Pylon to you


Looking at that power line

There’s more than one

Great thick cables reduced to a thread

From where I stand I could be in bed

Sky high those cables pylon to pylon

Big insulators glistening in the sun

Power to the people

Power to you and me

Power across the hills, valleys and the trees

Down the alley, to my house

That other day when the power went out

I was walking along in the darkness,

Collided with a woman, she thought I was a lager lout

Just because the power went out

Left us in the darkness

Made her shout
