        D     Asus4 A/C#  Aadd11
For the love, Iʼd   fallen on
       D      Asus4 A/C# Aadd11
in the swampy August    dawn
       D        Asus4 A/C#  Aadd11              E
what a mischief you   would bring young darling!
         A/C#        Aadd11   E
when the onus is not all your own
            A/C#      Aadd11        E
when youíre up for it before youíve grown
         A/C#        Aadd11   A/C#
Wo-oo-ah oh ah oh ah oh

from the faun forever gone
in the towers of your honeycomb
Iíd a tore your hair out just to climb back darling
when youíre filling out your only form
can you tell that itʼs just ceremoní
now youíve added up to what youíre from

Wo-oo-ah oh ah oh ah oh
