A Little Man and a House
Cardiacs Lyrics


Leaving early, just before the hour
A few moments won't make any difference
Not to me, anyway

The early bird catches the worm

I don't really want to go in tomorrow
The man will tell me off for leaving early yesterday

Close your eyes dear, never mind

And there's voices inside me
They're screaming and telling me;
"That's the way we all go"
There's thousands of people just like me all over
But that's the way we all go

What can I do, when everyones been so helpful
How can I have the right to say
I'm different to you?

(Oh......)

But I'm lost not for words or for kindness or sympathy
That's the way we all go
And if you're bigger you fall a bit harder
But that's the way we all go

There's a pain in my side it's a lesson I learned from a while ago
(That's the way we all go)
I'll be screaming inside I'll be biting my nails but it won't show
(That's the way we all go)
There's a knock at my door as I fall to the floor but I still don't know
(That's the way we all go)
That the people outside shed a tear for my pride but they still won't go
(That's the way we all go)
Why should I think I'm alone the whole factory thinks;
"That's the way we all go"
Then there's Washington, Tokyo, New York and Moscow
But that's the way we all go
They're all crying and arguing down the telephone
But that's the way we all go
Then there's me standing here with my whole life to spare

That's the way we all go
That's the way we all go
That's the way we all go
That's the way we all go
That's the way we all go

It's easier when you know how obviously but that's how it goes
(That's the way we all go)
Look at me now I know something that you don't 'cos
That's the way we all go
The turning wheel reeks of the whale and the whaler
But that's the way we all go
The early bird catches the worm does the worm think that
That's the way we all go?

@Lo In old Windows versions the personal user folder used to be called My Documents, and there was no Documents subfolder.

Lo

Why the heck do you have a Music subfolder in Documents
