lyrics

Hudibras Sheepishly we asked our way/ In the grim light of the morning/ We come from aristocracies/ Not the homes that we were born in/ Looking for a hand-drawn sign/ on an ill-made street/ One that bad design left incomplete/ We drank and told our favourite jokes/ To the people we were courting/ They seemed impressed, they had some laughs/ They promised they would vote/ In time to set us free/ to the life we lead/ With a cup of tea/ and the kind of love we need/ Your idol gay had feet of clay/ But you did not need to wash them/ He raised a shout/ they rushed us out/ In a cloud of vain expostulations/ Looking up from a stone-strewn street/ We still could not recognise defeat/ While life was sweet/ Who would "Spare the rod and spoil the child"/ If they knew that boy was Cupid?/ His heart numbed by ill-bred scum/ And the children of the stupid/ Stupid arts and stupid face/ Coming from a stupid place/ It's much too late to liberate him now.
