Marigold and Jimmy
Joined the big debate
Everybody's talking about
The human state

They listened to the stories
Of figures and defence
Then joined the line
For individual arguments
And said

'What we find
Are tough, hard times
And love falls far

Said Marigold to Jimmy
'Let's walk the avenue
From the church and down the lane
To the old whirlpool

And while the water's spinning
Let's dance our hearts away
And when the music stops
We'll have a long embrace
And I'll

Feast my eyes
I'll feast my eyes
I'll feast my eyes
On you'
