  • Killed a wild swan
    It was a kind of omen
    Of everything to come
    I can't believe it's happening
    And that it's happening now
    I can't believe it's happening
    It's coming true somehow

    [Chorus:]
    On Canvey Island, 1953
    Many lives were lost
    With the records of a football team
    I can't believe it's happening
    And that it's happening now
    I can't believe it's happening
    It's coming true somehow

    Don't you think it's strange, you know
    The way it all works out
    Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts, so

    Sometimes it's hard to tell
    If it's going well
    You know the odds against it
    Were so phenomenal
    I can't believe it's happening
    And that it's happening now
    I can't believe it's happening
    It's coming true somehow

    [Chorus]

    Don't you think it's strange, you know
    The way it all works out
    Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts

    Don't you think it's strange, you know
    The way it all works out
    You start with everything then end without

    Oh!
    Oh, oh!
    Oh

    Oh it's happening now
    Oh it's happening now
