To Die A Virgin

Version originale (3:39)

Jennifer Ehle: “If there’s a war, I’ll sleep with you before you get killed.” That’s what maidens do in books and I’m a maiden.
Toby Stephens: How you do carry on about your virginity. Virginity’s nothing. You can lose it riding a bicycle.
Jennifer Ehle: I never knew that. I must be careful. I’m going to get a bicycle in London.

Well we’ve been going together
Since the eighth of November.
And though it seems like forever
I very clearly remember
You told me on our first date
What you’d do on my birthday.
Well hooray, it’s my birthday!
And frankly, baby, I can’t wait.

I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin.
sha lalalala
I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin.

The other day I discovered
A magazine of my brother’s.
I read it under the covers,
It got me all hot and bothered.
Now every time that I see you,
Your uniform becomes see-through.
You don’t know how much I need you,
The ‘Handy Andys’ I’ve been through.

I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin.
sha lalalala
I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin.
sha lalalala
Oh...

“The pines and the cedars rejoice in his fall. “The pines and the cedars rejoice in his fall.
How are you fallen from heaven? How are you fallen from heaven?
Oh Hellel, star of the morning.” Oh Hellel, star of the morning.”

With all the bombs and the bird-flu,
We’re probably gonna be dead soon.
And here we are in your bedroom,
Oh did I tell you I love you, I love you, I love you ?
I can feel your heart beating,
And your breathing increasing.
Your folks are out for the evening,
I really hope I’m not dreaming!

I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin
sha lalalala
I don’t want to...
sha lalalala
Die a virgin
sha lalalala
Oh...
