Nina Simone sang...

... fresh in my ear this morning as I scuttled up to Seven Sisters station and then to Tesco, and then West Green and so on...



... Well I run to the rock

Please hide me I run to the rock

Please hide me I run to the rock

Please hide me lord

All on that day



Well the rock cried out

I can’t hide you the rock cried out

I can’t hide you the rock cried out

I ain’t gunna hide you god

All on that day



I said rock what’s a matter with you rock

Don’t you see I need you rock

Don’t let me down

All on that day



So I run to the river

It was bleedin I run to the sea

It was bleedin I run to the sea

It was bleedin all on that day

So I run to the river it was boilin

I run to the sea it was boilin

I run to the sea it was boilin

All on that day



So I run to the lord

Please help me lord

Don’t you see me prayin

Don’t you see me down here prayin



But the lord said

Go to the devil

The lord said

Go to the devil

He said go to the devil

All on that day



So I ran to the devil

He was waiting

I ran to the devil he was waiting

I ran to the devil he was waiting

All on that day
