Watch the sand hoppers dance this Normandy day
Beneath the shade of the watch tower lay
And sinking into slumber watch the wine seduce my mind
Who over time, the tumbler, tell me
What’s the name I blame? The wind

She answers daily
The sad song lies blind
Dressed in love’s hour upon my friend’s mind
Oh the lady that he loved most dearly lies with their false friend
But not a single word like, “I’ll be gone.”

This is the end of an age and it’s left in the sand,
Where once to homage they fought hand in hand
Against a foreign foe who thought his cause most justified
I'm not the man to tell him that foe lied. He died.

Yes he died just like that broken bottle
And the crab we caught and then killed for no reason
Oh but don’t that summer sky look crazy?
What good’s the sky when you have no days to watch it by?

I’m wondering what makes me stay.
Maybe I should go away from these Normandy days

Watch the sand hoppers dance this Normandy day
Beneath the shade of the watch tower lay
And sinking into slumber watch the wine seduce my mind
Who over time, the tumbler, tell me
What’s the name I blame? The wind.
