Based on an old African nursery rhyme.


Back To One

Be Glad She’s Gone
So You Won’t Have To
Lose Her Twice

Cos All The Time
You Got It Wrong
You Were Lost
Before You Begun

Someone Else’s Song
Has Come Along
& Defeated You
So Off You Run

And The Summer Sun
That Shone For Two
Only Shines For Her
And Not For You

And The Ache
That You Become
Will Linger On
You’ve Gone Back To One

Now All You Boys
Who Break The Rules
And Love The Sun
And Party On

And Roll The Bones
And Play The Dice
Kiss The Girls
And Make Them Cry

And Get Them High
And Play With Guns
And Play With Knives
And Carry On

Like Bloody Kings
When All You Seek
Are Pretty Things
You’ll Never Reach

And All You Cats
Who Play With Mice
And Bide You’re Time
Until The Game Moves On

I Know You All
Await The Call
And You Roll The Bones
And Play The Dice

Cos Everyone
Who Looks For Fun
Thinks It’s Cool
To Hit And Run

Well All The Time
You Hide In Dreams
It Doesn’t Make
A Hill Of Beans

So Gather Round
All You Fools
And Listen Well
While You Come Undone

You’ll Go To Earth
N You’ll Go To Ground
And You’ll Go To Hell
And Back To One

So Go On Home
Before Day Is Done
And Be On Your Way
And Be Glad She’s Gone

Say It’s Not Fair
And It’s Not Nice
But Just Be Glad
You Can’t Lose Her Twice

For The Summer Sun
Is On The Run
So Go Back To One
Your Song Is Sung
And What’s Done Is Done
