    "On Suicide Bridge" Lyrics

    Fatima Mansions

    On Suicide Bridge, I found myself one spring morning
    in the frigid sunshine, weary of the humiliations of
    the Crouch End. There I was.
    An old lady passed me. She smiled and said,
    "Good morning, young man." I looked at her and I said,
    "I'm going to kill myself.
    " She smiled again and said, "Yes, I think that's a very good idea."

    On Suicide Bridge one winter's day
    My eyes were sprouting lemons
    I had paid a Greek to listen to me speak
    He said "Limasol *, she beckons."
    And so my subjects gathered beneath me there
    I gave a mighty roar
    "Wi' me too-rye-ah, fah-la-deedle-dah"--
    "Shut up, Irish bore!"

    Come back, my children! Come back! Come back!
    All that was lost has been regained, shall remain with us
    Now and forever, amen.
    Come back! Come back! Come back, my children! Come back!

    * A city in Crete.
