Lifting the mask from a local clown, feeling down like him
Seeing the light in a station bar and travelling far in sin
Sailing downstairs to the northern line, watching the shine of the shoes
And hearing the trials of the people there
Who's to care if they lose?

Take a look you may see me on the ground
For I am the parasite of this town

Dancing a jig in a church with chimes, a sign of the times today
And hearing no bell from a steeple tall, people all in dismay
Falling so far on a silver spoon, making the moon for fun
Changing a rope for a size too small, people all get hung

Take a look you may see me coming through
For I am the parasite who travels two by two

But I'm lifting the mask from a local clown and feeling down again
And I'm seeing the light in a station bar and travelling far in sin
And I'm sailing downstairs to the northern line, watching the shine of
the shoes
And hearing the trials of the people there
Who's to care if they lose?

Take a look you may see me on the ground
For I am the parasite of this town
And take a look you may see me on the dirt
For I am the parasite who hangs from your skirt


NOTE:  Just a fixing of the lyrics, since I have the Fruit Tree box set
lyrics now.
(from Pink Moon, 1972)
