BABY LEMONADE

In the sad town, cold iron hands
Clap the party of clowns outside
Rain falls in grey far away
Please, please, Baby Lemonade

In the evening sun going down
When the earth streams in the morning
Send a cage through the post
Make your name like a ghost
Please, please, Baby Lemonade

I'm screaming, I met you this way
You're nice to me like ice
In the clock they sent through a washing machine
Come around, make it soon, so alone
Please, please, Baby Lemonade

In the sad town, cold iron hands
Clap the party of clowns outside
Rain falls in grey far away
Please, please, Baby Lemonade

In the evening sun going down
When the earth streams in the morning
Send a cage through the post
Make your name like a ghost
Please, please, Baby Lemonade

 

LOVE SONG

I knew a girl and I like her still
She said she knew she would trust me, and I, oh, will
I said OK baby, tell me what you'll be
And I'll lay my head down and see what I see
By the time she was back, by her open eyes
I knew that I was in for a big surprise

I knew a girl and I like her still
She said she knew she would trust me, and I, oh, will
I said OK baby, tell me what you'll be
And I'll lay my head down and see what I see
By the time she was back, by her open eyes
I knew that I was in for a big surprise

 

DOMINOES

It's an idea, someday, in my tears my dreams
Don't you want to see her proof
Life that comes does no harm
You and I, you and I and dominoes, the day goes by

You and I in place, wasting time on dominoes
A day so dark, so warm, life that comes of no harm
You and I and dominoes, time goes by

Fireworks and heat someday
Hold a shell, a stick or play, overheard along today
Losing when my mind's astray
Don't you want to know with your pretty hair
Stretch your hand, glad feel in an echo for your way

It's an idea, someday

It's an idea, someday, in my tears my dreams
Don't you want to see her proof
Life that comes does no harm
You and I, you and I and dominoes, the day goes by

 

IT IS OBVIOUS

It is obvious, may I say, oh baby
That it is found on another plain
Yes I can creep into cupboards, sleep in a hole
Your stars my stars, a simple cock-bar
Only an impulse pie in the sky
Mumble listen dolly, drift over your mind, holly
Creep into bed when your head's on the ground
She held the torch on the porch, she winked an eye

Reason it is written on the brambles
Stranded on the spikes - my blood red, oh listen
Remember those times I could call through the clear day time
And you would be there

Braver and braver, a handkercheif waver
The louder you lips to a loud hailer
Growing together, the good of each other
No wondering, stumbling, fumbling rumbling
Minds shot togther, minds shot together

So equally over a valley, a hill wooden
On quarry stood, each of us crying
A velvet curtain of grey mark the blanket where the sparrows play
And the trees by the waving corn stranded and
My legs move the last empty inches to you
The softness, the warmth from the weather in suspence
Mote to a grog - the star a white chalk
Minds shot together, our minds shot together

 

RATS

Got it head down, spot knock inside a spider
Said that's love yeh, yeh, yeah
That's love yeh, yeh, yeah

Said that's love, all know it, TV, teeth, feet, peace, feel it
That's love, yeh, yeh, yeah
That's love, yeh, yeh, yeah

I like the fall that brings me to
I like the fall that brings me to
I make a cold around Saint New
I make a call around Saint New
Duck the weight and east is less
The craving of the metal west
Hell tomorrow's rain and test
Hell tomorrow's rain and test
Love an empty sun and guess
Love an empty sun and guess
Dimples dangerous and blessed
Heaving, arriving, tinkeling
Mingling jet and statuettes
Seething wet we meet in fleck
Seething wet we meet in fleck
Lines and winds and freeben half
Each fair day I give you half
Each fair day I give you half

I look into your eyes and you
Lay flat in the sun for you

Blam, splattered, tactile, engine heaving brackets
Seeking dormy roofy wham
I'll have them mind, blown
Broken jardy, clawdy
Smooth you root you packing bottle
Splosh eat moxy very smelly, cable, gable
Splinter channel doctor see me take a nod

Rats, rats lay down flat
We don't need you, we act like that
And if you think you're un-loved
Then we know about that
Rats, rats, lay down flat
Yes, yes, yes, yes, lay down flat

 

MAISIE

Maisie
Maisie
Maisie
Maisie
Bad luck
Bride of a bull
Strode out to meet Masie in the evening light
Maisie
His illuminous grin put her in a spin
Maisie
Lay in a hole with diamonds and emeralds
Maisie
Maisie
Bad luck
The bride of a bull
Strode out to meet Maisie in the evening light
His illuminous grin put her in a spin
Maisie
Lay in the wall with her emeralds and diamond
Be under partridge
Bad luck
Bride of a bull
Strode out to meet Maisie in the evening light
Maisie

