A-tishoo A-tishoo we all fall down
You learnt it in school
You're remembering now, with a laugh
The sting from the cane of the nuns
If you fell out of time
Out of the round

This story this story's your anchor today
Over and over
I hear it the same as the last
The half hour barely shifts the reflections
Of light on the glass
Between us, and you say:

Take me home
I don't want to be here
Anymore
The clock on the wall says it's
No time at all
Since they put me in

A-tishoo A-tishoo we all fall down
You remember your Rosie
How she nearly drowned by the school
Old Sister Mary threw off her habit
And dived in
Oh the whipping and the grounding
You got for it all

I promise I promise, I'll ask them again
When we can go walking
And I'll book in time for your hair
You saw me for your birthday, yes,
It has already been
I'm sorry for the time and I'm sorry no hugs
And you say

Take me home
I don't want to be here
Anymore
The clock on the wall says it's
No time at all
Since I was just a girl
