I made my selection from the lonely hit parade 
In the town where time stood still 
I was feeling very little pain 
Until some joker played "Almost Persuaded" 
Now every girl I see 
Looks so much prettier to me 
My faithfulness has faded 
And their looks established daggers 
And the conversation heated 
Since the boys had all been late 
I found them walking round defeated 
In the town where time stood still 

Somebody in charge must have pretended 
The future's been suspended 
And I say I don't want trouble 
But I find myself back in it 
In the town where time stood still 
I am the man of the minute 

Teach me to say "I love you" 
I'll teach you to say "You will do" 
In the town where time stood still 
A way that I can find a little girl 
To wind me up with all the usual spells 

There's nothing else to do but rearrange somebody's future 
And check your figures in the till 
The bar is full of girls just like the creature with the curse 
And the food is just like cabaret and vice versa 
In the town where time stood still 
Just as my heart went down sinking 
I found the town was shrinking 

And suddenly I saw her through the smoke and empty beers 
In the town where time stood still 
She might have well have waited years 

Now I suppose we did some things we used to do 
But no amount of darkness could ever turn her into you 

And so I woke up in the town where time stood still 
With a headache and a heartache 
And a handful of pills 
A welcome mat, a scandal rag and unpaid bills 

With her hand inside her handbag 
The sign says "please wait to be seated" 
I only want a cup of coffee 
I know you can't have your cake and eat it 
In the town where time stood still 

Did you hear the news today? 
It's all bad; they'll be howling after sunset 
With a headache and a heartache 
And an hour or two to kill 
I only wish we were together
In the town where time stood still (fade out)
