      About "Bow Down"

      Lyrics for The Housemartins - "Bow Down"

      Mother, Father, I think that I would rather
      Stay at home with you for another year
      That building's so tall and it makes me feel so small
      That I might get lost and simply disappear

      Evil smiles won't change my mind
      I'm worried and I'm not the worrying kind
      Why's that man rubbing his hands
      Looking at me writing down his plans?

      Today I have been molding plasticine
      and I made a little man who looked just like me
      His limbs were so weak and he couldn't move his mouth to speak
      And I could bend him into any shape I wanted him to be

      Evil smiles won't change my mind
      I'm worried and I'm not the worrying kind
      Why's that man rubbing his hands
      Looking at me writing down his plans?

      Those kids with the blazers on
      They went in with names on their elbows
      Came home with medals on
      Spit it out that's the way the story goes

      A flying start for the briefcase crew
      Oh, you didn't have to teach me like you did
      But you did
      And you didn't have to beat me like you did
      But you did
      But you did
      You did
      You did
