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
