lyrics

Well, a country house ain't no place for a lady with eyes
Those yolks are magnets, don't you dare keep her inside
She can see all the lights
Patent Eighteen Sixty-Five
And a barristers mansion don't allow for expansion of sight

Well, a country house ain't no place for a lady with a nose,
Olfactory wonders, the bovine pungence of toes
She's not the type
To sit sniffing bouquets all night
And this barristers mansion don't allow her to smell like she might

Well, a country house ain't no place for a lady with a tongue
The boredom of bland british beef renders it numb
And in her dreams
She tastes everything that she sees
And a barristers mansion ain't no place for thoughts like these

Red hens rolling up and down the tracks
Hills and Henley, Northfield lines are back
Gertrude won't you sit back and relax
Meet Mr. Sargent
