Story Behind The Song  
Teach Me Double Dutch is about how we reach for the TV remote to escape from the reality and monotony of daily life.

Lyrics  
He sighs as he closes the file and makes his way across the busy office floor  
Coat, hat, umbrella and case, and a head full of memories of winning the second war  
She cooks his dinner at home as he walks home from the station  

The doctor’s head is shaking on the TV tonight  
Her teenage heart is breaking on the TV tonight  
How can she be kissing him - their lips don’t even touch?  
Squeeze me. Mold me. Tear me. Fold me. Teach me double Dutch  

She sees as she’s boiling the peas that the window cleaner’s left a greasy smear  
Pork chops and Brussel sprouts. As she looks down the hallway she sees that her husband’s here  
He looks so wet and tired and she looks so pleased to see him  

The doctor’s head is shaking on the TV tonight  
Her teenage heart is breaking on the TV tonight  
How can she be kissing him - their lips don’t even touch?  
Squeeze me. Mold me. Tear me. Fold me. Teach me double Dutch  

He sits in front of the fire as his wife phones up their son at university  
Flicks through to the TV page and he starts to watch a true-life documentary  
Fast asleep by 10 o’clock, but his troubled day’s forgotten  

The doctor’s head is shaking on the TV tonight  
Her teenage heart is breaking on the TV tonight  
How can she be kissing him - their lips don’t even touch?  
Squeeze me. Mold me. Tear me. Fold me. Teach me double Dutch  

The crosses keep on burning on the TV tonight  
The Wheel Of Fortune’s turning on the TV tonight  
How can she be kissing him - their lips don’t even touch?  
Squeeze me. Mold me. Tear me. Fold me. Teach me double Dutch
