Barenaked Ladies – The Flag lyrics

The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock,
He says 'sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk
You know last night, remember
When I tried to choke you?
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it
Was only a joke.'
You should know that by now,
When the checkered flag comes down,
No one no one no one has won the race.

The next night he's over and over and under
And after he's finished, she lies there and wonders
Just why does she need him, and
Why does he stay here,
And then in the darkness, she'll
Quietly say 'Dear,
You've never really known
That when the white flag is flown,
No one no one no one has won the war.'

They're complicated people
Leading complicated lifes,
And he complicates their problems
By telling complicated lies
He tells her he's sorry, she tells him 'It's over, '
And he tells her he's sorry, she says over and over
'You've never really known
That when the white flag is flown,
No one no one no one has won the war.'

There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go
The ribbons the ribbons the ribbons
The ribbons of the flag, of the flag, of the flag, of the flag, of the flag,
Of the flag, of the flag.
