      About "Greetings to the New Brunette"

      Lyrics for Billy Bragg - "Greetings to the New Brunette"

      Shirley,
      It's quite exciting to be sleeping here in this new room
      Shirley,
      You're my reason to get out of bed before noon
      Shirley,
      You know when we sat out on the fire escape talking
      Shirley,
      What did you say about running before we were walking

      Sometimes when we're as close as this
      It's like we're in a dream
      How can you lie there and think of england
      When you don't even know who's in the team

      Shirley,
      Your sexual politics have left me all of a muddle
      Shirley,
      We are joined in the ideological cuddle

      I'm celebrating my love for you
      With a pint of beer and a new tattoo
      And if you haven't noticed yet
      I'm more impressionable when my cement is wet

      Politics and pregnancy
      Are debated as we empty our glasses
      And how i love those evening classes

      Shirley,
      You really know how to make a young man angry
      Shirley,
      Can we get through the night without mentioning family

      The people from your church agree
      It's not much of a career
      Trying the handles of parked cars
      Whoops, there goes another year
      Whoops, there goes another pint of beer

      Here we are in our summer years
      Living on icecream and chocolate kisses
      Would the leaves fall from the trees
      If i was your old man and you were my missus

      Shirley,
      Give my greetings to the new brunette
