Barenaked Ladies Lyrics
13. The Flag
The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock. He says sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you? I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke. You should know that by now, when the chequered flag comes down, no one no one no one has won the race. The next night he's over and over and under and after he's finished she lies there and wonders just why does she need him and why does she stay here and then in the darkness she'll quietly say Dear, you've never really known that when the white flag is flown, no one no one no one has won the war. They're complicated people leading complicated lives, and he complicates their problems by telling complicated lies He tells her he's sorry, she tells him it's over, he tells her he's sorry, she says over and over You've never really known that when the white flag is flown, no one no one no one has won the war. There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird There goes a partridge and there goes a Go Train There goes an angel and there goes a steeple There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle There goes a raven and there go the ribbons There goes a raven and there go the ribbons There goes a raven and there go The ribbons the ribbons the ribbons The ribbons of the flag.
