lyrics

When my mother joined the circus
My father stayed away
She lost her inhibitions
And he lost the will to play

She came home at weekends
And danced about the house
He hid in the garden
Tending peas for his spouse

And yes he still loved her
Though it wasn't the same
He would still speak fond of
his old flame.

Well my mother played viola
In a vintage space folk band
My father never cared for them
And stayed sat in the van

She fell for the drummer
And one day took her leave
My father sold his motorbike
And then all he had was me

Yes he still loved her
Though it wasn't the same
He would still speak fond of
his old flame.

My father slipped inside himself
And left this girl alone
Smiling social services
Led me from my home

My mother picked me strawberries
The best I've ever had
I took lessons from the drummer
And now I call him pop

Yes he still loves her
He can remember her name
The old man still speaks of
his old flame.
