polly lyrics – echo & the bunnymen

_________________
polly put the kettle on
i met a man
and asked of them
he told me that
the pound was strong

i knew that bridge was falling
so jimmy put the gas masks on
and swam and swam
up to the dam
and everyone came along

don’t think we can talk _______
____________ making war
don’t think we can risk it
another heavy biscuit __________
can i beat the count of ten
i’m lying just to stay alive
dying in my _________ again
taken to a dive
trying to survive

when’s it going to take you
and how’s it gonna make you feel
you can’t even spell it
so how you gonna tell
if it’s real?

a bomb blew up my shelter
i never even felt a thing
i brushed away the dust and
gave ole jimmy custer a ring

don’t think we can talk _______
____________ making war
don’t think we can risk it
another heavy biscuit __________
can i beat the count of ten
i’m lying just to stay alive
dying in my _________ again
taken to a dive
trying to survive

i knew that bridge was falling
so jimmy put the gas masks on
and swam and swam
up to the dam
and everyone came along
