Doo doo doo doo doo doo

Watching TOTP2 its Duran Duran night. Reliving my younger years singing along (yep still know all the words to Hungry like the Wolf) and thinking jesus I'm getting on a bit. Duran Duran are like 50 and I'm 40 next year - OK still got to get to 39 later this year but the BIG 4-0 is looming.....I used to have such a massive crush on John Taylor even though his real name is Nigel, I loved him soooooo much. I thought our children would be beautiful and tall with square chins. But I have have ended up with the Curly Haired Beauty, Thing 1 is a mini-me with a big fat moon face and Thing 2 who looks just like his sister and is going curly haired too! 


Simon Le Bon could never dance but bless made it up with his enthusiasm, Nick Rhodes always had great eye make-up, Roger and Andy were not on my lust radar. Ah they don't make tunes like they used to (or mime so badly on tv). 


"You've gone too far this time"
But I'm dancing on the valentine
I tell you somebody's fooling around
With my chances on the dangerline
I'll cross that bridge when I find it
Another day to make my stand
High time is no time for deciding
If I should find a helping hand
[CHORUS]
So why don't you use it?
Try not to bruise it
Buy time don't lose it
The reflex is an only child he's waiting in the park
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark

I'm on a ride and I want to get off
But they won't slow down the roundabout
I sold the Renoir and the TV set
Don't want to be around when this gets out
[CHORUS]

Oh the reflex what a game he's hiding all the cards
The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre
Evey little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark
