Echo & The Bunnymen – Polly lyrics

_________________
Polly put the kettle on
I met a man
And asked of them
He told me that
The pound was strong


I knew that bridge was falling
So jimmy put the gas masks on
And swam and swam
Up to the dam
And everyone came along


Don't think we can talk _______
____________ making war
Don't think we can risk it
Another heavy biscuit __________
Can I beat the count of ten
I'm lying just to stay alive
Dying in my _________ again
Taken to a dive
Trying to survive


When's it going to take you
And how's it gonna make you feel
You can't even spell it
So how you gonna tell
If it's real?


A bomb blew up my shelter
I never even felt a thing
I brushed away the dust and
Gave ole jimmy custer a ring


Don't think we can talk _______
____________ making war
Don't think we can risk it
Another heavy biscuit __________
Can I beat the count of ten
I'm lying just to stay alive
Dying in my _________ again
Taken to a dive
Trying to survive


I knew that bridge was falling
So jimmy put the gas masks on
And swam and swam
Up to the dam
And everyone came along
