We rob and rape and kill and still don't understand We only rob ourselves and then we wonder why we suffer like we do soon we'll remember and understand THE CHILDREN OF THE NEW WORLD and THE DIFFERENT GAMES THEY PLAY cos we made love all the night time turned out to be the right time now there's children everywhere Tell me where you're really from What is this funny old world the human race has won Tell me why to die fills us with fear Its not the first its not the last time we'll be born Our turn will come again Pick up put down those clothes of human flesh we wear Slowly we're learning To understand THE CHILDREN OF THE NEW WORLD ARE THE CHILDREN OF TODAY Soon they'll begin Revolutionizing and reorganising As the old world fades away Lets start today

FRENCH GARDEN Good Morning ! daevid allen & euterpe In a French garden by the sea Sittin up there in an old oak tree Looking out over the straights of Dover Wonderin how I can Get back over to See you Sittin in your bed Be there In a little café by the Zeider Zee Sitting there dreaming of a cup of English Tea Lying there looking for a four leaf clover Waiting for an albatross to carry me over You gotta prove you're a millionaire They search you for thoughts and they measure your hair They say it's a question of all the clothes you wear Who knows you there The clothes you wear Well I was sitting in this French garden by the sea and I was sittin up high in this old oak tree and I was looking out over the straights of Dover Wonderin how I could Get back over to see you But there was this strange old fashioned Customs service stopping me See you Sittin in your bed Be there

WISE MAN IN YOUR HEART Good Morning ! daevid allen & euterpe daevid allen, mike howlett, pierre moerlen 1969 I met a man a wise old man The day I lost my pride He told me he belonged to me But from me he would hide But that I would not hear his voice Until I learned to sing Now every time I sing I know that I belong to him Singing Oh why Singing Oh why He told me he would teach me everything I tried to know He made me see that you and me are dreamers in a show and when the days were darkest then He lit them with his moon and then we crossed the rainbow bridge and we came back too soon Singing Oh why Singing Oh why He showed me where he was Atman That man I could not see He pointed to the sky until A ladder I could see I climbed for many lives to find the secret golden flower But then I woke and found I'd slept for less than half an hour Where is your wise man? How is the wise man? Who is this wise man? Who is this wise man? He brought us all together then When I was all alone He made me see that we could not Be only flesh and bone Well it makes you feel so beautiful You can tell yourself apart Every time you listen to The wise man in your heart

SHE DOESN'T SHE Good Morning ! daevid allen & euterpe she turns like a windmill she flips like a butterfly she turns like the water down deep in the morning she breaks like the glass of the waterfall milky way slowly I swim her my curds in her whey she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she does she smiles like a lizard and breeds like a legend she talks with her wizard and he tunes her engine she knows how to swim so she makes herself vanish till a true pothead pixie has learned to speak Spanish ah sweet mystery of life at last I've found you?? she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she doesn't she does
