What would you say,
What would you say,
What would you say,
If someone knocked,

Where did he go,
Where did he go,
Where did he go,
There's nobody home but the doors unlocked,

And I saw a slave,
With a bayonet,
Purple shirt and an ear to the door,
I tried to save the whole wide world,
But I swear that I've been her before,

What is the meaning,
What is the meaning,
What is the meaning,
Of your scene,

Where is the green,
Where is the green,
Where is the green,
Grass that I call my home,


And I saw a slave,
With a bayonet,
Purple shirt and an ear to the door,
I tried to save the whole wide world,
But I swear that I've been her before,

Well I hold the bricks,
I hold the bricks,
I hold the bricks,
Until it's time,

And I'll hold your legs,
I'll hold your legs,
I'll hold your legs,
If you'll hold mine,

And I saw a slave,
With a bayonet,
Purple shirt and an ear to the door,
I tried to save the whole wide world,
But I swear that I've been her before,

And I saw a slave,
With a bayonet,
Purple shirt and an ear to the door,
I tried to save the whole wide world,
But I swear that I've been her before,
