SHOW ME A VIRGIN (IN A MATERNITY WARD)

Show me a virgin –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise,

That comes from the west.

And show me a river –

That never flows;

Show me a woman –

Who will never fall in love.

Show me a virgin –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise,

That comes from the west.

Show me a river –

That never flows;

Show me a woman,

Who will never fall in love.

You may find an answer –

In a question;

A whole lot of constringent

Situation,

A little bit of giving,

A little bit of taking,

You know, two wrongs –

Don’t make a right.

Show a virgin –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise,

That comes from the west.

And show me a river –

That never flows;

Show me a woman –

Who will never fall in love.

Show a virgin –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise,

That comes from the west.

Show me a river –

That never flows;

Show me a woman –

Who will never fall in love.

You may find an answer –

In a question.

A whole lot of constringent –

Situation,

A little bit of giving,

A little bit of taking,

You know two wrongs –

Don’t make a right.

Now, show a virgin (show me) –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise –

That comes from the west.

Show me a river (show me) –

That never flows;

Show me a woman –

Who will never fall in love.

Show a virgin (show me) –

In a maternity ward;

Show me sunrise –

That comes from the west.

And show a river (show me) –

That never flows;

Show me a woman –

Who will never fall in love…
