body of water lyrics – billy bragg

i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home
i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home

you’re where you want to be
where am i? i’m up a tree
i had a heart attack
rolled away, now i’m bouncing back

i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home
i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home

forgive me for feeling sick
i think i just got up too quick
is this the consequence
of an out of bed experience?

where i’m from, this sun don’t shine
we keeps the light on all the time
i walk upon the ground you dream about
you finding out about it now
but you are never clever to be found

i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home

summer could take a hint
seeing you in a floral print
oh, to become a pearl
in the wordy world of the cornflake girl

i will cross this body of water
if you promise me you won’t try this at home

don’t try this at home
don’t try this at home
don’t try this at home
don’t try this at home
