The Colonial Wing Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

Here is the store house of Her Majesty 

Well guarded by sentry but looks are free 


Call this the ray-less and benighted age 

Witches by tallow candles shifted 

Shifted their shapes 


Here is the pestle and mortar 

That ground the poison seed 

A lute, a suit for jousting 

And the poems of a balladeer 


When all the Latin books 

Were copied off in golden script 

Well hoarded away in 

A monastery crypt 



Superstition beyond belief 


Over mountain, over dune and over sea 

Crude map and compass lead the caravan 

And lead the fleet 


Here's the loot and plunder 

They bore home 

Ivory tusk inlaid with precious stone 


Raw silk and spices by the barrel load 

A soft skin drum with mallets 

Of human bone 


A world wide rampage 

Rampage of greed 


So here the tour concludes 

The Colonial Wing 

The rooms of the most refined 

Museum property 


An early pair of spectacles 

A claw footed divan 

Ornate clocks with birds that strut 

On the half hours and quarter hours 


Hear them chime
