lets form a band

Hey let´s form a band You can be red Rodney I´ll be elvin jones Let´s meet in soho Let´s go steal books From foyles Like in the old days Let´s run until we can´t & laugh until we faint It´s all we have now Punch a cop in the face & offer him a handkerchief As big as a field A field with a bull We can pat on the nose I wish all picnics Were a break on time & the stars could tap Our shoulders In consolation Ha! Let´s perform a dance A sad little dance A possible & unfortunate Dance All we have now is what? A remote control To change the colour Of the milky way? Language? Stones? Dice? The rutted tracks Of roman chariots So let´s form a band & make sour music Maybe not this week But soon
