Over the rise and over the posts
lie in the grass away from the posts (so)
wear white collars and confess you're the host and
nobody works for me!

Oh for elation!
Oh for the Russians!
Oh by the fences!
All for the down; all for the down!

I sing the matron's down-
down with the body
put the body in the ground-
Warm warm chocolate brown!
Nobody works for me...

I sit on the bed, lit on the rail,
watch as the bastards clear ice from the trail:
where was the world that was tender and frail?
Who's going to look after me?

Oh: machincation;
oh: water's rising;
oh: hatred station:
four fingered down, four fingered down:

Fall down, where's that gown?
Find that critter steal his crown! (rip his fucking head off):
where wooded flies? Where wooden bees?
Still their stingers do penetrate me:
love is a rotor la la; oh chocolate warm, chocolate warm:
who's going to work for me?

Do your duty! Do your duty!
I run from the sinking ground:
where you going to run when there is no ground?
Where you going to move when there is no ground?
Call greater heights for me: automation 1 2 3!
Greek lactations work for me...

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that the second line says "and lie in the grass and away from the post".
    And the first (?) says "and wear white clothes and confess to the host"
    But the second (?) I'm not too sure about at all, the best I could guess is "Love as I rode her la la"

    Also I have no idea what this song is about, though some of it probably has to do with sex.

    General CommentYou know almost all the Frog Eyes songs on this site are totally wrong. This one especially. I'm going to correct them all when I wake up tomorrow but for now, here are the correct lyrics to this one.

    General CommentIsn't it "Oh, for the nation! Oh, for the rations!"

    General CommentAlso I think it sounds more like "Where were the flys, where were the bees, feel their stingers penetrate me" and I am seriously convinced he says "Clitoris"
