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.
