The phone rings, it's early, it's seven o'clock
He says "Sorry I woke you, but I just had to talk"
You know last night, remember when I tried to choke you
I didn't mean it, I was drunk, it was only a joke

You should know that by now
When the chequered flag comes down
No one, no one, no one has won the race

The next night he's over and over and under
And after he's finished she lies there and wonders
Just why does she need him and why does she stay here?
And then in the darkness she'll quietly say "Dear"

You've never really known
That when the white flag is flown
No one, no one, no one has won the war

They're complicated people leading complicated lives
And he complicates their problems telling complicated lies
He tells her he's sorry, she tells him it's over
He tells her he's sorry, she says over and over

You've never really known
That when the white flag is flown
No one, no one, no one has won the war

There goes a forest and there goes a bluebird
There goes a partridge and there goes a go train
There goes an angel and there goes a steeple
There goes a cop car and there goes an eagle

There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
There goes a raven and there go the ribbons
The ribbons the ribbons, the ribbons of the flag

Of the flag
Of the flag
Of the flag
...
