Well, I'm caught one more time
Caught one more time

Not a thing that I can do
Before that mansion on the hill
Before that mansion on the hill
And my feet can't keep still
On the way back home from school
On the way back home from school
And call the autumn time a fool
Every, every, every time I try to speak
Every time I try to speak
I think I'll go on by the river with my cherry, cherry wine
If I pass the rumbling station where the lonesome engine drivers pine
Rainbow ribbons in her hair
Rainbow ribbons in her hair
She's returning from the fair

Up on Cyprus Avenue
Up on Cyprus Avenue
And I'm conquered in a car seat
Way up on, way up on, way up on, way up on, way up on, way up on, way up on
Keep walking down
You keep walking down when the sun shone through the trees
So young and bold, fourteen-year old
