Well I went for a walk as the last rays of sun
Fell asleep on the fields of the place where I run
And I saw you

You stood over a man who was all tied up
As he begged for forgiveness could he drink from your cup
'Cos he loved you

I crept slowly through the trees
I saw him get down on his knees for you
And you screamed in delight
Is it true
Is this just village life

Well he came to a head like an old spent cask
And you undid his knots and you took off your mask
Then you saw me

Well I last seen your face in The Three Blackbirds
When you served me my pint but you didn't say a word
Though we both knew

I see that twinkle in your eye
Well maybe I shouldn't be surprised by you
And the things you did that night
Is it true
And I just don't know what its like
Well you
You screamed in delight
Is it true
Is this just village life
