No Blankets Required

about

Originally released on "Side Hustle Biscuits" by Billy Rich and the Naked Flames (2022).

A tale of a love interest, the "larrikin lover" that got away. But perhaps it was better for all concerned that this relationship didn't last. She was "just digging for treasure" after all.

My Tom Jones "Sexbomb" song.

lyrics

No Blankets Required

Baby, you said your feet were getting cold
She said, well don't go paddling in the river
You'll never make your fortune panning for gold
Rock solid love is what I deliver

She said, it's not like you to be so bold
Your little heart is all of a quiver
I'm gonna make your blankets unfold
I'm gonna make you shake and shiver

No blankets required
No blankets required
We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine
I threw them all in the fire

She said, if our fire burns out of control
Will you go and fetch a pail of water?
You're looking at me like a demon of old
You're making me feel like the devil's daughter

I said, I don't know what you've been told
But I heard that you were just digging for treasure
My heart's running hot, but my feet are still cold
Don't you know that diamonds are forever?

No blankets required
No blankets required
We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine
I threw them all in the fire

She said
Alright now

Now our fire has run out of coal
We knew it wouldn't burn forever
She had a perfect body but a wicked soul
My number one true little larrikin lover

And now I'm never gonna see her again
Not if I'm careful, not if I'm clever
You spend a lifetime walking in the sunshine
You gotta stop and wash your feet in the river

No blankets required
No blankets required
We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine
I threw them all in the fire
And now the flames will burn higher...
