(Really creative lyrics deleted :))

OK, the actual lyrics, as he does them in the studio, are as
        A       A sus     A     A sus
A rainy afternoon
             A      A sus  A   A sus
Spent in the warmest room
She lay before me and said
           D                               A    Asus4   A  A sus
"Yes it's true that I have seen some naked men"

As she made for the door
Leaving me on the floor
I wish I'd done biology
For an urge within me wanted to do it then


And here she comes again
And I'm sitting on my hands
And she sings to me that siren song
         E                   D
Here she comes again and I'm biting my lip
                A      A sus   A    Asus4
But it won't be long

As Brother Barry said as he married Marion
The wife has three great attributes, Intelligence, a Swiss Army
   knife and charm
But that's not enough some times
And she did speak her mind
And told them all that she believed
The only way to disarm is to disarm


Bm                    F#m
I know people whose Idea of fun
            D             A            D         A
Is throwing stones in the river in the afternoon sun
   Bm             F#m
Oh let me be as free as them
Don't let her pass this way again

Instrumental, play chords to the verses

Though you cannot be blamed, but I've become inflamed
With thoughts of lust and thoughts of power
thoughts of love and thoughts of Chairman Mao
We have such little time at your place or mine
I can't wait till we take our blood tests
Oh baby, let's take our blood tests now

Chorus again, then

A    A sus       A      A sus      E      A
     It won't be long

Admittedly, what Uncle Bill says in concert is different.  He tends
to substitute "hairy" for "naked" in verse one and "drugs tests" for
"blood tests" during gigs, as  William judiciously notes.

"She said it was only a figment of speech..."
