born_on_the_5th_of_november

There was November in your eyes
There'd be no pennies for the guys
There were fireworks over London
But you weren't among them anymore

When it got darker the nightmares came
I lit a sparkler to write your name
There were fireworks over London
You weren't among them anymore

Because you're too beautiful
Gunpowder is louder that's all

You should never play with fireworks
You might get your fingers burned
The blue touch paper brings a touch of violence
But you'll never learn

Because you're too beautiful
Gunpowder is louder that's all

Beautiful
That's what the fireworks are for
Yes, you're beautiful
You're so beautiful
Too beautiful for such an ugly world

Interestingly Jamie Wednesday, Les and Jim's pre-Carter incarnation also recorded a version of this song. The only real differences being the speed of the recording, Jim's accent being less accentuated on the original and all instrumentation on the original was live. Not sure what this song was originally called.
