Waterloo Roses  (‘blurbsong’ for Hylda’s novel, Waterloo Roses) 

Bedelia, oh Bedelia
Your hair’s the colour of the sun, some summer evening
Before the daylight’s gone
There’s wit and wisdom on your tongue, I see you’re grieving
Standing all alone
I just want to sleep with you
Down there in WaterlooDoing all those little things that other lovers do
I’ll make the stir fry, put the cat out, wash the dishes too
& love you love you love you through the night
In Waterloo – oo – oo (4)

Do nothing, till you hear from Stig, do nothing

Out on the streets he looks so weird
His rips and rags, his mouldy beard
He was out there, now he’s disappeared
He’s gone, moving on (2)
Do nothing till you hear from Stig, do nothing

Bedelia, oh Bedelia
Why can’t you love your flaky Jake, I’m yours for taking
This loner needs a break
I’m lost in free fall for your sake, and I’m not faking
I tell you it’s no joke
I just want to sleep with you
Down there in Waterloo
Playing all those tender games that other lovers do
I’ll kiss your nose, I’ll kiss your toes, I’ll take you to the moon
& love you love you love you through the night
In Waterloo – oo – oo (4)

Do nothing, till you hear from Stig, do nothing

Out on the streets the whole day long
Where does he sleep, what’s he done wrong
He holds a rose, he hums a song
He’s gone, moving on
Do nothing till you hear from Stig, do nothing

Bedelia, oh my Bedelia
That body lying by the door, and it ain’t blinking
There’s blood across the floor
White’s turned to red, somebody’s dead, my poor heart’s sinking
Who’s going to pay the score
No matter what or who
Down here in Waterloo
I’ll risk my life, I’ll hide the knife I’ll swear that false is true
I’ll lie on oath, give up the ghost, I’ll sell my soul for you
And love you love you love you through the night… in Waterloo…

Do nothing till you hear from Stig, do nothing…
