Laughing Boy Lyrics

Laughing Boy - Julian Cope

Written by:Julian Cope

 

The wind it plays upon your hair

 

A vision of a glorious sea

 

The wind that follows down from there

 

Incarcerates the sea

 

The waking hours are the loneliest ones

 

For the sinister boys like me

 

Travelling east straight lines from the past

 

I'm happy in morality

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out I said no

 

I've got no place to go

 

The king and queen of my estates

 

My real estates are real

 

The king and queen have offered me

 

The estate of robert peel

 

Is it talent you need

Write the talents you see

 

Write the talent clear for me

 

And the sign that says

Clean the carpet maid

 

Like a carpet I rolled away

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out I said no

 

I've got no place to go

 

The wind it plays upon your hair

 

So ever so gloriously

 

So be content with the apple spent

 

On the william tell of me

 

As the faces they bleed

 

Watch them dull and recede

 

Won't you help to keep my spirit clear

 

Stay a week and a day and never go away

 

Be forever in my presence dear

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out of here

 

Oh oh oh

 

No don't cast me out I said no

 

 

I've got no place to go
