XTC - Humble Daisy

Lyric by: Andy Partridge

Humble Daisy
Form a chain to
hold all battleships in check
Humble Daisy
Knit a ladder
down to nature's sunken wreck
Ragged rug unbound
Tangle trip the lovers
Royal barge aground
Brighter than all of the others
on the window sill
I'll sing about you if nobody else will
Humble Daisy
Cast the milk and coins
of morning's cash about
Humble Daisy
I fell down to heaven
as you picked me out
We'll look up together
Browsing through some old sky
Sipping in the weather
You've got me dizzy,
the fly that climbed the sugar hill
I'll lay upon you
'till somebody else will
Humble Daisy
We'll look up together
