WE ONLY WANTED TO BE WANTED
(WE NEVER WANTED TO BE HAD)

We always said it made us glad
One plus one equals more than two.
But you never knew how to add.
Your ghost has now replaced you,
But our house is no longer haunted.
I'm no longer feeling sad.
You only wanted to be wanted.
You never wanted to be had.

We always said it drove us mad,
The way we missed each rendezvous
Chasing after every fad
That came down the avenue
And left us feeling only taunted
Without the thrill of being bad.
We only wanted to be wanted.
We never wanted to be had.

I put my money where your mouth is.
There's no doubt now where the clout is.

I always said it was our Dad
Who disappeared into the blue
With all the girls who were clad
In nothing but one golden shoe
Who kept us from the wealth they flaunted
Just because it made them glad
They only wanted to be wanted.
They never wanted to be had.
