Wake lady wake
The hills are in flood
And the road we must take
Is a river of blood
And the wind in the wires
And your heart like a cup
And I'm down in the war
And you've got to get up
For mercy's sake
Wake lady wake

Dress lady dress
Put on your skullcap and boots
For the priest has confessed
And the chase is afoot
And the hounds are behind
Gunmen around every tree
And if it's all in our minds
- well where else would it be ?
I suggest
You dress lady dress

This is the day, this is the day, this is,
This is the day, this is,
This is the day, the day, this is the day
This is the day, this is the day, this is,
This is the day, this is,
This is the day, the day, this is the day
Our kingdom will crash
Like a poor piece of trash

Swim lady swim
Lady don't refuse
Though our chances are slim
And we're totally confused
There are clues to be found
And I'd ask my peers
But they're all dumbing down
Till this bad weather clears
We're out on a limb
So swim lady swim

This is the day....
