    "The Green Boy" Lyrics

    Robyn Hitchcock

    First blood
    The man in breeches leans against the wall
    And keeps a green-striped clove ball in his pouch
    You know him as your friend but he is
    Filling in for someone

    First come
    The girl in breeches bends her head and sighs
    And rubs a green-striped gourd across her palm
    You know her as your love but she is
    Marking time just marking time

    Hold to me say to me kiss to me fall for me
    Do to me
    What you will
    And all the answers are the same as they have been before
    And all the questions are the same as you've been looking for
    My friend

    First served
    The man in green-striped tights is now inside
    He picks his teeth with fragments of his lute
    You chose him as your guard but he is
    Here with you and no one else
    There's no one else
    Hold to me say to me kiss to me fall for me
    Do to me
    What you will
    What you will
