Text písně O Children feat The Bad Seeds

Pass me that lovely little gun
My dear, my darling one
The cleaners are coming, one by one
You don't even want to let them start


They are knocking now upon your door
They measure the room, they know the score
They're mopping up the butcher's floor
Of your broken little hearts


O children


Forgive us now for what we've done
It started out as a bit of fun
Here, take these before we run away
The keys to the gulag


O children
Lift up your voice, lift up your voice
Children
Rejoice, rejoice


Come on, come on, come on, come on


Here comes Frank and poor old Jim
They're gathered round with all my friends
We're older now, the light is dim
And you are only just beginning


O children


We have the answer to all your fears
It's short, it's simple, it's crystal clear
It's round about, it's somewhere here
Lost amongst our winnings


O children
Lift up your voice, lift up your voice
Children
Rejoice, rejoice


The cleaners have done their job on you
They're hip to it, man, they're in the groove
They've hosed you down, you're good as new
They're lining up to inspect you


O children


Poor old Jim's white as a ghost
He's found the answer that we lost
We're all weeping now, weeping because
There ain't nothing we can do to protect you


O children
Lift up your voice, lift up your voice
Children
Rejoice, rejoice


Hey little train! We are all jumping on
The train that goes to the Kingdom
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun
And the train ain't even left the station


Hey, little train! Wait for me!
I once was blind but now I see 
Have you left a seat for me?
Is that such a stretch of the imagination?


Hey little train! Wait for me!
I was held in chains but now I'm free
I'm hanging in there, don't you see
In this process of elimination


Hey little train! We are all jumping on 
The train that goes to the Kingdom
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun
It's beyond my wildest expectation


Hey little train! We are all jumping on
The train that goes to the Kingdom
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun
And the train ain't even left the station
