"Reel Around the Fountain" A Question about a lyrics of The Smiths
It's time the tale were told
Of how you took a child
And you made him old
I can't understand the reason why past sentence should be used. "the tale is told" doesn't make sense? Or sounds odd?
I can't see what role does this "Of" playing. What Difference there should be if without this "of"?
I want to know grammatically.
