Fairly girls were very much in love
But he doesn't mind
Pickin' up his sister
Makes his way to the see-saw land
All the way she smiled
She goes up while he goes down

Sits on a snake in the river
Laughter in his sleeves
Sister's throwing stones
Hoping for a hit
He doesn't know, so there
She goes up while he goes down

Another time, another day
Her brother's plain to me
Another time, another day day day
She was selling plastic flowers
On a sunday afternoon
Pickin' up me, she has not got the time to care
All can see, he's not there
She grows up for another man and he's down
