Child's Christmas in Wales

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Paris 1919 (1973).

With mistletoe and candle green
To Halloween we go
Ten murdered oranges bled on board ship
Lent comedy to shame

The cattle graze bolt uprightly
Seducing down the door
To saddle swords and meeting place
We have no place to go

Then wearily the footsteps worked
The hallelujah crowds
Too late, but wait, the long-legged bait
Tripped uselessly around

Sebastopol Adrianapolis
The prayers of all combined
Tear down the flags of ownership
The walls are falling down

A belt to hold Columbus too
Perimeters of nails
Perceived the mama's golden touch
Good neighbours were we all
