Like father, like son
Not flesh nor fish nor bone, a red rag hangs from an open mouth
Alive at both ends but a little dead in the middle
A-tumbling and a-bumbling he will go
All the king's horses and all the king's men
could never put a smile on that face
(2) follows the same pattern as (1)
He's a sly one, he's a shy one, wouldn't you be too?
Scared to be left all on his own
Hasn't a, hasn't a friend to play with the ugly duckling
The pressure on, the bubble will burst before our eyes
All the while in perfect time
his tears are falling on the ground
But if you don't stand up you don't stand a chance!
This is a "chorus" bit, which comes after:
"...don't stand a chance"
"...all to see at night"
"...you'd better watch out"
"...just a pool of tears"
C/D Dm7 Gm7 Gm Dsus2,4 Dm add E
Go a little faster now, you might get there in time
Mirror mirror on the wall
his heart was broken long before he ever came to you
Stop your tears from falling
The trail they leave is very clear for all to see at night
all to see at night
(3) like (1)
In season, out of season
what's the dff'rence when you don't know the reason?
In one hand bread, the other a stone
the hunter enters the forest
All are not huntsmen who blow thw huntsman's horn
By the look of this one, you've not got much to fear
Here I am, I'm very firce and fright'ning
Come to match my skill to yours
Now listen here, listen to me, don't you run away now
I am a friend, I'd really like to play with you
Making noises my little furry friend would make
I'll trick him, then I'll kick him into my sack
You'd better watch out, you'd better watch out
(to "chorus", no lyrics this time)
(just like bridge 1)
I've got you, I've got you, you'll never get away
Walking home that night
the sack across my back, the sound of sobbing on my shoulder
when suddenly it stopped
I opened up the sack, all that I had
a pool of bubbles and tears
just a pool of tears
All in all you are a very dying race
Placing trust upon a cruel world
You never had the things you thought you should have had
and you'll not get them now
and all the while in perfect time your tears are falling on the ground
