Lyrics

Every night I sit here by my window [Robbie]
Window [Jane]
Staring at the lonely avenue [Robbie]
Avenue [Jane]
Watching lovers holding' hands 'n laughing' [Robbie]
Ha-Ha-Ha [Jane]
Thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie]

Thinking about things [Jane]
Like a walk in the park [Robbie]
Things [Jane]
Like a kiss in the dark [Robbie]
Things [Jane]
Like a sailboat ride [Robbie]
Yeah yeah [Jane]
What about the night we cried [Robbie]

Things like a lovers vow [Robbie]
Things that we don't do now [Robbie]
Thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie]

Memories are all I have to cling to [Robbie]
Cling to [Jane]
And heartaches are the friends I'm talking to [Robbie]
But you got me now [Jane]
When I'm not thinking of-a just how much I love you [Robbie]
I love you too [Jane]
I'm thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie]
We used to do [Jane]

Thinking about things [Jane]
Like a walk in the park [Robbie]
Things [Jane]
Like a kiss in the dark [Robbie]
Things [Jane]
Like a sailboat ride [Robbie]
Yeah-yeah [Jane]
What about the night we cried [Robbie]

Things like a lovers vow [Robbie & Jane]
Things that we don't do now [Robbie & Jane]
Thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie & Jane]

Still can hear the jukebox softly playin' [Robbie]
Playing [Jane]
And the face I see each day belongs to you [Robbie]
Belongs to you [Jane]
There's not a single sound then there's nobody else around [Robbie]
Ooohhh [Jane]
It's a-just me thinking of the things we used to do [Robbie]

Thinking about things [Jane]
Like a walk in the park [Robbie]
Lots of things [Jane]
Like a kiss in the dark [Robbie]
Yeah things [Jane]
Like a sailboat ride [Robbie]
Wow wow [Jane]
What about the night we cried [Robbie]

Things like a lovers vow [Robbie & Jane]
Things that we don't do now [Robbie & Jane]
Thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie & Jane]
And heartaches are the friends I'm talking to [Robbie & Jane]
You got me thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie & Jane]
I hope so [Jane]
Thinking about the things we used to do [Robbie & Jane]

[Spoken:] You are all shit now [Jane]
No start that on me on this album [Robbie]
Right then, why are you doing it like that at that time [Jane]
Well from start to finish then you're saying that I'm wrong [Robbie]
You said, you said I had to think about Kylie when I was doing this and I was [Jane]
You obviously weren't thinking about Kylie, were you thinking about Jean Whitfield [Robbie]
I can't hear you now, I can't hear you [Jane]
Well, you were thinking about Jean Whitfield, that who's you thinking about [Robbie]
I had to think about somebody and you told me Kylie [Jane]
Well listen, you just came in wrong and then it got progressively worse from there [Robbie]
What?!?! [Jane]
You started wrong and then it just went worse [Robbie]
Can't hear you, 'cos knows [Jane]
It went bad, bad, bad right towards [Robbie]
Who said bad? When you sang [Jane]
No when you sang [Robbie]
No [Jane]
Yes you can baby, don't look you you started this on your last album [Robbie]
I don't want to do anything to do with it, I'm going goodbye [Robbie]
