In a river the colour of lead
 +
Immerse a baby's head
 +
Wrap her up in the News Of The World
 +
Dump her on a doorstep, girl
 +
This night has opened my eyes
 +
And I will never sleep again

You kicked and cried like a bullied child
 +
A grown man of twenty-five
 +
He said he'd cure your ills
 +
But he didn't and he never will
 +
So, save your life
 +
Because you've only got one
 +
 
 +
The dream is gone
 +
But the baby is real
 +
Oh you did a good thing
 +
She could have been a poet
 +
Or, she could have been a fool
 +
Oh you did a bad thing
 +
And I'm not happy
 +
And I'm not sad
 +
 
 +
A shoeless child on a swing
 +
Reminds you of your own again
 +
She took away your troubles
 +
Oh but then again she left pain
 +
So please save your life
 +
Because you've only got one

Oh you did a bad thing

And I'm not happy

And I'm not sad
