LyricsEdit

You bought me some chocolates
And you bought me a rose
And you brought me a paper bag
And you brought me a lamp

Thank you for the chocolates
Thank you for the rose
Thank you for the paper bag
Thank you for the lamp

Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need

You brought me a sofa
And you brought me some books
And you brought me a filing cabinet
And you brought me a Panasonic DX-4500

thank you for the sofa
thank you for the books
thanks for the filing cabinet
I don't know what I
I don't know what I 
Ever did without it

Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need

You came by, and you came in
And you let the wind in
It must be cold outside
We stared out through the sliding glass door
But I'd forgotten what we were looking for

Thank you for coming by
It's nice to see you once in a while
Thanks for the coat I forgot to mention
I've been freezing in here
I've been freezing in here

Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need
Now I have everything I need, yeah
