teaparty for an orchard lyrics – culpepers orchard

the white knight is creeping through the forest
where the eastern king is sitting on his throne
moon shining light disturbs the autumn silence
the christmas fairy hasn’t got a home

luck carefully blocks out the castle windows
while magus sits and weaves the lonely web
two lovers in the maze have lost their reasons
and marie antoinette has lost her head

don’t look at me, everything is free
set the table quickly, james, we’ll be thirteen for tea

the captain has just lost his only spygl*ss
tony perkins pushing cars into the moss
i don’t know if there’s time, but please believe me
we’ve got to get the leader off the cross
the tongs are chasing b*tterflies with razors
and when they meet the fleet they’ll have some fun
i thought i heard the sound of distant thunder
perhaps it’s rodger practising the drums

don’t follow me, to the angel by the sea
set the table quickly, james, we’ll be thirteen for tea

you suddenly came into my mind
suddenly was all i could find, n*body but you

it isn’t just a game
picture needs no frame, don’t blame the brain drain

i’m told that flying saucers have been sighted
that’s the news i’ve waited just to hear
it means that all our guests are on their way in
i’m sure that very soon they will appear
i think i see them climbing up the hill now
their robes are flowing gently in the air
so oluf better quit his nails and hide them
and find the little prince an easy chair

don’t look at me, everything is free
set the table, james, we’ll be thirteen for tea
