Verdi Cries Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

The man in 119 takes his tea all alone 

Mornings we all rise to wireless Verdi cries 

I'm hearing opera through the door 

The souls of men and women, impassioned all 

Their voices climb and fall, battle trumpets call 

I fill the bath and climb inside, singing 

 

He will not touch their pastry 

But every day they bring him more 

Gold from the breakfast tray, I steal them all away 

And then go, eat them on the shore 

 

I draw a jackal-headed woman in the sand 

Sing of a lover's fate sealed by jealous hate 

And wash my hand in the sea with just three days more 

I'd have just about learned the entire score to Aida 

 

Holidays must end as you know 

All is memory taken home with me 

The opera, the stolen tea, the sand drawing 

The verging sea all years ago
