作曲Jones, Jones, Cable
standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands
when i'm over hearing
elder ladies as the rumours start to fly
you can hear them in the school yard
in the scrap yard
in the chip shop
phone box
in the pool hall
at the shoe stall
every corner turned around

it started with the school girl
who was running running home to her mam and dad
told them
she was playing in the change room of the local football side
they said tell us again
so she told them again
they said tell us the truth
they found it hard to believe
cause he taught our steve
he even trained me
taught uncle john who's a father of three

but it only takes one tree to make

a thousand matches
only takes one match to burn

a thousand trees

you see it in the class room
in the swimming pool
where the match stick men are made
at the scouts hall
at the football
where the wise we trust are paid
they all honour his name
he did a lot for the game
he got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
but now they are ripping it down stamping the ground
picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge

it takes one tree to make

a thousand matches
only takes one match to burn

a thousand trees

wake up and smell the rain
shake up
he's back to stay
he hasn't been on a holiday
his growing seeds don't believe why he's been away
in the school yard
change room
playing fields
bathroom
phone box
office blocks
corner turned around
they keep doubting the flame tossing the blame
got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates
but now they're ripping them down stamping the ground
picture gathers dust in the bar in the lounge

it takes one tree to make

a thousand matches
it only takes one match to burn

a thousand trees
