You never wonder what this dream is all about,
d'you ever raised an issue?
You love to rant when toady music's right too loud,
it never bothers you.

No... did she strip for real, did I go wrong?
Then with a shot she shook her breech? Wo wo wo wo!

Oh dear, indeed it's coming hard... to say.
Never upon some praise: never upon some praise.
How could I know to what kind of god I should pray?
Get it along, Her Grace: probably it's not the case.

Rays are singing past for real the slowing clock.
My goodness, it's a splitting trick for real, the slowing clock.
Your voice goes deeply out of sound, and time goes leaping round and round.

Heal and serve, cheerly get high now, don't be inane.
It's number one the way you move!
Back to those mosquitos like new roses on the wall
and don't know why, just slowing clocks...

Ain't no rebel fit to fear the slowing clock.
There are assassins, puritans,
red giants and you: it's honourable.
No one around has led a narrow, wide or round way.
You never wonder what this dream is all about.
