She wore a black tiara
And she came from distant waters

Of the new wastes of winter
On the icy road.
With chill mists swirling
Sighted on horizons

A deathly distant rumble
In melting crystal tears.
Capturing black pieces
The white queen rolls

Pausing briefly in the corries
And a new age is born.
Driving all before her
Her cold creaking mass

To embrace the sill-warm bundles
Of a white London Town.
Oh, sunshine take me now away from here
And the turntable spins

Something's on the move.
