Album version:

   See the flowers round the altar
   See the peaches in tins 'neath the headmaster's chair
   Harvest festival

   See the two who've been chosen
   See them walk hand in hand to the front of the hall

   Harvest festival
   Harvest festival
   What was best of all was the
   Longing look you gave me
   That longing look
   More than enough to keep me fed all year

   See the children with baskets
   See their hair cut like corn neatly combed in their rows

   Harvest festival
   Harvest festival
   What was best of all was the
   Longing look you gave me
   That longing look
   Across the hymnbooks and the canvas chairs
   The longing look you gave me
   That longing look
   More than enough to keep me fed all year

   And what a year when the exams and crops all failed
   Of course you passed and you were never seen again
   We all grew and we got screwed and cut and nailed
   Then out of nowhere invitation in gold pen

   See the flowers round the altar
   See that you two got married and I wish you well

   Harvest festival
   Harvest festival
   What was best of all was the
   Longing look you gave me
   That longing look
   Across the hymnbooks and the canvas chairs
   The longing look you gave me
   That longing look
   More than enough to keep me fed all year

   Harvest festival
