lyrics

Are you barely human? Don’t you fit in with the world?
Are you in a boy band and too busy to meet girls?
Well get thee to the internet, I’m sure you know the way
I’ll be your pretend girlfriend for 3.95 a day

I’ll send you automated voicemail – feign concern that you’re alright
I’ll be the one who keeps you company in chatrooms overnight
I’ll send you photographs and birthday cards, receipts for luxuries
As far as all your friends are concerned – I’m very real

I’m your girlfriend
Your pretend girlfriend
I’m your girlfriend
Your pretend girlfriend

Naysayers say – “immoral” - it’s a “money making scam”
That preys upon the meek and ugly disaffected man
So tell me if you’re so concerned why aren’t *you* dating them?
Me, I’ll just keep mailing out those perfumed 4x10s

And you should see the e-mails I must wade through every day
And you should see my credit balance hurtling through space
We do what we can, not what is right or what we should
Love is just a business - and business is good for your girlfriend

You’re very special, you’re just my type
I’m sure that underneath you’re the kind of guy girls like
I’m really love your e-mails, your online company
But just don’t come within a million miles of me

People can’t be bothered with the hassle life inflicts
It’s like a real relationship without the nervous tics
You can call it off at any time like cancelling a debt
But you’ll come crawling back cos I’m the best you’ll ever get

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
