Johnny take a drag Johnny take a drag One wont hurt you Johnny take a drag Take it nice and deep Take it nice and deep One wont hurt you Take it nice and deep Never born never die never ever wonder why, you lived your life by half past ten Nothings never lost You leave it in a box The cost can’t count you Nothings never lost Learn to be alive Learn to be alive Be cheap, be hasty Learn to be alive Never born never die never ever wonder why, you lived your life by half past ten
The voices and choices they make their demands On living and loving he has no command The horses and course that lead him astray Are reasons and demons to finish the day The beast and the beauty is down at his knees The cash in the attic is all that he sees The tit and the tattle the things left unsaid Are breeding and brooding and wetting his bed
I don’t think much I’ve got nothing to say I don’t have anything to give I want the lot I don’t have time I can’t play the same as you I gave up everything at school I’ve got the lot
Sow all your seed and tattoo your hedgerow Totem rose Bury the bulldog under the garden Ideal home The Bramble Breed Have gone to seed Passion's a weed so cut back your carpet Breathe through your clothes Nodding and laughing left footed dancing For those in the know Set out your stall put lead in the basket Home counties code The Bramble Breed Have gone to seed They're building a bomb fire under your window For martyrs and moles Thinking thorny thoughts Playing small town sports The Bramble Breed Have gone to seed
