Lyrics:The Last Balloon

by XTC

Album version:

   The last balloon is leaving, the last balloon from fear
   The last balloon is leaving, form that line right here

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you menfolk
   You won't need any bombs or knives
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you menfolk
   Leave all that, to your former lives
   Drop it all

   The last balloon is leaving, the last balloon of all
   The last balloon is leaving, undress, discard, let fall

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you women
   You won't need any gems or furs
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you women
   Leave all that to the bad old years
   Drop it all

   The last balloon is leaving, the last balloon they'll fly
   The last balloon is leaving and we won't qualify

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you children
   Move aloft, while you're fleet and fast
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you children
   We're weighed down by our evil past

   Drop us all, you should drop us all
   Drop us all and free your hand
   Drop us all, you should drop us all
   Drop us all like so much sand 


Demo version:

   The Last Balloon is leaving
   The last balloon from fear
   The last balloon is leaving
   Form that line right here

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you menfolk
   You won't need any bombs or knives
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you menfolk
   Leave 'em there, to your former lives

   Drop it all

   The last balloon is leaving
   The last balloon of all
   The last balloon is leaving
   Undress, discard, let fall

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you women
   You won't need any gems or furs
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you women
   Leave all that to the bad old years

   Drop it all

   The last balloon is leaving
   The last balloon they'll fly
   The last balloon is leaving
   And we won't qualify

   Climb aboard, climb aboard you children
   Move aloft, while your feet (?) fast
   Climb aboard, climb aboard you children
   World right down, by our revoked pass

   Drop us all, you should drop us all
   drop us all, free your head
   drop us all, drop us all,
   drop us all like so much sand
