Honeymoon Croon (1979 Version)

Honeymoon croon tonight
Sew my sock tonight
I say who’s on the tiles tonight
Lurking lipstick tickle fickle
Well Marilyn’s on
Send her by air mail, par avion
Certificate ecstasy in my head
Hire out Sybil Vane for my bed
Croon croon tonight
Honeymoon tonight
Sew my sock tonight, tonight

The stranger arrives, the gun still warm
20 dollars for the (???) used to form
Turns out to be an old trick from her
Senior service, senior service
Senior service, senior service
Senior service, senior service

She insists on tying down
She keeps me perfectly helpless
Like a bird in a menagerie
I’d ask you about the hole in her dress
Forget my head, we’ll fix the bed
We’ll get the (???)

Honeymoon croon tonight
Sew my sock tonight
I say who’s on the tiles tonight
I say honeymoon tonight

Marilyn’s fading fast better get straight
Marilyn’s fading fast better get straight
The minx’s on the side board in a state
It picked up on funny thoughts, mummy’s here
I’ll be her good boy, I’ll never fear
Better fix her drink tonight bed time’s come
Must blot out this urge to use my gun

Honeymoon tonight
Croon croon tonight

Honeymoon croon tonight
Sew my sock tonight
I say who’s on the tiles tonight
I say honeymoon
Honeymoon…tonight

NOTE: This song underwent a few changes before becoming the final version recorded on Burning From The Inside. There are probably errors and things missing in the above. Why Bauhaus waited four years to officially record this song is not truly known, but given how ill Peter was during the sessions for Burning From The Inside, they may have elected to bring out this song to keep things on schedule.
