(1968) A Soucerful Of Secrets

6. 10. 2006

Let there be more light

Far far far away way

people heard him say say

I will find a way way

there will come a day day

something will be done

Then at last the mighty ship

descending at a point of flame

made contact with the human race at no time

Now now now is the time time

time to be be be aware

Not as far the solar bear

in human role revealed to him

a living soul of heavenward forever

Sunlight, something in my eye

something in the sky

waiting there for me

The antelope grows hurling back

the servicemen would like to sigh

the memory wentflowing rounds

as Lucy in the sky

Oh oh did you ever know

no never ever will they ascend

Summoning in his cosmic powers

and flowing slightly from his toes

psychedelic nations fly

 

 

 

 

Remember a day

Remember a day before today

a day when you were young

renew a play along with time

evening with a thyme

Sing now a song that can't be sung

without a morning's kiss

dream you shall be it if you wish

look for your king

Why can't we play today

why can't we stay that way

Climb your favorite apple tree

try to catch the sun

hide from your little brother's gun

dream yourself away

Why can't we reach the sun

why can't we blow the years away

go away

remember remember

 

 

 

 

Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun

Little by little the night turns around

Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn

Lotus's lean on each other in yearning

Over the hills a swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Over the mountain watching the watcher

Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine

Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow

Love is the shadow that ripens the wine

Set the controls for the heart of the sun

The heart of the sun

The heart of the sun

Witness the man who waves at the wall

Making the shape of his questions to heaven

Whether the sun will fall in the evening

Will he remember the lesson of giving?

Set the controls for the heart of the sun

The heart of the sun

The heart of the sun

 

 

 

 

Corporal Clegg

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg

he won it in the war in nineteen forty four

Corporal Clegg had a medal too

in orange and blue, he found it in the zoo

Dear oh dear, oh are they really sad for me

dear oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me

Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him

Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin

Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream

from Her Majesty the Queen, his boots were very clean

Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain

he's never been the same but no one is to blame

 

 

 

 

See saw

Fairy girls were very much in love

but he doesn't mind

pickin' up his sister

makes his way to the see-saw land

all the way she smiled

she goes up while he goes down

Sits on a snake in the river

laughter in his sleeves

sister's throwing stones

hoping for a hit

he doesn't know, so there

she goes up while he goes down

Another time, another day

her brother's plain to me

another time, another day day day

She was selling plastic flowers

on a Sunday afternoon

pickin' up me, she has not got the time to gare

all can see, he's not there

she grows up for another man and he's down

 

 

 

 

Jugband blues

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me there

and I'm most obliged to you for making it clear

that I'm not there

and I never knew the room could be so big

and I never knew the room could be so blue

and I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes

and brought me here instead dressed in red

And I'm wandering who could be writing this song

I don't care if the sun don't shine

I don't care if nothing is mine

and I don't care I'm nervous with you

I'll do my loving in the winter

And the sea isn't green

and I love the queen

and what exactly is a dream

and what exactly is a joke
