We ride

Along the reservoir

To find our brides

We tried

Them on the telephone

But they declined

The light

Is on holiday

To our surprise


They swam in the sea when there was no one around

Now we don’t hear their toes on the ground

Yeah when we talk well we don’t make a sound

Beginning to feel that they don’t mess around    


Our lives

Are long              

But not for everyone

The tides, they dry


Is meant for anyone


Now we can see that our ship’s run aground

And the people dragging our goods through the town

Everywhere you turn the faces look to the ground

Dare to conceal precious stones of the crown


Do you think they’d stay in a hotel?

Try the life outside a cell

Do you think we’re paying for the bill?

And I guess we might as well



We dine
