N.B. Please do not read the lyrics whilst listening to the recordings

No wonder you're looking thin when all that you live on
Is lipgloss and cigarrettes and scraps at the end of the day
When he's given the rest to someone with long black hair
All those nights in making such a mess of the bed
Oh you never ever wanted to go home he says he wants you so you may as well
Hang around for a while call your Dad on the phone
He changed his mind last Monday so you've gotta leave by Sunday yeah
Oh you've lost your lipgloss honey oh yeah
Now nothing you do can turn him on there's something wrong
You had it once but now it's gone
And you feel such a fool
For laughing at bad jokes
And putting up with all of his friends
And kissing in public
What are they gonna say
When they run into you again
That your stomach looks bigger
And your eyes are just holes in your face
And it rains every day
But when it doesn't
The sun makes you feel worse anyway
Though you knew there was no way
It was going to last forever it still shook you
When he told you in a letter that he didn't want to see you
You nearly lost your mind oh yeah
You've lost your lipgloss...

Lyrics by Jarvis Cocker, music by Pulp.
From the album His 'N' Hers
Released as a single with the b-sides Deep Fried In Kelvin and You're A Nightmare

Welcome to the new era.
Now we all live on garage food....
We might look rough but we've got beautiful insides. But everything's going to
be alright just as long as you mind the low-flying televisions.
