Moving the Goalposts - Billy Bragg

    I put on my raincoat to make it rain
    And sure enough the skies opened up again
    I dreamed of you as I walked to the shops
    You were dancing with the wallies on Top Of The Pops

    Once in a while
    Gennady Gerasimov drops his smile
    And you can see that his aim's
    A portfolio pregnant with gains

    He's been up all night
    Moving the goalposts

    Like a jackdaw with a fiery brand
    Spread the news all over this land
    Robin Hood and his Merry Men
    Are never, never, never coming back again

    I don't believe that love should be pain
    So could you please rub my back again
    I think it's safe to leave them in the park
    Let's blow out the candles and kiss in the dark

    Heavens above
    Can this sticky stuff really be love?
    Don't get dressed yet
    Not yet

    We've been up all night
    Moving the goalposts
