lyrics

LARK - THE OPERATION

24TH OF JANUARY 1943
A CORPSE WITH A NEW HISTORY
LOVE LETTERS IN MY POCKETS
FAKE GIRLFRIENDS, SILVER LOCKETS
UNLAMENTED WITH NO FAMILY
CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY
GLYNDWR MICHAEL, I’M BURIED AT SEA
C-C-C-C-C COME AND GET ME

THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME
THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME
THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME
A SPANISH FISHERMAN DISCOVERED ME
IN A SUBMARINE BEHIND SARDINES
THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME
THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSION OF ME

I GOT A NEW PERSONALITY
I GOT A NEW PERSONALITY
I GOT A NEW PERSONALITY
A SPANISH FISHERMAN DISCOVERED ME AT SEA
A CORPSE WHO CHANGED THE FACE OF HISTORY
A CORPSE WHO CHANGED THE FACE OF HISTORY

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO SICILY
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO SICILY

THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME
THEY ALL FELL IN LOVE WITH THEIR VERSIONS OF ME

MY FAKE GIRLFRIEND WITH HER FAKE GOLD LOCKET
ALL THESE LOVE LETTERS IN MY POCKET
MY FAKE GIRLFRIEND WITH HER FAKE GOLD LOCKET
ALL THESE LOVE LETTERS IN MY POCKET
