Modern Love Lyrics

Hey, I’m feeling so dirty, you’re looking so clean
And all you can give is a spin in your washing machine
I fly off to Rome to my prima bella
She leave me in the rain with a telescopic umbrella
Aah the pain
Modern love can be a strain

I trusted my Venus was untouched in her shell
But the pearls, the pearls in her oyster were as tacky
as hell
For Lady Godiva I came incognito
Her driver had stolen her red hot magneto
Aah the pain
Modern love can be a strain

I don’t know why they leave me in the lurch
To carry on the search
It’s driving me up the wall
Pity when I have so much passion
Romance is out of fashion
Can’t handle modern love at all

Hey I worship Diana by the light of the moon
When I pull out my pipe she scream out of tune
In Paris my heart sink when I see my Mona Lisa
She gives me the wink, then she show me the freezer
Aah the pain
Modern love can be a strain
Aah the pain
Modern love can be a strain
