About The Riddle

"The Riddle" is a song by the English singer-songwriter Nik Kershaw. It was released in 1984 as the lead single from the album of the same name. Kershaw described the lyrical content as being nondescript to fill as a "guide vocal" for the production. It reached number three on the UK Singles Chart and peaked within the top 10 in countries like Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand. An accompanying music video was made for the song and features references to Lewis Carroll's book Alice in Wonderland. The song was covered by many artists, most notably by Gigi D'Agostino (1999) and Jack Holiday and Mike Candys (2012).

I got two strong arms 
Blessings of Babylon 
Time to carry on and try 
For sins and false alarms 
So to America the brave 
Wise men save 

Near a tree by a river 
There's a hole in the ground 
Where an old man of Aran 
Goes around and around 
And his mind is a beacon 
In the veil of the night 
For a strange kind of fashion 
There's a wrong and a right 
Near a tree by a river 
There's a hole in the ground 
Where an old man of Aran 
Goes around and around 
And his mind is a beacon 
In the veil of the night 
For a strange kind of fashion 
There's a wrong and a right 
He'll never, never fight over you 

Near a tree by a river 
There's a hole in the ground 
Where a old man of Aran 
Goes around an around 
And his mind is a beacon 
In the veil of the night 
For a strange kind of fashion 
There's a wrong and a right 
Near a tree by a river 
There's a hole in the ground 
Where a old man of Aran 
Goes around an around 
And his mind is a beacon 
In the veil of the night 
For a strange kind of fashion 
There's a wrong and a right 
He'll never, never fight over you 

I got plans for us 
Nights in the scullery 
And day instead of me 
I only know what to discuss 
Of for anything but light 
Wise men fighting over you 

It's not me you see 
Pieces of valentine 
With just a song of mine 
To keep from burning history 
Seasons of gasoline and gold 
Wise men fold 

Near a tree by a river 
There's a hole in the ground 
Where an old man of Aran 
Goes around and around 
And his mind is a beacon 
In the veil of the night 
For a strange kind of fashion 
There's a wrong and a right 
He'll never, never fight over you 

I got time to kill 
Sly looks surround it all 
Without a plan of yours 
A blackbird sings on bluebird hill 
Thanks to the calling of the wild 
Wise mens' child
