


It's a silent taxi ride away
But it's everything to get you there
You'll know when you are bitten-shy
But still you will return my stare

From the crush of blushing brides-to-be
You barely have a blossom on
Your eyes betray your diaries
You're a girl in this vicinity

Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change

You're a girl in this vicinity
Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change

Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change
Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change

Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change
Bitten by the tailfly
Too many times to change


I'll take you home
Get you on your own
I'll take you home
Get you on your own

I'll take you home
Get you on your own
I'll take you home
Get you on your own
