Gilbert O'Sullivan The Thing Is Lyrics

Last updated:

Oh I was walking down the street
When a man came up to me
And said don't I know you?
And I said, well, you might do
But the thing is ooh, the thing is
I don't know you-

Now I was driving in my car
And I had not gone very far
When from out of nowhere
I thought I saw a big bear
But the thing is ooh, the thing is
No bear was there -

Did somebody here just mention (Hong Kong)
Isn't that the place where Suzi (Wong's form)
I saw the film (and did you like it?)
Well, to be honest I didn't mind it.

Oh, I was sitting back in my chair
When a man came on the air
And said, well, hello there
And, I said, well, hello there
But the thing is (but the thing is)
Ooh, the thing is (ooh, the thing is)

I don't have a radio
I don't have a radio
But I've got a sister in Crewe
I don't have a radio
I don't have a radio
And I've got a brother there, too.
Do you?
Interlude
That's all for now
But before you turn to the other side
You can go out
With a taste of the music I'll provide
There are songs that I've written recently like...
(Extract)
And some that were written previously
Why not hear-Me
