Lyrics

...I used to love you, I used to walk the line
I used to love you, though you were in decline
But then I left you to be with someone else
Oh I left you to be with myself

I used to love you, 'cause you were where it's at
I used to love you, and I would be your cat
I wore your hairstyle, I tried to look like you
But then I left you, because I'd learned from you

I'm going to Cambridge, I'll take that narrow train
I'm going to Cambridge, then I'll come down again
The police station is still on Parker's Piece
It hasn't shifted, nor have the police
They do their job, and I do mine

I used to love you, I loved your liquid voice
I used to love you, because I had no choice
But now you're crazy, and I myself am straight
And every child must avoid its parent's fate
