Hunting Lizards In The Long Grass

HUNTING LIZARDS IN THE LONG GRASS

WAKE UP IN THE MORNING

THE SUN IS SHINING BRIGHT

GROWN-UPS ARE STILL SLEEPING

ANOTHER DRUNKEN NIGHT

 

GET SHORTS AND SANDALS ON

A SLICE OF BREAD AND HONEY

OUT THE DOOR WITH FISHING NET

AND A JAM JAR ON A STRING

 

GO DOWN TO THAT WASTE LAND

NEXT DOOR TO THE HARBOUR

WHERE THE BOATS ARE BOBBING

AND ALL THE FLAGS ARE FLYING

 

GREEN BACKED BEETLES GLEAMING

THE SEAGULLS SHRILLY SCREAMING

HUNTING LIZARDS IN THE LONG GRASS

WHILE DREAMS ARE DAILY DREAMING

 

I KEEP THINKING ABOUT THE NIGHT BEFORE

ON MY OWN OUTSIDE THE SALOON BAR DOOR

 

WITH A BAG OF CRISPS AND A GLASS OF LEMONADE

THE WAY THEY LEFT ME ON MY OWN AGAIN

 

ON MY OWN AGAIN

ON MY OWN AGAIN

 

CORNFLOWERS BLUELY SWAY

GRASSHOPPERS CLICK ALL DAY

HUNTING LIZARDS IN THE LONG GRASS

WILL TAKE THE PAIN AWAY

 

BACK TO THE BUNGALOW

EVERYONE IS UP AND DRESSED

LOOK AT THE JAR OF LIZARDS

THEY SEEM MILDLY IMPRESSED

 

HUNTING LIZARDS IN THE LONG GRASS

ALWAYS TAKES THE PAIN AWAY

HUNTING LIZARDS IN THE LONG GRASS

ALWAYS TAKES THE PAIN AWAY
