Bauhaus Watch That Grandad Go

I’m sitting tight

I’m holding still

The flowers bite

The cobweb’s still

We walk in file

We stand in line

The drug is in

And we (did not)

Since you’ve been so lonely

Pain will cease to tease you

Scars may not be ugly

A doll’s leg fits around you

Why is everybody burning sky

Misfit plug and chicken pie

Walk in file and dance in line

Straightedge tango sequins shine

The ground is steady

The stiff is stiff

The cobweb’s torn

The tide is tired

You’re so alone

You’re so awake

You wish you’d never been awake

The knock goes off and the knock goes out

The city spills

There’s a (lover who screams)

The sickness fills

When the night gets tough

You wish you’d never been so so so skinny

(walk in line dance in file)

Sicking all night and working all day

Spin with fright when you’re finding no way

And the drums get dark in night or day

Sicking all night and working all day

See my grandad go…

(walk in line dance in file)

Walk and dance in single file

Right up to the bread in here

Couldn’t find the bread in there

We couldn’t find the bread

And we couldn’t find the heart

And we worked so hard

We worked so heartbeat

If I look up there

If I look a fool

If I look up there

If I look a fool

Jack went up the

Jack came down the

Jack and Jill

Went up the hill

Jack came flying down the still

Jack what’re you doing Jack?

I don’t know – I’m back!

Oh no!

I told you not to put on those trousers

Don’t put on the trousers, don’t put on the trousers

Your dress is too starched

It’s too starched

You got a high class face today

You ought to have used nailpolish

Lights out fast and sleep at night

Lights out fast and sleep at night

Turn the light out

Get into bed

Cover yourself up

Your head

Your head

Your head

Your head!
