Walking on velvet green.
Isn't it rare to be taking the air, singing.
Walking on velvet green.
Never a care: with your legs in the air, loving.

Go down on velvet green, with a country man.
Tell your mother that you walked all night on velvet green.
There lies your reputation and all that you're worth.
Tell your mother that you walked all night on velvet green.
And August's rare delight may be April's fool.
I'm tight against the seam.

And if we live the lie, let's lie in trust.
that washes out the wild oat seed on velvet green.
of civilizations raging afar.
As you walk home cold and alone upon velvet green.
Walking on velvet green.
Isn't it rare to be taking the air, singing.
Walking on velvet green.
Never a care: with your legs in the air, loving.
