Jesus Is A Rochdale Girl

Album: Build a Rocket Boys! (2011)
  • I have a drop-leaf window
    With cats and broken yards
    Sunflowers and paint cans
    And stolen shopping carts
    And nothing to be proud of
    And nothing to regret
    All of that to make as yet
    All of that to make as yet

    I have a single heartbreak
    I celebrate and mourn
    A single shining sister
    And all the tricks of dawn
    A single yellow duvet
    A single switch to flick
    But a thousand boxes yet to take
    A thousand boxes yet to take

    And Jesus is a Rochdale girl,
    And 45 CDs
    Got a house that you can smoke in
    So all my friends found me
    And they found me full of myself
    And bloody-minded will
    And as yet a box to fill
    And as yet a box to fill Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK POTTER, MARK ELLIS POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
