Silvia

Silvia, Silvia, Silvia,
I met you in the belly of a whale
Silvia, Silvia, Silvia
Oh where did you fail

Time passes slowly in the daylight
But I do not want to die
I met you in the belly of a wicked rhyme
And I read all your letters I could find

And the water is your friend
The water is your friend
And down and down and down you go
Gonna buy you a red dress,
And put feathers in your hair
And resurrect the finer things
I lost when you disappeared

Breaking on the daylight
They put flowers round your grave
And I sang a silly song for you
Hey hey hey hey hey
Silvia, Silvia

Silvia, Silvia, Silvia
I met you in the belly of a whale
Silvia, Silvia, Silvia,
Oh where did you fail

And the water is your friend
The water is your friend
And down and down and down you go
Gonna buy you a red dress
And put feathers in your hair
And resurrect the finer things
I lost when you disappeared

Breaking on the daylight
They put flowers round your grave
And I sang a silly song for you
Hey hey hey hey hey
Silvia, Silvia
