Dancing in the Moonlit Knight - The Genesis

Dancing in the Moonlit Knight
 
"Can you tell me where my country lies?",
Said the unifaun to his true love's eyes.
"It lies with me" cried the Queen of Maybe
For her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

"Paper late" cried a voice in the crowd.
"Old man dies", the note he left was signed 'Old Father Thames'
It seems he's drowned, selling England by the pound.

Citizens of Hope and Glory,
Time goes by, it's the time of your life
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your wimpey dreams,
They eat without a sound, digesting England by the pound.

Young man says "You are what you eat", eat well
Old man says "You are what you wear", wear well
You know what you are, you don't give a damn,
Bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

The captain leads his dance right on through the night,
Join the dance, follow on, till the grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on, till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon,
Laying out the credit cards she plays fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start
And all of their hands are playing apart.

The captain leads his dance right on through the night
Join the dance, follow on, a round table, talking down we go.
You're the show, off we go with
You play the hobby horse, I'll play the fool.
We'll tease the bull, ringing round and loud, loud and round.

Follow on, with a twist of the world we go.
Follow on, till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.
