clea and mcleod

Rock the Pram (Clea and McLeod)

knees together, sit up nice

smile don’t laugh

and live no life

they’re watching over us

from such an early age

they’re watching over us

they tell us we’re insane

watching over

we rock the pram 

and shake the cage

watching over

we laugh and laugh

and shake with rage

i have an old lady

i have a little girl

they live in me

they tell me what to do

they live in me

they look right into you

they live in me

under the skin

they live in me

and we laugh and laugh

our hearts are full of sin

knees together sit up nice

shut your mouth and live no life

they’re watching over me

much closer than the boys

watching over me

they tell me i’m too coy

watching over me

they miss my secret ploy

and watching over

we laugh and laugh

and shake with joy

knees together sit up nice

shut your mouth and live no life

sometime it’s more it’s more

it’s more than i can manage

so i just crawl and crawl

and crawl just like a savage

so i just crawl and crawl

and rock the pram 

and shake the cage

so i just crawl and crawl

and laugh and laugh

and shake with rage

tonight the jailor will dream of the axe

dreams

in moonlight he sees the old woman of

grace

who after each stroke of his axe to her skull

turns ‘round and laughs in his

laughs in his laughs

in his face

i have an old lady

i have a little girl

they live in me

in the pride of my body

they live in me

not so quietly

they live in me

we rock the pram

and shake the cage

they live in me 

and we laugh and laugh

and shake with rage
