Cathy Davey – Reuben lyrics

Reuben, I've been told
That you got fire in your pocket, filling every hole
Now it's old, it's old

Reuben, I've been told
You're selling fire to the devil
You're filling up his hole
Now he grows, he grows

Every time I hear you
I go howling in the half light
Ay ay ah-ooh
But every time I do, I wish I'd hear a little howl back
Ay ay ah-ooh
Hear a little howl back

Reuben, you've been seen
You're bringing sunshine before you
Riding on the beam
Now I'm told, I'm told

And how long you keep me still
I will be quiet for our lady, quiet for no evil
You may keep you business to yourself

Every time I hear you
I go howling in the half light
Ay ay ah-ooh
And every time I do, I wish I'd hear a little howl back
Ay ay ah-ooh
Hear a little howl back

Ooh...

Reuben, I've been told
That you got fire in your pocket
Filling every hole
And it's old, it's old

And how long you keep me still
I will be quiet for our lady, quiet for no evil
You may keep your business to yourself

Every time I hear you
I go howling in the half light
Ay ay ah-ooh
And every time I do, I wish I'd hear a little howl back
Ay ay ah-ooh
Hear a little howl back
