15: PARDON ME

 

When the leaves fall round,

Your earthly heads,

Won't you pardon me.

When you see them flying, then you'll surely know,

That their course defying, the way in which they go.

To wiser men they've been lying, just to tap the flow.

Won't you pardon me (5 times )

 

When the leaves fall round,

Your earthly heads,

Won't you pardon me.

Now the men awaken, grab their guns too soon.

The first shot will be taken, the life of the afternoon.

While the boys are shaking, their fist at the silver spoon.

Won't you pardon me (5 times )

 

When the leaves fall round,

Your earthly heads,

Won't you pardon me

 

And to this day I never spent time on my knees.

Punish me in life I will stay cool.

Nursing the letters I write from misery,

I know some day you'll pardon me.

Know some day you'll pardon me.

In case of critters I'll stand, in this critter filled land.

And I don't need to look inside your book, to understand.

Won't you pardon me (5 times )

When the leaves fall round,

Your earthly heads,

Won't you pardon me
