movin’ on lyrics – inner terrestrials

i was born in the middle of the afternoon
in a horse drawn wagon on the old a5
a big twelve wheeler shook my bed
you can’t stop here the policeman said
better get born some place else
move along get along move along get along
go move shift!

i was born on a common by a building site
where the land was rutted by the trailers wheels
the local christians said to me
you’re lowering the price of the property
better get born some place else…

the winter sky was hung with stars
one shone brighter than the rest
the wise men came so stern and strict
and brought the order to evict
better get born some place else…

i was born in a tatty lifting time
in an old bow tent in a tatty field
the farmer said the work’s all done
it’s time that you were moving on
better get born some place else…

i was born at the back of a blackth*rn hedge
when the white hair frost lay all around
no eastern kings came bearing gifts
no they said you’d better sh*t
better get born some place else…

wagon tent or trailer born
last week last year or in far off times
here and a thousand miles away
there will always be men who say
better get born some place else…
