​About You

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Sleepless Nights (1982).

Hull

Well I hear you're going with a bankers clerk
Lives in a big house over-looking in the park
And Daddy got a blue BMW
Second hand but nearly new.

Well he don't know, what I know, about you
He don't know, what I know, about you.

Maybe he'll take you to the discothek
Drinking, dancing and a quiet 'neck'
Then he'll take you home if it's not too far
A goodnight kiss in Daddy's second hand car.

But he don't know, what I know, about you
He don't know, what I know, about you.

Will you tell him, you used to love a bad man
Used to love a sad man, not so long ago.
Will you tell him, tell him what you did then
Or would you to rather, he didn't know.

When you married, mortgaged then you have your first kid
What a gas it would be if you named him after me
Bended (?) baby in the bankers club
Would you keep him in the dock or would you bounce him on your knee.

He'll never know, what I know, about you
He'll never know, what I know, about you.

Will you tell him, you used to love a bad man
Used to love a sad man, not so long ago.
Will you tell him, tell him what you did then
Or would you rather, he didn't know.

Will you tell him, you used to love a bad man
Used to love a sad man, not so long ago.
Will you tell him, tell him what you did then
Or wuld you rather, he didn't know.

I wish you well along your winding way
Hope the sun always shines on you.
Give my regards to Papa, Mama, too
I know they didn't like me, but what can you do.

They don't know, no no no, about you
They never know, no no no, about you
He don't know, no no no, what I know (about you)
He don't know, no no no, about you (repeat 5 x)
