Lindisfarne – We Can Swing Together lyrics

No one came to criticie, no one to complain.
Just to bide a little bitty time, and play some human
Games.
Some were smokin' roll your owns, while others they had
None.
Everybody was holdin hands, and singing this little
Song.

We can swing together, 'cause we know we're doin it
Right,
We can swing together, we can swing all thru the night.

Then when things were happening, around about ten to
Four.
There was screachin of brakes, and smokin outside, and
Hammerin on the door.
Then the voice of officialdom, said open in the name of
The law.
We just kept on holdin hands, singing this song some
More.

We can swing together cause we know we're doing it
Right
We can swing together we can swing all thru the night

Then they broke down all the doors, and kicked the

Windows in.
They let the doggies off the leash, and ransacked
Everything.
They placed us all against the wall, their faces split
With grins.
And they linked each others handcuffs, and they merrily
Began to sing.

We can swing together cause we feel we're doing it
Right
We can swing together we can swing all thru the night

They took us to see the county judge, with a wig hat on
His head.
He read our case with a smile on his face, and this is
What he said.
I'll have to send you all to jail, for doin this
Terrible thing.
And as I walked off to the cells, I swear I heard him
Sing.

We can swing together cause we know we're doin it right
We can swing together we can swing all thru the night.
