lyrics

Today I had a peppermint tea in the cafe of a bookshop
And my eyes fell on a boy unlike any other
I laughed as he spoke even though he told no jokes
And oh my god I wish I put more effort in my makeup this morning

Bookshop boy, gimme your name, give me a smile, gimme your number
Bookshop boy gimme your hand, gimme your love, gimme an offer

I like your smile and you look like you read the kind of books that I enjoy

Him even noticing me I highly doubt
Oh bookshop boy come pick me up before I pass out
And oh my god I wish I put more effort in my makeup this morning

Bookshop boy, gimme your name, give me a smile, gimme your number
Bookshop boy gimme your hand, gimme your love, gimme an offer

I like your smile and you look like you read the kind of books that I enjoy

As the world gets smaller people's heads are getting bigger
But his feet look steady on the ground
I bet he reads the Sunday Times magazine
I bet he goes to all the coolest parties
I see us driving round in his car
I bet he’d treat me far far better

Serving people in a bookshop
Serving people in a bookshop
Serving people in a bookshop, making me collapse
Serving people in a bookshop, asking me out perhaps
Serving people in a bookshop
Serving people in a bookshop
Oh love me in a bookshop

Bookshop boy, gimme your name, gimme a smile, gimme your number
Bookshop boy gimme your hand, gimme your love, gimme an offer

Bookshop boy, gimme your name, gimme a smile, gimme your number
Bookshop boy gimme your hand, gimme your love, gimme everything you’ve got to offer

I like your smile and you look like you read the kind of books that I enjoy
And I’ve never enjoyed a bookshop boy before
