IT'S THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE

It's the time of 
your life you know
When we gotta choose 
between yes and no

Yes, you make it
No, it gets worse
Wind up riding 
in an old black hearse

Fuzz Buzz Gang Bang
Black metal shirt
Rich man he's so 
afraid to get hurt
Clean shave t-shirt 
straight up and down
Waitin' till the worm 
turns six foot down

Won't you help me 
sing this song 
Soon we will be gone 

It's the time of 
your life you know
When we gotta choose 
between yes and no
Chairman Mao Sacred Cow
I'm gonna tell you how
Tell me how
Cats walkin' in the world you find
It feels much better 
when you're out of your mind
But the old wooden 
church on the hill
The statue of Jesus 
well it sits there still
That's all

Won't you help me sing this song 
Soon we will be gone 

I have to now coz 
I have to climb a mountain
(What do you really want?)
I have to now coz 
I have to climb a mountain

	

MEMORIES

I know that I 
cannot leave this place 
full of memories
Things like the way they
knew us all over town

We used to walk the streets
together - We could be seen
Bus stops where people
knew us, yeah, people knew

I've got to choose between
tomorrow and yesterday
I can't stop to think about
my life here today

Maybe I'll find someone
to get you off my mind
Take me away from here
and leave it all behind

	

ALL I WANT IS OUT OF HERE

I don't need money 
and I don't wanna suck
I don't speak Russian, 
and I don't need luck
Don't need pleasure 
and I don't dig shows
Not gonna speak again now 
till tomorrow

Ain't got nothing to buy, 
got nothing to sell
Not looking for Heaven, 
and I been to Hell
Crime and punishment 
don't touch me
I gotta judge 
that don't live in the city

All I want is out of here

I don't want power, 
and I don't need fame
It just don't matter 
if you know my name
I'll take anything, 
I just don't care
You don't know me?

Christ you see me everywhere

	

FRED THE FISH

BBC Radio announcer:
'And now's the moment 
 at five to three a.m. 
 for which you've chosen 
 to deprive yourselves of sleep'

Hello! Banana

O hand me me Bowler 
and me Didgery Doo
one banana sandwich 
and a bucket of tea
abra cabra dabra 
I'm a coolibar tree
takes a bowl 'a soup 
to paint a picture like me
no doubt about it

some dogs breakfast 
of a bloke I be
smokin' all the tea leaves 
on me family tree
I'm a friend of tweedle dum 
and tweedly dee
Lotsa lovely badges 
on me old school knee-cap

O hand me a dalhia 
we're gonin' to Australia
Me life's been a failure
She's turned me down

Soon I'll be waltzin' 
on the old gold sands
Everything's too loverly 
to understand
Pass me the parsley 
and me 99th chip
ain't nothin' nasty 
gonna pass my lips
How you going son?


[from daevid's hand-written lyrics]

'John Coltrane Kazoo solo, followed 
 by general repeating of above words 
 and winds up with...'

O gimmie sweet potato!

	

STONED INNOCENT FRANKENSTEIN
and His Adventures 
in the Land of Flip

People people love me do
I love me because I'm you but
Why do people always call me
Stoned Innocent Frankenstein

Freaks and monsters live with me 
but I don't want to set them free
'Cos I love you because you call me
Stoned Innocent Frankenstein

But you know that I know 
that you know that we know
the rainbow the sun shows
the mind blows the world goes

People people help me please
You're so cool I'm 'bout to freeze
but all you say is green cheese please 
you're Stoned Innocent Frankenstein

But you know that I know that
you know that we know
the sun shows the mind blows
the wind blows the world goes

Dream train, Ooo Ooo! 
Steam train, Ooo Ooo!
Dream train, Ooo Ooo!
Steam train, Ooo Ooo!

You said you'd give me 
thirty percent of all you made


How now? How now? 
How now? How now?
Well I sure ain't humble 
I'm a heavy time fool
and the earth's gonna tremble, 
ain't gonna be cool
they tell me it's only the season
ain't no reason

	

I'M A BOWL 
- daevid allen

I'm a bowl fol de rol
I'm a doll lol de sole
roll de gaule de fol de gaule
I'm bold as a moulded troll
I've 3 noses
I've 3 beers
I've 9 neckties
I've some clothing
I've naught hunger
I've no clothes
But when I try
I scoff multifarious breakfasts 
with a sneer
That was a difficult one wasn't it
I'm a bowl colder than cold
I'm a bowl father than scroll
But rather than stay 
I'll rather than go
Said he departing I'm a bowl


now repeat this many times
maybe it's 'I'm an owl?'
I dunno
schlpp! wble wble WBLE URP! NICE
schaHALARP!
THE END.
