lyrics

If I’d have known you were coming I’d have baked a cake
Got the cook book down and found one to make
I'd have used the finest chocolate and the freshest milk
I'd have whipped some cream that was soft as silk
If I’d have known you were coming, I’d have baked you a cake

If I’d have known you were coming I’d have scrubbed the floor
Put some fresh flowers outside the front door
Got out my finest linens and the china too
I’d have pulled out all the stops to try to woo you
If I’d have known you were coming, I’d have baked you a cake

I heard the knock, threw back the lock
My heart went into shock, like a time-bomb, tick tock
I must confess to nervousness
I don’t know what you said but I answered ‘Yes!’

If I’d have known you were coming I’d have washed my hair
Spent the whole day deciding what to wear
Put on my finest stockings and my best perfume
I mighta got bold and cleaned the bedroom
If I’d have known you were coming, I’d have baked you a cake

I heard the knock, threw back the lock
My heart went into shock, like a time-bomb, tick tock
I must confess to nervousness
I don’t know what you said but I answered ‘Yes!’

If I’d have known you were coming I’d have dimmed the lights
Unplugged the phone and pulled the blinds
Put on my favourite record for some atmosphere
I’d have kicked off my shoes just to make it clear
If I’d have known you were coming, I’d have baked you a cake
