Have you seen Jack-In-The-Green?
With his long tail hanging down.
He quietly sits under every tree 
in the folds of his velvet gown.

He drinks from the empty acorn cup
the dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
And taps his cane upon the ground 
signals the snowdrops it's time to grow.

It's no fun being Jack-In-The-Green 
no place to dance, no time for song.
He wears the colours of the summer soldier 
carries the green flag all the winter long.
Jack, do you never sleep 
does the green still run deep in your heart?
Or will these changing times,
motorways, powerlines,
keep us apart?
Well, I don't think so 
I saw some grass growing through the pavements today.

The rowan, the oak and the holly tree
are the charges left for you to groom.
Each blade of grass whispers Jack-In-The-Green.
Oh Jack, please help me through my winter's night.
And we are the berries on the holly tree.
Oh, the mistlethrush is coming.
Jack, put out the light.
