Levellers - Not What We Wanted Lyrics




Now it sees that night is day
My uneasy focus has slipped away
Drunk from the poison cup brings sheer relief to me
Head full of the news, twenty-first century

Bring along your old banjo, I want to hear you play
Gonna play an old sad song to blow away the day
One that trips off the tongue, I wanna hear what you say
Everybody sing along, now everybody pray

Because the first time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
First time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted

Changing weather blows away
But the slaughter and the showbiz
These are here to stay

So bring along your old banjo, I want to hear you play
Gonna play an old sad song to blow away the day
Everybody sing along, now everybody pray

Because the first time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
First time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted
This time that we had, it wasn't what we wanted

Changing weather blows away
