Midweek on the playing fields
I didn’t wanna bust didn’t wanna play the game
I met my love by the gasworks wall
And they call it puppy love
I got my liver
Stolen from Africa
He let me take him in my arms
All the way to Reno
To the black to the white the red and
A very big house in the country
I went to the doctor and guess what he told me?
There’s too much confusion
Beatus vir qui timet dominum.
