Lyrics

LET ENGLAND SHAKE

The West’s asleep. Let England shake,

weighted down with silent dead.

I fear our blood won’t rise again.

 

England’s dancing days are done.

Another day, Bobby, for you to come home

& tell me indifference now.

 

Smile, smile Bobby, with your lovely mouth.

Pack up your troubles, let’s head out

to the fountain of death

& splash about, swim back & forth

& laugh out loud,

 

until the day is ending,

& the birds are silent in the branches,

& the insects are courting in the bushes,

& by the shores of lovely lakes

heavy stones are falling.
