Ye sleeping knights of jesus by Robyn Hitchcock


OK, one, two, three, four
I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
Gazing out across the open sea
I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
And they look extremely tired to me
Dying of starvation in the gutter
That is all the future holds for me
Or alcoholic poisoning in the toilet of my choice
That's all there is as far as I can see
Fried to death in seconds by the Russians
Or if you're lucky, just a sudden stroke
A lingering death from fallout
As your teeth and hair fall out
And certain death from cancer if you smoke
But I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
Gazing out across the open sea
I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
And they look extremely tired to me
Put your faith in God, He won't expect you
Put your faith in death because it's free
If you believe in nothing, honey
It believes in you
For God's sake, don't waste any faith on me
When He comes to judge us in His glory
Then we'll see how old a man can get
He must be feeling ancient up there
On the rim of space
Two thousand years and He ain't been back yet
But, I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
(Rub their eyes) Rub their eyes and gape at what they see
I have seen the sleeping knights of Jesus
(And it looks as though) And it looks as though they've noticed me
And it looks as though they've noticed me
