​I Nearly Died Laughing

This song is by The Blow Monkeys and appears on the album Animal Magic (1986).

Original video
When I saw the face of what was once beauty
I was shaken and torn
But they didn't give a shit about it
Had no desire to be free

When I heard about the scene in the city
Well, I knew I had to leave
But I couldn't find the words to express my thoughts
You know that never came easy

All that was special to me
Was not the sand or the sea
And if you really do believe
Killing yourself, baby, don't impress me

Ooh, and it was such a crime
To see you sticking it in again

I nearly died laughing
And I'm not coming back here again
I nearly died laughing
No, you won't see my face ever again
I nearly died laughing
And, I'm not coming back here again

All that was special to me
Was not the sand or the scenery
And if you really do believe
Killing yourself over me
Well, I...

I nearly died laughing
But, I'm not coming back here again
I nearly died laughing
No you won't see my face ever again
And I nearly died laughing
But, I'm not coming back here again

Ooh, lady, lady
