"There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy"

If you saw spaceships
Over Glasgow?
Would you fear them?

Every aircraft
Every camera
Is a wish that

"Punctured bicycle
On a hillside desolate
Will nature make a man of me yet?

When in this charming car

Why pamper life's complexity
When the leather runs smooth
On the passenger's seat?

I would go out tonight
But I haven't got a stitch to wear
This man said "it's gruesome
That someone so handsome should care"

Elizabeth is dumbfounded by the unexpected beauty of Derbyshire, the lyrics of the song so accurately metaphors the coming events between her and Darcy.

Outside by your doorstep
In a worn out suit and tie

For you to come down
Where you'll find me
Where we'll shine"
