Lyrics

I never thought that you would come
Your sister said your nerve had gone
You're trying to make it straight right now
but I don't think that you know how

Your sister knows
She wears your clothes
She laughs at all those things you chose
Your sister knows
Takes off your clothes
We use your bed for goodness knows

I left something just where I knew you'd find it
lift your pillow and you'll see

And he's coming round today
Hey, hey
Check out if you're still alive
talking dirt won't change your life
Listen hard and you can hear her saying not to be so afraid
Loosen up and lay right down
Watch her as she's going down
It's easy when you stop pretending that you just got lost on the way

I can't remember where we met
I can't remember what she said
I can't forget the things we did
When everything just seemed to fit

Your sister knows
She wears your clothes
She laughs at all those things you chose
Your sister knows
Takes off your clothes
We use your bed for goodness knows

She says it's better with two
If you'd just stop being so stuck up

And he's coming round today
Hey, hey
Check out if you're still alive
talking dirt won't change your life
Listen hard and you can hear her saying not to be so afraid
Loosen up and lay right down
Watch her as she's going down
It's easy when you stop pretending that you just got lost on the way

Try it; you might like it
But you might smudge your lipstick

And he's coming round today
Hey, hey
Check out if you're still alive
Talking dirt won't change your life
Listen hard and you can hear her saying not to be so afraid
Loosen up and lay right down
Watch her as she's going down
It's easy when you stop pretending that you just got lost on the way
It's easy when you stop pretending that you've, you've never ever seen her
Oh, you've seen her going down and down and down and down and down

Sleeve notes

"Your Sister's Clothes" features the sisters from "Babies" four years on. Now the younger sibling finally gets her revenge for earlier years.

Notes

The vinyl editions of The Sisters EP positioned this song at the end of Side A, where the droning noise at the end was faded out to silence. This version later appeared on His 'n' Hers: Deluxe Edition.

On the CD and cassette editions of The Sisters EP the droning sound segued directly into the next track, Seconds. This was replicated on the Second Class compilations.
