"Hang Low"

[ from the album "Ocky Milk" (2006) ]

Lyrics

I've set my heart on being good
Very friendly
And I will carve my heart of wood
Splendid, splendid

I'll ride a dragon made of jade
And speak no evil
I think it's strange to be afraid
We're only people

So hang low, hang low
And do no evil
Like aeroplanes on snow
We're only people
Make sure the tray tables are stowed
To have here or to go?
And now the blossom fails to show
For we are landing

On every lovely yellow night
With spousy piety
I shall perform the ancient rite
With due sobriety

And each uncomplicated thing
Is never-ending
And every lovely song you sing
Is all-befriending

So hang low, hang low
And see no evil
So hang low, hang low
And see no evil
Like aeroplanes on snow
We're only people
Make sure the tray tables are stowed
To have here or to hold
And now the blossom falls so slow
It seems to glow

And I will catch a Eurostar
At Waterloo station
And I will play my blue guitar
In desperation

But hang low, hang low
And be no evil
Like aeroplanes on show
We're only people
Make sure the tray tables are stowed
To have here or to go
And now the blossom falls so slow
We're only people

So hang low, hang low
And do no evil
Like aeroplanes on show
We are landing
Make sure the tray tables are stowed
To have here or to go
And now the blossom seems to glow
We're only people