 

GIGOLO AUNT

Grooving around in a trench coat with the saturn on trail
Seems to be all around in tin and lead pail, we pale
Jiving on down to the beach to see the blue and the grey
Seems to be all and it's rosy-it's a beautiful day

Will you please keep on the track
'Cause I almost want you back
'Cause I know what you are, you are a giglo aunt
You're a gigolo aunt
Yes I know what you are, you are a gigolo aunt
You're a gigolo aunt

Heading down with the light, the dust in your way
She was angrier than, than her watershell male
Life to this love to me - heading me down to me, thunderbird shale
Seems to be all and it's rosy - it's a beautiful day

Will you please keep on the track
'Cause I almost want you back
'Cause I know what you are, you are a giglo aunt
You're a gigolo aunt

Moving on down and in and up, Sue polity day
Some wish she move and just as she came
Move, driving away, she made the scene should have been-superlative day
Everything's all and it's rosy, it's a beautiful day

Will you please keep on the track
'Cause I almost want you back
'Cause I know what you are, you are a giglo aunt
You're a gigolo aunt

 

WAVING MY ARMS IN THE AIR

Waving my arms in the air
Love, my love, got no care
No care, no, no, pressing my feet to the ground
Stand up right where you stand
Call to you and what do you do
Laying back in a chair

She's so high on the air
She's so high on the air
Half and half, half and half
All you have to do to call
Is hold her her hand
Stand a while and then smile and we'll understand
Yes we do, yes, yes we do

Oh waht a girl I've got too
Oh waht a girl I've got too
With her slinky look she held her tie to her hair
But you see everywhere
No-one in the land, no-one
No-one in the land, no-one

But it rains on saturday
Cats and dogs in the way
Stormy day, hey, hey
And you shouldn't try to be what you can't be
And you shouldn't try to be what you can't be
Call to you and what do you do

 

I NEVER LIED TO YOU

There will be shoulders pressing in the hall
And I won't know if you're here at all
There will be wine and drinking in the yard
There won't be anybody very hard
There will be lots of things that we can do
And all and more will be for you
Everything I knew I tried with you
But everything to you was never easy
So I went ahead around my world, I saw the things you do
Arriving by your side, to see you looking too
But I know this I know, I never lied to you
It's been just like you're gone
For just one day for so long!
It's been so hard to bear with you not there
But thought I think of you, the things you do
When I'm with you, to be with you, to be alone
Can only think Why I am here? What's meant to be

 

WINED AND DINED

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen
Only last summer, it's not so long ago
Just last summer, now must winds blow

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen
Chalk underfoot, life I should prove
Dancing in heat, our love and you

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen

 

WOLFPACK

Howling the pack in formation appears
Diamonds and clubs, light misted fog, the dead
Waving us back in formation, the pack in formation
Bowling they bat as a group and the leader is seen
Slowly, back to the back the fighters
Through misty the waving, the pack in formation far reaching waves
On sight, shone right I lay as if in surrounded
All enmeshing, hovering the milder I gaze
All the animals laying trail
Beyond the far winds
Mild the reflecting electricity eyes
The life that was ours for a short period 
Fell away in the end
Short wheeling fresh spring
Gripped with blanched bones
Moaned magnesium, proverbs and sobs
Howling the pack in formation appears
Diamonds and clubs, light misted fog, the dead
Waving us back in formation, the pack in formation

 

EFFERVESCING ELEPHANT

An effervescing elephant with tiny eyes, and great big trunk
Once whispered to the tiny ears, the ears of one inferior
That by next june he'd die, oh yeah
Because the tiger would roar
And the little one said oh my goodness I must stay at home
And everytime I hear a growl, I'll know the tiger's on the prowl
And I'll be really safe you know, the elephant he told me so
And everyone was nervvy, oh yeah
And the message was spread
To zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus
Who wollowed in the mud and chewed, his spicy hippoplancton food
And tended to ignore the word, prefering to survey a herd
Of stupid water bison, oh yeah
And the jungle took fright
And ran around for all the day and the night
But all in vain because you see
The tiger came and said to me,
You know I wouldn't hurt not one of you, I much prefer something to chew
You're all too scant, oh yeah
He ate the elephant
