Strangelove

Short shrift to the weathermen, she rests her case, she has made her own weather for the longest days, she waxed philosophical and made her peace with loveless days.

She looked from the citadel and sang her song and ran through the heather with her high heels on and cried out to mother earth to meet her creature needs.

She gave up the catacombs of love's young dream and fell from the Everest of high ideals and lived in the forest with the feral things of the night.

And time went on and on and on and on and on.
Time went on and on and on and on and on - (and) in the depth of the night she heard 
the wind whisper a weird refrain - (it whispered) Strangelove, a stranger's gonna come, a 
strangelove's gonna come (right on time love)!

Dressed like Guinevere in a velvet cloak she lived in a cavern far from townsmen folk and baked bread unleavened in a stone circle oven of fire and smoke.

She lurked in the shadows and crept round town and stole a sarcophagus for a bridal gown that she kept like a lot of us only in memory.

She haunted the widow and the old-maid hen saying it doesn't matter they're only men and she tarred and feathered an effigy of all roving men.

And time went on and on and on and on and on.
Time went on and on and on and on and on - (and) in the depth of the night she heard 
the wind whisper a weird refrain - (it whispered) Strangelove, a stranger's gonna come, a 
strangelove's gonna come (right on time love)!

And nothing but rancorous feigning in repose.
While far away a lonely-heart young man saddled his horse.
And riding by himself only the wind blew by his side.
To lead him to a god-forsaken forest - for his bride.

And don't try to find her, our Guinevere, she dances in a red dress and has good cheer, he spins her by the waist and smacks her pert little bum.
(Says) ask anything and babe, it will be done.
(Says) hide anywhere and I'll come hunting you down.

With one hand on the reins and the other in her hand.
They dipped beneath the trees and rode out to the sand.
And streaked in sunset hues he said - 

an angel, an angel has come, her angel has come right on time love.
