A one, two, three. There's a haze on the skyline, to wish me on my way - And there's a note on the telephone - some roses on a tray. And the motorway's stretching right out to us all, as I pull on my old Wings - one white duck on your wall. Isn't it just too damn real? one white duck on your wall. One duck on your wall.

You can see from the fireplace, one white duck on your wall. Isn't it just too damn real? one white duck on your wall. One duck on your wall.
