[Verse 1]
I see you’ve got the shivers,
Like dominoes one by one they fall.
Don’t drink the water from the river,
It’s that pollution makes the solution they pour.
Lucky heather hanging on your front door,
Hide your keepsakes in the drawer.

[Verse 2]
So try to shake the fever,
Apple a day will keep the doctor away.
Don’t try to fool a nonbeliever,
They go through the motions but don’t keep the bed bugs at bay.
Lucky heather hanging on your front door,
Keep your weapons in the drawer.

[Chorus]
Wednesday’s child,
Never could you hide from those who found you.
Adrift in the wild,
And trying to carry on with little else than written goodbyes,
Tattooed on your gypsy eyes.

[Verse 3]
Had to breach the routine,
But each day throws more of the same.
Don’t loose your herb of grace or touch piece,
From thieves to healers you’ve turned but tainted with blame,
Lucky heather hanging on your front door,
You left your heart there on the floor.

[Chorus]
Wednesday’s child,
Never could you hide from those who found you.
Adrift in the wild,
And trying to carry on with little else than written goodbyes,
Tattooed on your gypsy eyes.

[Verse 4]
They found you in the hedgerow,
Ice-cold hands on a sunlit day.
They tagged you as a Jane Doe,
They tore through the wagons then led the fires astray.
Lucky heather rising up in flames,
Leave your ashes to the plains.

[Chorus]
Wednesday’s child,
Never could you hide from those who found you.
Adrift in the wild,
And trying to carry on with little else than written goodbyes,
Tattooed on your gypsy eyes.
Tattooed on your gypsy eyes.
Tattooed on your gypsy eyes.
