"Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There's a frood who really knows where his towel is."

When the ground goes soft
and the night calms down
when they’re hungry or sick
when they’re ready to drown
don’t let them go
don’t make a sound
carry them home
carry them home

When the blood comes fast
and the nurse comes slow
when they can’t cry on
a shoulder they know
don’t you cry
don’t let them go
carry them home
carry them home

When few can walk
and most can’t crawl
when they’re tired and scared
if you see them at all
don’t you turn away
don’t just sit and bawl
carry them home
carry them home.
