Lyrics
And how will we know

When it comes to a close

Will the stars tumble down one by one?

The festival’s done

The punters are gone

As fleet as a midsummer moon



Chorus

So take me dancing, like it’s the end of the world

The beautiful freaks are still dancing

Like it’s the end of the world

The toothless old man with the squeezebox is playing a tune, like the end of the world

So darling one more mazurka

’Til it is time to go



The relics are back in their boxes again

The drunks are asleep where they fell

We laughed at the priests

Threw mud at their feet

We did the old carnival well



And where will we go?

Which is our road?

The hare’s path lies over the downs

But ours is the way

So travellers say

That keeps the whole thing spinning round



The lie of the land

An old caravan

We are ready to leave with the light

So tether the lark

Haul back the dark

Just one more dance for the night
