Its hard to live in the country
In the present state of things
Your body gets pulled right back
You get a terrible urge to drink

At three a.m.
The stick people recede
The locals get up your nose
And leather soles stick on cobble stones

Its hard to live in the country
It has a delicate ring
Nymphette new romantics come over the hill
It gets a bit depressing

Paper local
Drunken scandal
Publish your address as well
Locals surround where you dwell
Old ladies confiscate your gate railings
For government campaigns

Its tough in home country
Councils hold the ring
D. bowie look-alikes
Permeate car parks
Grab the churches while you can
Yellow cabins by methodist doors
New jersey car parks permeated by
D. bowie sound-alikes

Its good to live in the country
You can get down to real thinking
Walk around look at geometric tracery
Hedgehogs skirt around your leathered soles
Fall down drunk on the road
Its good to live in the country

Look at yourself as a man
The valley rings with ice-cream vans
Its good to live in the country

Leather soles stick on precinct flagstones
Small up town americas like your outskirt town

The villagers
Are surrounding the house
The locals have come for their due
Its hard to live in the country
