So What? | Gold Top | I Can't Get Started | Slow Boat | It Ain't Necessarily So | My Funny Valentine

SO WHAT? 
lyrics by daevid allen

maybe now y got a job
maybe now y got a family
maybe now y gotcha card
a master card

maybe now yr online
maybe now yr on cable
now ya talkin on the phone
yr on yr mobile

are you able to be free?
do y'know whats on yr menu?
do y'understand a tree?
or future creatures?

do ya think ya really know?
so ya think ya got the answer?
dont ya think yoo oughta know
yr just the dancer!

tell me all about yr life
now ya made yourself some money
so ya got y'self a wife
a wife for life

maybe now yr on call
gotcha cards out on the table
now yr stakin' out the deal
how are you feelin?

you dont think much about the land
you dont worry bout the culture
when the forrest turns to sand
become the vulture

so ya think ya really know
so ya think ya got the question
don't y'think you oughta know
if its really your investment?

all the money that ya make
while yr poisoning the waters
all the medicine we take
well y'know you really bought it

so y'think yr pretty cool 
thats the way its gotta be now 
just a product you can sell 
but not to me now


GOLD TOP 
lionel hampton and ken kynard, 
adapted by daevid allen, 
inspired by king pleasure's 
'my little red top'


my little gold top
boy how you got me spinning
goin round n round
just like i never stop
wot goes around 
will be coming around
i'm sure gonna trip 
gonna flip gonna flop
so gold top
you just go right on spinning
goin round n round
n don't you ever stop
remember that if you dont go around
were sure gonna drop 
gonna drop gonna drop
o my sweet little spacey blue gown
i'm sittin up on my mushroom 
like an ol catapillar
a toke on my waterpipe 
maybe then you can believe me
nobody can hubble 
'n' bubble like you babe
so i'm outa this world 
and in love with you

please beam me up with you
i wanna ride with you in a ufo too
so darlin wont you tell me yr mine
and fly me high up in the night
and love me
now that i'm spinning 
now that i'm skinning up
so dont you dare stop
i'm way out of orbit 
and i dont wanna drop

i musn't take a solo
but i cant stop
i gotta go right on 
trippin its a trap
but i'm a little gold top
i gotta go right on spinning
deep in my rushroom mush 
until i tumble down
and fall with that drop
morning glory
now y know the story 
of my little friend

ma little gold top
see how y got me spinning
goin round n round
and i dont wanna stop
you got me so if i dont go around
i'm sure gonna drop gonna drop gonna
drop
my gold top
i just go right on spinning
goin round n round
just like i never stop
remember that if you dont go around
y just cool down baby 
cos we sure gonna drop


I CAN'T GET STARTED 
ira gershwin; updated from 
bobby troupe's adaptation, 
capitol australia clp040 (mx60400) 
10' non-breakable long-playing 
microgroove 1956

i've bin round 'n' round the world 
in a jet
i've hung out with richard gere 
in tibet (believe me)
tadjikistan i've chartered
but still i can't get started 
with you

on the golf course 
i'm way under par
i roam the streets in my brand new 
xk jaguar
still i'm broken hearted
cos i cant get started 
with you

you're so serene
sweet words i sing to you
dreamin' dreams 
that begin with you
schemin' schemes 
that will bring you to me
but what good would that do?

mike tyson taught me 
his favourite munch
i've had brigette fonda
to lunch
even so i'm broken hearted
cos i can't get started 
with you

when we first met
how you excited me
yet you hardly noticed me
shyet baby, my self esteem 
is so flat
so tell me what 
should i do?

in the 1980's 
i had millions to burn
but just lately 
i just drop ecstasy 
and yearn for you babe

i got a house 
a showplace
still i just get no place
with you
i just can't get started
with you


SLOW BOAT 
daevid allen, inspired by 
charlie parker's original  
live from the royal roost 
nyc feb 26 1949


i'd love to git choo
in a jeep to machipichu
all to myself alone
charm and bewitch you
on a high mountain trail
gently unstitch you
with some jungle juggler's tales

i'd love to seduce ya
on a cruise to andalucia
or in a yurt afghanistani in nepal
raise yr kundalini
in the hotel blue dakini
one love for two
free love for all
i'd love to tickle ya
everywhere in particular
laughin all the way back home

zap you
entrap you
tickle yr tips 'n' stroke you
touch you 'n' tease you
feel you 'n' please yoo
light you up and stoke ya
stir you up and stroke yo
lick yr tips and squeeeeze yoo
love you deep &
lose myself
in you


IT AIN'T NECESSARILY SO 
- ira gershwin; adapted by 
daevid allen, for ynys

it ain't necessarily so
it ain't necessarily so
the things that yr liable
to read in the bible
well it ain't necessarily so

they say jonah 
he lived in a whale
they say jonah 
he lived in a whale
made his home 
in that fish's abdomen
hey wot a strange thing jonah 
he lived in that whale

moses was found in a stream
lil moses he was found in a stream
he floated on water 
till the pharoe's daughter
she fished him right 
out of that stream

it ain't necessarily so
it ain't necessarily so
they tell all them children
that the devil he's a villain
but it ain't necessarily so

david was small but O my
lil david he was small but O my
he stoned big goliath
who lay down there and die-eth
lil david he was small but Ohh my

So this is my bible story for you
but it ain't necessarily so


MY FUNNY VALENTINE 
- lorenz hart

my funny valentine
sweet comic valentine
you make me smile
with my heart
your looks are laughable
unphotographable
yet you're my favourite
work of art

is yr figure less than greek?
is yr mouth a little weak?
and when you open it to speak
are you wise?
i think you'd be surprised 

but don't change a hair for me
not if you care for me
stay little valentine stay
every day is valentine's day
