lyrics

Pass me the needle and thread my friend
I could do with mending old clothes
Strengthen with patches and stitches of twine
It's been long since I tended to the tears left behind

I've never been one for a thimble
A pricked finger tells me I'm alive
As the blood trickles slowly down my thumb
It's these old clothes I'm going to revive my son

But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear
Though you were never as torn as I
Right down the seams and threadbare till naked
Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes
Maybe I'm of softer cloth

Pass me the needle and thread my love
I'll make good or if not I'll make new
This tatty old fabric is potent indeed
And I'll fashion a dress just for you out of need

But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear
Though you were never as torn as I
Right down the seams and threadbare till naked
Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes
Maybe I'm of softer cloth

If only they made me of stronger cloth
I could put my needle away
