Time To Ring Some Changes Richard Thompson
Time to Ring some Changes, by Richard Thompson ------------------------- This old house is tumbling down The walls are gone, but the roof is sound The landlord's dead, he can never be found It's time to ring some changes You earn the money for your daily bread But the bread's gone up, so you need more money The money's gone down, better borrow instead It's time to ring some changes Time to ring some changes (x4) The politicians, they look so smug You say tell the truth, and they give you a shrug You might find the truth swept under a rug It's time to ring some changes So you fall in love with a girl you've seen Diamond-studded on a TV screen All the change in your pocket won't buy you a dream It's time to ring some changes So you steal a car, and you go for a ride End up sleeping with some Girl Guide But everything you do leaves you empty inside It's time to ring some changes Chorus x2 It's not on any of R.T.'s studio albums.. but I was told once that he performed it on _Small Town Romance_, a live acoustic album. There's an excellent version by the Albion Band (in that avatar, John Tams, Ashley Hutchings, Simon Nicol, Ric Sanders, and some others) on their _Rise Up Like The Sun_ which is a great album all round, and a decent one by Spirit of the West on _Early Material_.
