Now school time was a drag
teacher fed us abc
painted out our future as she lit up another fag
singing how many roads
lord help me please

I wanted to be Louis Armstrong
singing hello Dolly
wanting to belong
like my cross eyed cat
there's something wrong

Well I went by Lizzies house
she said hello child
hello child
they tell me you went wild

Now she sang you dont wanna be like that boy
you just throw your books on my fire
I'll fill you with someone called Roy
he'll tell you about your desires

I reckoned I got nothing to win
preacher tells me I'm full of sin
so,so,so full of sin
so I entered heaven and hell
with the lights dimmed low
a blank page waiting to rebel

she played Roy again and again
treated me like a king
didn't know he'd drive me insane
saw my sweet lord
understood all his pain

Now Lizzies house down in ole Langlees
played the sweetest songs you've ever seen
been a long time now Liz has gone
but Roy's sweet hymn lives on

His silent song
that silent song
taught me to see right from wrong

So many years
so many tears
now I'm just trying
