where magnets cannot save them

Red snails in the sunset
sprayed out on the path
oh, carry my loved one
home safely to me

He snailed at the dawning
All day I've been blue
Red snails in the sunset
I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
and he goes snailing no more

Bloody typical!
