Village Green Lyrics

Out in the country,
Far from all the soot and noise of the city,
There?s a village green.
It?s been a long time
Since I last set eyes on the church with the steeple
Down by the village green.
?twas there I met a girl called daisy
And kissed her...

    This ballad from The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society tells the fictional story of the singer/narrator, who grew up in a small rural village. "I met a girl named Daisy, and kissed her by the old oak tree." Eventually, he leaves this village to pursue something--what, exactly, is not said. "I sought fate, and so I left the village green."

    The narrator comes back sometime years later. The village has changed, and is now a popular tourist destination: "American tourists flock to see the village green. They snap their photographs and say 'Gawl darn it,
    Isn't it a pretty scene?'"

    "I will return there, and I'll see Daisy, and we'll sip tea, laugh, and talk about the village green."
