A Thousand Trees
Standing at the bus stop with my shopping In my hands when I'm overhearing elder Ladies as the rumors start to fly you can Hear them in the school yard, in the scrap yard In the chip shop, in the phone box, in the pool hall at The shoe stall every corner turned around It started with a school girl who was Running running home to her mam and Dad told them she was playing in the Change room of her local football side they Said tell us again so she told them again They said tell us the truth they found it hard To believe 'cause he taught our Steve he Even trained me taught uncle john who's Father of three But it only takes one tree to make A thousand matches Only takes one match to burn A thousand trees A thousand trees You see it in the class room in the Swimming pool where the matchstick men Are made at the scouts hall at the football Where the wise we trust are paid they all Honor his name he did a lot for the game He got his name knocked up above the Sports ground gates but now they are Ripping them down stamping the ground Picture gathers dust behind the bar in the Lounge it takes one tree to make A thousand matches Only takes one match to burn A thousand trees A thousand trees Wake up and smell the rain shake up he's Back to stay he hasn't been on a holiday His growing seeds don't believe why he's Been away in the school yard change room Playing fields bathroom phone box office Blocks corner turned around they keep Doubting the flame tossing the blame got His name knocked up above the sports Ground gates but now they're Ripping them down stamping the ground Picture gathers dust in the bar in the Lounge it takes one tree to make A thousand matches Only takes one match to burn A thousand trees A thousand trees A thousand trees
