Orphans

Rosaleem of the Damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon

She went: ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
Indigo up in heaven today
Ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She said

I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again

Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune

He went: ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
Tulips the colour of honey today
It's true, true, ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He said

Oh, I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (Yeah)

Ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, oh-oh-oh, ooh
Cherub seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon

Oh, I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again

(Oh-oh, oh-oh ooh)
I guess we'll be raised on our own, then
(Oh-oh, oh-oh ooh)
I want to be with you 'til the world ends
I want to be with you 'til the whole world ends
