Green Grow The Rushes




The wheelbarrow’s fallen.

Look at my hands.

They’ve found some surplus, cheaper hands

Rubbing palms and pick and choose

Who will they choose? Here is the news.



Look at that building, look at this man,

Haloed and whitewashed,

Gone to find a cheaper hand.

He’ll offer a pound, offer a pound.



Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

The compass points the workers home



Pay for your freedom and find another gate.

Guilt by associate. The rushes wilted a long time ago.

Guilty as you go.



Stay off that highway, word is it’s not so safe.

The grasses that hide the greenback,

The amber waves of gain, of gain.

The amber waves of gain.



Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

Green grow the rushes go

The compass points the workers home



La la la la lying
