The Monochrome Set

I wanna be yours
John Cooper Clarke and My Dog Sighs

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust

If you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
when you want to sail away

Let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out
I wanna be the electric heater
you’ll get cold without

I wanna be your setting lotion
hold your hair in deep devotion
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean

that’s how deep is my devotion

John Cooper Clarke will be appearing at Portsmouth New Theatre Royal June 23rd

Words by national treasure: Dr John Cooper Clarke
Art by emerging national treasure: My Dog Sighs
