lyrics

The grey plane trees hang on their leaves
For longer than the beech and hornbeam
And set ablaze the grey skyline
It reminds us of the great fire of London

Out in the woods a hundred miles away
A squirrel gathers nuts and leaves
So pack up all your things in crates
This good ship sets sail today

Waves roll by like months in Autumn
The shadows fall like leaves
Cling on tightly to the bow
In the morning we must leave
I will sleep 'til we get there

Looking back over last years
There's piles of rubbish where we used to play
And on the last day of September
This good ship sets sail today

So furl and hoist for fifty furlongs
Where we're going we cannot say
The Autumn wind billows our sails
And drifting we meander away

Waves roll by like months in Autumn
The shadows fall like leaves
Cling on tightly to the bow
In the morning we must leave
I will stop until we get there
