Ducks on the Wall

Ray Davies, released on Soap Opera, © Davray Music Ltd. 1975

.

My baby's got the most deplorable taste,

But her biggest mistake

Is hanging over the fireplace.

She's got ducks, ducks on the wall,

Ducks, ducks, hanging on the wall.

.

My lady's got a sort of strange fascination,

An obsessive fixation

For cheap decorations

She's got ducks, ducks on the wall.

Ducks, ducks, hanging on the wall.

.

Wo-wo-wo I love her so but if she doesn't move the ducks,

I think my mind is gonna go.

Ducks ducks on the wall.

Ducks ducks, hanging on the wall.

.

I leave the office and I want to relax.

Don't want to stare at a wall

And look at a duck that can't quack.

I love you baby but I can't fall

For those ducks on the wall.

.

I start to snuggle up and squeeze her so tight.

Then out of the corner of my eye

I see those ducks in flight.

I love you baby but I can't ball

When I see those ducks on the wall.

.

Wo-wo-wo I can sit through your gossip and your soap opera shows,

But those ducks have got to go.

I love you baby but I can't ball

When I see those ducks on the wall.

And when I went to a cocktail party

With the bores next door,

What was the first thing that I saw?

Ducks, ducks on the wall.

Ducks, ducks hanging on the wall.

.

My baby's got the most deplorable taste,

But her biggest mistake

Is hanging over the fireplace.

She's got ducks, ducks on the wall,

Ducks, ducks hanging on the wall.

.

I'll sit and look at all the soap operas with her

I'll play all the panel games and watch all the quiz shows,

But those ducks they've got to go,

Those ducks are getting up my nose.

.

If those ducks can fly, well so can I.

And if those ducks have got to stay

Then I'm going to fly away.

I love you baby but I can't ball

When I see those ducks on the wall.

.

Ducks, ducks, ducks on the wall.

Ducks, ducks, ducks on the wall.

Oh those ducks on the wall are beginning to move

They're talking to me

I've got to get away from those ducks.
