Lyrics:Let's Make A Den

by XTC

Let's make a den
    What shall we use?
Make it out of hay
    Who will be leader?
In it we can play at both being mothers and fathers
Until we have children of our own.

Let's make a den
    What shall we use?
Make it out of wood
    Who will be leader?
Wouldn't it be good if we could fight off rival gangs
And take total possession of the hill
For the rest of our days?

Isn't that what we can all look forward to when we grow up?
Isn't that what we can all look forward to?
Behind the door, women and men
Love and war inside of our den.

Let's make a den
    What shall we use?
Make it out of bricks
    Who will be leader?
In it how the sticks and stones will fly
But my oh my won't we have fun
When later on we patch it up?

Let's make a den
    What shall we use?
Make it from cement
    Who will be leader?
In it we can pent up all of our fears
But give presents each Christmas
Like there was nothing ever wrong
For the rest of our days.

Isn't that what we can all look forward to when we grow up?
Isn't that what we can all look forward to?
Behind the door, women and men
Love and war inside of their den.

Well you can wear your brand new nurse's outfit,
And I can wear my brand new cowboy suit.
Everything unchanging
Just furniture arranging

Let's make a den
    What shall we use?
Make it underground
    Who will be leader?
Protect us from the flash and sound
Of the big stick they drop just to stop us
From cuddling and hanging on for the rest of our days.
