Lyrics

Holding the Baby
Holding the baby
You've been cut off by your old fun
Holding the baby
Holding the baby
You've been eclipsed by your own son

All over the British Isles
You put your seeds in window boxes
All over the kitchen tiles
You played the hounds to those foxes

Now who will suffer
Now you've been unmasked
Probably the little kid
He was never asked

All over his brand new face
You can see he shouldn't be here
All over at her mum's place
The cozy caress of lust and beer

Now who has to suffer
Now you've been unmasked
Probably the little kid
He was never asked

Chords and Tablature
