See the medal reverse
This hope is not lost
There's mischief to turn
Your ship to send off

Barbed wits and gowns
They'll ransack this town
I'd rescue you now
But in velvet you'll drown,
And dance again...

Oh, austere
Lay by my side
You've been left here
So you'll make no sound
Hey last word,
Don't let me down
Just tell another,
Unfinished story now
