Now is the Happiest Time of Your Life

/* euterpe studio rehearsal tapes (bananamoon obscura 1) variant */


i'm singing for the love of my lady
i'm singing for her love [?]
i'm singing for the love of the lover
i'm singing for her love [?]

and when she comes to see me
/* but when we are together */
we sing a beautiful song

i'm singing for the love of music
i'm singing for the love [?]

you know we come from the stars
(we) came down to earth
to find out who we are
/* to know who we are */
from far far away
we came down here

you know we are the world
we do what we want
but it's not what we need
we make ourselves god
(and) believe we are free

but who's free?


now it's bye bye from my friends and i
we hope [...?]
looking for new ways
to keep us alive till we die
or get high

/*
here on my island i live
lots to forget and forgive
[?-ing] for new ways
to keep us alive till we die
don't know why
*/

(now) somebody said it today
that to survive in this world
/* if you're to survive in this world */]
there's a game you must play
(you must play)
games to play

sell me a something to straighten my head
sell me a dolly to stroke in my bed
celluloid lady i hope you're not real
/* beautiful lady i hope you're not real */
feeling you i'll never know how i feel
/* [?] stealing you i'll never know how you feel */

but i know how you feel
/* here on my island */ {faux pas}


plaster goddess talked/*told*/ to me
that's the way it seems/*seemed*/ to be
love your life and family

now is/*it's*/ the happiest time of your life (repeat)
/* (repeat and fade) */

[?] is all the times
and i'll be seeing you
the next time round the plastic spiral...
