"Dancing With the Moonlit Knight [Part]" as written by Anthony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel and Steven Hackett....
"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
Said the uni faun 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 & 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

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 hobbyhorse,
I'll play the fool
We'll tease the bull
Ringing round & loud, loud & 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
