lyrics

Goodbye to parents they leave me to settle in this green
Out to the bar to meet people with names like Matthew & Mary

I will get drunk and go wandering in the gardens
I'm dressed in white
I'm a grass-stained ghost
People walk me home
Their names are Matthew & Mary

Run golden cornfield to Foxhole to shelter in its sanctuary
In Yellow House there are pretty girls there from the Home Counties

I will fall in love with a flipping gymnast
From her bones statues are cast
I am with friends
Their names are Matthew & Mary

We will get drunk and explore the gardens
We will get dressed up and we will go dancing
I am with friends
Check names: Matthew and Mary

Sketch all the buildings in sunlight literally
Find ways of talking about the arts, set, sex sequences and scenes

I am with friends
Their names- Matthew & Mary
