Everything But The Girl Hang out the Flags Lyrics

Last updated:


Born on the stage,
undersize and underage
when she sang good,
momma said she could
sing the world away.

She made the shop girls cry.
They said, "That woman's life is
tragic and pathetic and just like mine."

Can you sleep without the light?
Hang out the flags tonight.

Here's judy garland who
did all your suffering for you.
Slept alone so you
could stay home and feel blue.

She cried, "Look at me, I'm sad and you're happy.
Yes, I'm great and you're second rate, but I wish that I could be you."

Sleeping without the light,
hanging out the flags tonight.

Don't tamper with the clock, my dear.
Romance has been dead for years.

Can you sleep without the light?
O, hang out the flags tonight.
Can you sleep without the light?
O, hang out the flags tonight.

What went wrong with my life?
What went wrong with my life?
