Auteurs – The Child Brides lyrics

When I first saw the child brides
Two bridegroom boys at their side
Genevieve in union with -holy communion
Marianne the younger wife

And the child brides
Went down to the water
Neptune calls out to his daughters
Throw yourself at the tide
Iґll see you on the other side

In a loveless marriage - when I was fourteen
All braised knees and black eyes
Then you come round here
With your fancy talk and big ideas
What have you done with our wives


Bride of Christ, bride of Jesus
Bride of the fish when youґre fathoms down
And the uncles and the brother
With their Sunday suits on
Search the village and towns
But the child brides etc.
