Lyrics:River Of Orchids

by XTC

Album version:

   Heeeey!
   I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   Take a packet of seeds, take yourself out to play
   I want to see a river of orchids where we had a motorway

   Push your car from the road
   Push your car from the road
   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle

   It's all in your back yard
   You've the whole world at your feet
   Said the grass is always greener when it bursts up through concrete
   Push your car from the road
   Push your car from the road

   River of orchids winding our way
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day
   River of orchids the road overgrows
   Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose

   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   Yeah!
   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   You know you can do it

   I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   Take a packet of seeds, take yourself out to play
   I want to see a river of orchids where we had a motorway

           It's all in your back yard
   Push your car from the road
           You've the whole world at your feet
           Said the grass is always greener when it bursts up through concrete

   Take a packet of seeds
           Push your car from the road
   Take yourself out to play
   I want to see a river of orchids where we had a motorway

   River of orchids winding my way
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day
   River of orchids the road overgrows
   Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose

           I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   River of orchids winding my way
           I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day

           Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   River of orchids the road overgrows
           Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose

           I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   River of orchids winding my way
           I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day

           I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   River of orchids the road overgrows
           I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose 


Demo version:

   Hey!
   I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   I heard the dandelions roar in Piccadilly Circus
   Take a packet of seeds
   Take yourself out to play
   I want to see River of Orchids where we had a motorway
   Push your car from the road
   Push your car from the road
   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   Just like a mad dog you're chasing your tail in a circle
   It's all in your back yard
   You've the whole world at your feet
   I said the grass is always greener when it bursts up through
   concrete
   Push your car from the road
   Push your car from the road
   River of Orchids winding our way
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day
   River of Orchids the road overgrows
   Want to walk into London smelling like a beggar rose
   Just like a mad dog ... | Yeah! You know you can do it
   Just like a mad dog...
   I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   I had a dream where the car is reduced to a fossil
   Take a packet of seeds
   Get yourself out to play
   I want to see River of Orchids where we had a motorway
   Push your car...        | It's all in your back yard...
   Push your car...        | Take a packet of seeds...
   River of Orchids winding my way
   Want to walk into London on my hands one day
   River of Orchids the road overgrows
   Want to walk into London smelling like a Peckham rose
   River of Orchids...     | I heard the Dandelions...
   River of Orchids...     | Just like a mad dog...
   River of Orchids...     | I had a dream...
   River of Orchids...     | I heard the Dandelions...
