Gloria (Traditional Music/Matthews/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the John Peel version. Other versions: Mark Radcliffe.


you're so merry up on high
oh so scarily on high
gloria never ever cries
cos she's just too busy
gloria never shuts her eyes
cos it makes her dizzy

and now you've got it all
what do you want it for
are you sick or
do you just want more
you're a strange girl, gloria

you say you've got it all
what do you want it for
all that noise you've got
oh, oh, oh, gloria

oh so merry up on high

now you've got it all
what do you want it for
all that noise you've got
well you're just a whore
oh, oh, gloria

cos you've got it all
what do you want it for
you're a strange girl
all that noise you've got
oh, oh, gloria

hosanna in excelsis
