Lyrics

Giant lizards in the sky Wide wings take them high

Flapping and stopping, leaving their droppings

For millions of years right here

The years pass and the grass grows

The grass grows over the years disappear

And here we are, we stand right here

Up above people come and go

Their pigs and cows moving slow

Free to graze upon the ground

'Til a Lord puts a fence around

Nowhere for the pigs and cows

And with the people starving now

One Jack 'o the Style, he leads a revolt

They break down the fence and call a halt

The years pass and the grass grows

The grass grows over the years disappear

And here we are, we stand right here

One John Ball from Barnwell way

Said beneath the grass there lay

Some magic stuff which if ye had enough

Would make any plant grow

Very few knew the reason why

Was down to lizards in the sky

Flapping and stopping, leaving their droppings

For millions of years right here

The years pass and the grass grows

The grass grows over the years disappear

And here we are, we stand right here
