"Playground (demo)" as written by and Andy Partridge....
I climb up, spending daylight
Slide down drunken on the other side
Some sweet girl, playing my wife,
Runs off with a boy whose bike she'll ride

Playground (it's a playground)
Marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
Playground (it's a playground)
Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square world

Bells will ring, door flings open
Hare and greyhound in the old kiss chase
You've been caught, game has ended
Smack on kisser from her slap on face

Playground (it's a playground)
We're marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
Playground (it's a playground)
Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square world

Watch the leaves all tear away (one by one)
Leaving you but lined like an exercise book
What did your report once say (know the one)
This boy must try harder to please
From down on his knees

Playground, playground, playground, playground, playground,
Playground, playground, playground

Brain gets bent, heart gets broken
You can't jump off once the page is turned
School is out but never over
That's the only lesson you can learn

Playground (it's a playground)
We're marked by the masters and bruised by the bullies in the
Playground (it's a playground)
Never stop rehearsing, rehearsing for the big square

Playground (it's a playground)
Go for the high jump if you let 'em push you in the
Playground (it's a playground)
There's no escaping, escaping from their big square world

You may leave school, but it never leaves you
