  • See those trees
    Bend in the wind
    I feel they've got a lot more sense than me
    You see I try to resist

    A rubberband bouncing back to life
    A rubberband bend the beat
    If I could learn to give like a rubberband

    I'd be back on my feet
    A rubberband hold me trousers up
    A rubberband ponytails
    If I could learn to twang like a rubberband

    I'd be a rubberband girl
    A rubberband girl me
    A rubberband girl me
    Oh I want to be a rubberband girl

    When I slip out
    Of my catapult
    I gotta land with my feet on the ground
    And let my body catch up

    A rubberband bouncing back to life
    A rubberband bend the beat
    If I could learn to give like a rubberband

    I'd be back on my feet
    A rubberband hold me trousers up
    A rubberband ponytails
    If I could learn to twang like a rubberband

    I'd be a rubberband girl
    A rubberband girl me
    A rubberband girl me
    Oh I want to be a rubberband girl

    Give like a rubberband
    Twang like a rubberband
    Snap like a rubberband
    Rub-a-dub-a-dub-a-dub
    Rub-a-dub-a-dub
    Rub-a-dub
    One rubberband won't keep you up
    Two rubberbands won't keep you up
    Three rubberbands won't keep you up

    Here I go
    Yeah!

    One rubberband won't keep you up
    Two rubberbands won't keep you up
    Three rubberbands won't keep you up Writer/s: KATE BUSH
