Oh Lord deliver us from the elements

It would shock you too the things we used to do on grass
Things we did on grass

Spittled and grilled it crackled and spat
And children grew fat on the meat
Change must be earnt

A patriotic romance
And I know all you poets
Have seen it all before
About the stirring of those young hearts
Back in the first world war

And let our Rael Brook shirts hang out
Nothing makes us more content
To let us wallow in a bit of nonsense

That I am out of my tree
Or just a strawberry fool
Someday they'll see
Till then I'll blow you a raspberry
'Cos apples and pears are me
