could somebody bring the as-yet-not-totally-interpreted-and-agreed-upon lyrics of The Last Living Rose and Let England Shake over from the old Garden and post them here? (I tried to do so but found, of course, that only the Admins have that ability.) or if somebody copied those lyrics already, could you post them in this forum (to let the interpretation discussion continue)?

What ability are you referring to? Are you not able to access the page? Or would you like us to archive the thread like the ones on the Multimedia forum? You should be able to read the forum, if you're not there's something wrong with the permissions and we need to fix it.

Here they are as posted by DrDark.


Let England Shake
Originally posted at http://thegarden.forum5.com/viewtopic.php?t=1703.

Started by natural high over in atforumz with major modifications for what I hear. This one is really tough, probably WAY off here.

The West's asleep let England shake
Weighted down in silent death
I fear our blood will rise again
Will rise again

England's dancing days are done
Another day for you to come
Come and tell me a difference
Is one one one (won?)

Smile smile Bobby with your lovely mouth
Pack away the troubles lets head out
To the fountain the fountain of death
Splash about swim back back back

Until the day is ending
And the birds are silenced
And the insects are courting
And by the shores heavy stones are falling

Smile smile Bobby with your lovely mouth
Pack away the troubles lets head out
To the fountain the fountain of death
Splash about swim back forth back back
And laugh out loud

Take me back to Constantinople
No you can't go back to Constantinople..



Can't help but wonder if Polly is making a political statement here.

Here's the links:

The Last Living Rose
Originally posted http://thegarden.forum5.com/viewtopic.php?t=1701

from hex object and natural high over in atforumz, with a couple of adjustments for what I hear.


For all that's European (?)
Take me back to beautiful England
And the grey, damp filthiness of ages
And battered books and

Fog rolling down behind the mountains
On the graveyards and dead sea captains
Let me walk through the stinkin' alleys
To the music of drunken beings

Past the Thames river glistenin'
Like gold hastily sold for nothing
Nothing!

Let me watch night fall on the river
The moon rise up and turn to silver
The sky move the ocean shimmer
The hand shake the last living rose
Quiver

I hear "beings" not "beatings", "hand" not "heads". The 1st line is a mystery..

I was trying to use the "quote" function, thus to capture/copy the text in order to paste it, but got the message "Sorry, but only administrators can reply to posts in this forum".

Oh, that's right. Unfortunately the quote function comes with permissions to reply, and because we've locked the forums replies are not allowed. You can still do a simple copy-and-paste and credit the author, or select it and hit the [Quote] button above. To quote as "x person wrote", the format is quote="author's name here" (e.g. [quote="Pollyphoniac"]).

"Let England Shake" reminds me of Howe Gelb's "B 4 U (Do Do Do)" - same kind of song mix-up technique and beat.

it seems to me that Polly does too, at least she did on this occasion:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h9aWoR5 ... re=related

really, the words are "to the music of drunken beatings", listen carefully and tell me if I'm mistaken here.

She *definitely* sings "to the music of drunken beatings" that time.

hey guys, yeah I've been slack on the new forum! :/ Been popping in a bit more regularly lately tho.

QLD is rocking along just fine. :) Although it's been pissing down rain actually. haha.
Floods galore!

I can't believe it's all gone..Thankfully I copied one or two of my ramblings re: the WC tour etc.

drunken beatings is one of my favourite bits hahaha

It seems like ages since anything new. :(

We can correct the beginning of Let England Shake (above) from this:

"The West's asleep let England shake
Weighted down in silent death"

to this:

"The West's asleep. Let England shake
Weighted down with silent dead"
