Green Grow the Rushes

R.E.M.  Buy  License   

The wheelbarrow's fallen
Look at my hands
They've found some surplus cheaper hands Rubbing palms and pick and choose
Who will they choose? Here is the news.

Look at that building look at this man Haloed and whitewashed
Gone to find a cheaper hand
He'll offer a pound offer a pound.
Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go
The compass points the workers home

Pay for your freedom, find another gate Guilt by associate, the rushes wilted a long time ago Guilty as you go

Stay off that highway, word is it's not so safe
The grasses that hide the greenback
The amber waves of gain again
The amber waves of gain
Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go Green grow the rushes go
The compass points the workers home
