Give Us A Ring

Well now, what's the food like, have you slept well?
And do the bugs bite other people?
And did the banker give you money?
And I saw on the postcard that you wrote it
On a beach or on your pillow,
Or on a book or something stiff.

Give us a ring when you get back,
Try to bring me something back.
With the customs there,
Make sure you don't get caught
With the things that you bought.

Jeffrey, he bought a cactus for the kitchen.
And the rabbit's been complaining,
And we sat out on the lawn.
Well now, I have to go to catch the postman
'Cause I'm going to the pictures.
Lots of love, I bet you're brown.

Give us a ring when you get back,
Try to bring me something back.
With the customs there,
Make sure you don't get caught
With the things that you bought.

Give us a ring when you get back,
Try to bring me something back.
With the customs there,
Make sure you don't get caught
With the things that you bought.

Give us a ring when you get back
Give us a ring when you get back
Give us a ring when you get back
Give us a ring....
Don't get caught...
