lyrics

Uncle E

Cycling with uncle E
Climbing up steep bridges
He says you gotta hold your body still
Don´t sway like that
Don´t you waste no energy boy

He taught me
That you gotta put the energy
Where it should be

Uncle E eating supper
On a Sunday
Sounding like it tasted very good
My father making faces
My mother didn´t mind
Uncle E quoting poetry

I´ve held no tits
That didn´t suspend in the end
Gravity´s gonna find us all

In the end Uncle E
Couldn´t follow me
Up the steep bridges anymore
Got off his bike
Pretending to see something interesting
Shouting: you go ahead boy!
You go ahead!

And as much as I
Try to remember the
Good old days of uncle E
It´s always this image that remains
He standing there panting
A face flushed with strain
Calling me to go ahead
With the desperate sound
Of somebody that sinks beneath you

And that will you will
Never see again
