Ian Dury - (You're My) Inspiration Lyrics




Darling (yes, darling?)
Nothing, darling
Just darling, darling

You're my inspiration, so welcome to my heart
Since making your acquaintance I've made a brand new start
I'm telling you I love you, what else can I say?
'Cos you're my inspiration in every single way

You're always optimistic, you never be blasé
And when I'm in a moody you make it go away
I've never had a minute of horrible jealousy, jealousy
Anyone that you like will be okay with me

'Cos you're my inspiration, my reason and my rhyme
From the first impressions until the end of time
I'm telling you I love you, what else can I say?
'Cos you're my inspiration in every single way

Well darling, that just about sums things up
And I'm sure you know by now, I think you're very special
So (lower darling) So... snarling darling? (stop it pet), alright

(Inspiration)

You're my inspiration, my reason and my rhyme
From the first impressions until the end of time
I'm telling you I love you, what else can I say?
'Cos you're my inspiration in every single way

(Inspiration)

Since making your acquaintance (inspiration) the world's a better place (inspiration)
Your confidence is catching (inspiration) I can feel it in my face (inspiration)
It's almost out of order (inspiration) so beautiful with you (inspiration)
I'm going to do my utmost (inspiration) to make it all stay cool (inspiration)

'Cos you're my inspiration (inspiration, inspiration)
You're my inspiration (inspiration, inspiration)
You're my inspiration (inspiration, inspiration)

    Very clever by Ian writing a song about falling in love and then falling out of love.I think these were the first and last tracks on the Album,must get it out and check.Forgot how good these tracks are,Really glad you came is quite sad .

  7. dolphntfc

    Dury hated this album but i like it, Ed Speight on ther guitar is fooking quality

    TheClockwise770

    Yes I have to agree with you there, Ian's wondeful evocative lyrics and his delivery make this a true gem. Best listened to driving along the one of those lonely roads in the depth of winter in a nice warm car .

  8. Lime Street Songs

    Underrated album, one of my favourites x

  9. derrymadness

    Nice one...
