She said “I came here in the fall”
I said “Do you mean the autumn?”
She said Does this lead to the freeway?”
I said “Do you mean the main road?”
She said “Will you look at my transmission?”
I said ‘Do you mean your gearbox?”
I said “How’d you dent the bonnet?”
She said ‘Do you mean the hood?”

She said “You mean a parking lot?”
I said “I’m opposite a chemist”
She said “Do you mean a drugstore?”

That was when I lost the plot

Oh what a case of miscommunication
But I guess we’re much the same under the skin
We’re only trying to have an Anglo-American conversation
But the guy from the CIA keeps listening in

I said “I should have brought a torch”
She said “Do you mean a flashlight?”
I said “I’ll look in the boot”
She said “Do you mean the trunk?”
I said “Don’t slip on the pavement”
She said “Do you mean the sidewalk?”
She said “I’ve done a Daniel Boone”
I said “Do you mean you’re drunk?”

I said “What’s that on your badge?”
She said “Do you mean my button?
I’m a day late and a dollar short.”
I said “Do you mean the birds have flown?”
She said “Can I plead the fifth?”
I said “You mean avoid the question?”
She said “Can I take a rain check?”
I said “You mean can you postpone/”

Oh what a case of miscommunication
But I guess we’re much the same under the skin
We’re only trying to have an Anglo-American conversation
But the guy from the NSA keeps listening in

I said “I just heard the postman?”
She said “Do you mean the mailman?”
I said “My neighbour is a con man”
She said “You mean he’s on the grift?”
She said “Is that your trashcan?”
I said “Do you mean my dustbin?”
She said “Is there an elevator?”
I said “Do you mean a lift?”

She said “Take off your pants”
I said “Do you mean my trousers?”
I said “What’s in your handbag?”
She said “Do you mean my purse?”
She said “Are you two an item?”
I said “You mean are we a couple?”
She said “Put your hands on my ass”
I said “Do you mean your arse?”

Oh what a case of miscommunication
But I guess we’re much the same under the skin
We keep on trying to have an Anglo-American conversation
But the man from Uncle Sam keeps listening in

Oh what a case of miscommunication
But I guess we’re much the same under the skin
We both use an American cloud to store our information
But the man says he’s allowed to keep peeping in
