Belle And Sebastian – Le Pastie De La Bourgeoisie lyrics

Sunbeam shone, mousy girl on the end pew
You'd stay home, oh if only they let you
Le pastie de la bourgeoisie

Municipal pool, you're a junior life saver
But you're friends are all serious ravers
Le pastie de la bourgeoisie
Reading judy blume
But you came too soon

You're too tall, much too tall for a boyfriend
They run and hide, from your buck tooth and split ends
Don't be scared, like the books you've read
You're the heroine
You'll be doing fine

Wouldn't you like to get away?
Bestowing the memory of good and evil
On the ones you left behind
The heartless swine

And you love like nobody around you
How you love, and a halo surrounds you
Le pastie de la bourgeoisie
In the autumn cool
Say cheerio to school

Listen dear, I've been watching you lately
If I said all these things you would hate me
Le pastie de la bourgeoisie
At the church bazaar
I nearly went too far

Wouldn't you like to get away?
Give yourself up to the allure of
Catcher in the rye
The future's swathed in stars and stripes

Wouldn't you like to get away?
Kerouac's beckoning with open arms,
And open roads of eucalyptus
Westward bound
