And I'm ___________ now (10)
And I'm ___________ we're through
And the ________ is green (5)
And the grass is blue.

And the _______ flow backwards (11)
And my ________ are dry (12)
Swams hate the _________ (13)
And eagles can't _________ (14)
But I'm allright now
Now that I'm over you
And the _________ is green (5)
And the grass is blue
And I don't love you
And the grass is blue.
