lyrics

(Faith)
I love Dairy, but you can't eat Diary. I think we need to call, the Dairy Fairy, so you can eat cheese.
They can wave their magic wand over your belly, say the magic words, so you can eat Dairy, and have ice cream.

But we can't always get the things that we want, and sometimes you just have to let it drop, to put your mind at ease,
for you I'd go Dairy Free.
for you I'd go Dairy Free.

(John)
You love Dairy, but I can't eat Dairy, I think we need to call the Dairy Fairy, so I can eat cheese.
They can wave their magic wand over my belly, and say the magic words so I can eat Dairy, and have ice cream
(Faith)
And when we're out in a restaurant, I'll have the same as you if that's what you want, oh salad for me.

And if you just can't resist, I'll sit by the toilet if you get sick. You don't need to worry about me, because
for you i'd go dairy free,
for you i'd go dairy free,
for you i'd go dairy free...
