A Nice Pair Lyrics


A Nice Pair

Astronomy Domine

Lime and limpid green,
a second scene,
A fight between the blue
you once knew.
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn Oberon Miranda
And Titan Neptune Titan
Stars can frighten…

Blinding signs flap flicker flicker flicker
Blam Pow Pow
Stairway scare Dan Dare who’s there…

Lime and limpid green
The sound surrounds the icy waters under
Lime and limpid green
The sound surrounds the icy waters
Underground

Lucifer Sam

Lucifer Sam, siam cat.
Always sitting by your side
Always by your side.
That cat’s something I can’t explain.

Ginger, ginger you’re a witch.
You’re the left side
He’s the right side.
Oh, no! 
That cat’s something I can’t explain.

Lucifer go to sea.
Be a hip cat, be a ship’s cat.
Somewhere, anywhere.
That cat’s something I can’t explain. 

At night prowling sifting sand.
Hiding around on the ground.
He’ll be found when you’re around.
That cat’s something I can’t explain.

Matilda Mother

There was a king who ruled the land.
His majesty was in command.
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle
Showers silver on the people.
Oh Mother, tell me More.

Why’d’ya have to leave me there
Hanging in my infant air 
Waiting?
You only have to read the lines
They’re scribbly black and everything shines. 

Across the stream with wooden shoes
With bells to tell the king the news
A thousand misty riders climb up 
Higher once upon a Time.

Wandering and dreaming
The words have different meaning. 
Yes they did.

For all the Time spent in that room
The doll’s house, darkness, old perfume
And fairy sories held me high on 
Clouds of sunlight floating by.
Oh Mother, tell me More
Tell me More.
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah

Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk

Doctor doctor!
I’m in bed
Achin’ head
Gold is lead
Choke on bread
Underfed
Gold is lead
Jesus bled
Pain is red
Are goon
Grow go
Greasy spoon
You swoon
June bloom

Music seems to help the pain
Seems to cultivate the brain. 
Doctor kindly tell your wife that
I’m alive – flowers thrive – realize – realize
Realize.

The Gnome

I want to tell you a story
About a little man
If I can.
A gnome named Grimble Crumble.
And little gnomes stay in their homes.
Eating, sleeping, drinking their wine.

He wore a scarlet tunic,
A blue green hood,
It looked quite good.
He had a big adventure
Amidst the grass
Fresh air at last.
Wining, dining, biding his time.
And then one day – hooray!
Another way for gnomes to say
Oooooooooomray.

Look at the sky, look at the river
Isn’t it good?
Look at the sky, look at the river
Isn’t it good?
Winding, finding places to go.
And then one day – hooray!
Another way for gnomes to say
Oooooooooomray.
Ooooooooooooooomray

Chapter 24

A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return.
The seven is the number of the young light 
It forms when darkness is increased by one.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset.

The Time is with the month of winter solstice
When the change is due to come.
Thunder in the other course of heaven.
Things cannot be destroyed once and for all.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset, sunrise.

A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return.
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one.
Change returns success
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune.
Sunset, sunrise.

Scarecrow

The black and green Scarecrow as everyone knows
Stood with a bird on his hat and straw everywhere. 
He didn’t care.
He stood in a field where barley grows.

His head did no thinking
His arms didn’t move except when the wind cut up
About his head and mice spun around on the ground
He stood in a field where barley grows.

The black and green Scarecrow is sadder than me
But now he’s resigned to his fate
‘Cause life’s not unkind – he doesn’t mind. 
He stood in a field where barley grows.

Bike

I’ve got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.
I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.
I’ll give you anything, ev’rything if you want things.

I’ve got a cloak. It’s a bit of a joke.
There’s a tear up the front. It’s red and black.
I’ve had it for months.
If you think it could look good, then I guess it should.

You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.
I’ll give you anything, ev’rything if you want things.

I know a mouse, and he hasn’t got a house.
I don’t know why. I call him Gerald.
He’s getting rather old, but he’s a good mouse.

You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.
I’ll give you anything, ev’rything if you want things.

I’ve got a clan of gingerbread men.
Here a man, there a man, lots of gingerbread men.
Take a couple if you wish. They’re on the dish.

You’re the kind of girl that fits in with my world.
I’ll give you anything, ev’rything if you want things.

I know a room full of musical tunes.
Some rhyme, some ching. Most of them are clockwork.
Let’s go into the other room and make them work.

Let There Be More Light

Far, 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 on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race 
at Mildenhall

Now, now, now is the time, time, time
To be, be, be aware

Carter’s father saw it there
And knew the Rhull revealed to him
The living soul of Hereward the Wake

Oh my, something in my eye, eye
Something in the sky, sky
Waiting there for me

The outer lock rolled slowly back
The servicemen were heard to sigh
For there revealed in glowing robes 
was Lucy in the sky

Oh, oh, did you ever
No, no, never ever will they
I’ll say

Summoning his cosmic power
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed

Remember A Day

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes

Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen you shall be if you wish
Look for your king

Why can’t we play today
Why can’t we stay that way

Climb your favourite 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
Blow away
Blow 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 urning.
Over the hill the swallow is resting.
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Over the mountain watching the watcher.
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine.
Morning to birth is born into 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.

Who is the man who arrives at the wall?
Making the shape of his questions at asking.
Thinking 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, red 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?

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin

Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He’s never been the same
No one is to blame

Corporal Clegg recieved his medal in a dream
From her Majesty, the Queen
His boots were very clean

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?

Corporal Clegg
Corporal Clegg
[…]
All right men — in you go!

A Saucerful Of Secrets (Song)

Instrumental

See-Saw

Marigolds are very much in love, but he doesn’t mind
Picking up his sister, he makes his way into the seas or land
All the way she smiles
She goes up while he goes down, down
Sits on a stick in the river
Laughter in his sleep
Sister’s throwing stones, hoping for a hit
He doesn’t know so then
She goes up while he goes down, down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day

She’ll be selling plastic flowers on a Sunday afternoon

Picking up weeds, she hasn’t got the time to care
All can see he’s not there
She grows up for another man, and he’s down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave 

Jugband Blues

It’s awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I’m most obliged to you for making it clear
That I’m not here

And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon 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 wondering who could be writing this song

I don’t care if the sun don’t shine
And I don’t care if nothing is mine
And I don’t care if 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?
