Coldplay – Orphans


Intro: Chris Martin & Choir, Moses Martin
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
Boom boom kah, buba de kah
Boom boom kah, buba de kah
Boom boom kah, buba de kah

Verse 1: Chris Martin
Rosaleem of the Damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon

Refrain: Chris Martin & Choir
She went (Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh)
Indigo up in heaven today
(Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh)
Bombs going boom-ba-ba-boom
She say

Chorus: Chris Martin & Choir
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again

Verse 2: Chris Martin
Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune

Refrain: Chris Martin & Choir
But he went (Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh)
Tulips the colour of honey today
(It’s true, true, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh)
Bombs going boom-ba-ba-boom
He say

Chorus: Chris Martin & Choir
Oh, I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (Yeah)

Bridge: Chris Martin
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh
Cherubim, Seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon

Chorus: Chris Martin & Choir
Oh, I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again

Refrain: Chris Martin & Choir
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh
I guess we’ll be raised on our own then
Woo-woo, woo-woo, ooh-ooh-ooh
‘Cause I want to be with you ’til the world ends
I want to be with you ’til the whole world ends

Outro: Moses Martin
Boom boom kah, buba de kah
Boom boom kah, buba de kah
Boom boom kah, buba de kah
Boom
