lyrics

I typed up a letter, meant to send, but thought better
Oh how he sang to me
Three notes a melody
And I keep hearing that flat Flemish fugue

And I leaned on a lamppost, scoffing my lunch
Chewing on a little word
Chewing on a little word
To the effect that he'd marry soon
Oh my blonde Dragoon at Montecassino

I swam in the river, felt the chill in my liver
Latterly shut my gob
Got straight and took a job
'Cos I was fearing a long solitude

And I leaned on a lamppost, halfway from home
Waiting on a certain girl,
Waiting on a shiny maiden
'Cos fairies must take an interest
Give that mind a rest from Montecassino

On the day that you come
I'll be strong and handsome
And the light will pay heed to its training
When this woman that I meet tells me
"You look empty and beat"
Set her straight, animate what’s remaining
Oh, will I ever glimmer again?

I wrote him a letter, turned it into a feather
And now it floats for me over the Zuider Zee
And I keep hearing, I keep hearing that flat Flemish fugue
And I'm still fearing, I'm still fearing a long solitude

So I lay at a bus-stop on my way home
Wondering about results
Wondering about how
Actions produce all manner of results
Shipping some insults
And falling asleep-o
Oh Montecassino
