fly in a web

there's a star shining brightly its winking at me
don't need to be worried said the cat to the flea
i don't know where i'm going or where i belong
but i know that i'm happy where it all begun

one day a nice chef asked what's bothering me
i said i don't want the scraps or smelly fish for my tea
i just want a t-bone and some sweet apple pie
and i'll be one happy woman before i die

knots in my head a tangled fly in a web
caught in confusion can't get out of the bed
the piping shrike's calling got a thumping head
well jump over that high hurdle the fat man said

head flat on my pillow nodding off to sleep
thinking of a teddy cuddling me
where's all those red ripe apples on that big ol' tree
well i'll be having words to the birds and the bees

knots in my head a tangled fly in a web
caught in confusion can't get out of the bed
the piping shrike's calling got a thumping head
well jump over that high hurdle the fat man said

from the burning sun of barmera to the summer scottish rain
i have tripped across the globe to relieve this burning pain
and i can see a faint reflection as i look to the ground
though i carry lines of worry once lost but now i'm found

knots in my head a tangled fly in a web
caught in confusion can't get out of the bed
the piping shrike's calling got a thumping head
well jump over that high hurdle the fat man said

knots in my head a tangled fly in a web
caught in confusion can't get out of the bed
the piping shrike's calling got a thumping head
well jump over that high hurdle the fat man said
