Let There Be More Light
Far far far away way
people heard him say say
I will find a way way
there will come a day day
something will be done
Then at last the mighty ship
descending at a point of flame
made contact with the human race at no time
Now now now is the time time
time to be be be aware
Not so far the solar bear
in human role revealed to him
a living soul of heavenward forever
Sunlight, something in my eye
something in the sky
waiting there for me
The antelope grows hurling back
the servicemen would like to sigh
the memory went floating round
as Lucy in the sky
Oh oh did you ever know
no never ever will they ascend
Summoning in his cosmic powers
and flowing slightly from his toes
psychedelic nations fly

Remember A Day
Remember a day before today
a day when you were young
renew a play along with time
evening with a thyme
Sing now a song that can't be sung
without a morning's kiss
dream you shall be it if you wish
look for your king
why can't we play today
why can't we stay that way
Climb your fatal apple tree
try to catch the sun
hide from your little brother's gun
dream yourself away
Why can't we reach the sun
why can't we blow the years away
go away
remember remember

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun
Little by little the night turns around
counting by leaves which tremble in the dawn
notices leaning on each other and yearning
under the leaves the swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
On to the mountain watching the Watcher
breaking the darkness, breaking the grapevine
the moment your flaw is run to your shadow
notice the shadow that reopens the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
heart of the sun
Breaking the shape of his questions for ever
when the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson I gave him
Set the controls for the heart of the sun
heart of the sun

Corporal Clegg
Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
he won it in the war in nineteen forty four
Corporal Clegg had a medal too
in orange and blue, he found it in the zoo
Dear oh dear, oh are really sad for me
dear oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me
Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him
Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin
Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream
from Her Majesty the Queen, his boots were very clean,
Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
he's never been the same but no one is to blame

See - Saw
Fairly girls were very much in love
but he doesn't mind
pickin' up his sister
makes his way to the see-saw land
all the way she smiled
she goes up while he goes down
Sits on a snake in the river
laughter in his sleeves
sister's throwing stones
hoping for a hit
he doesn't know, so there
she goes up while he goes down
Another time, another day
her brother's plain to me
another time, another day day day
She was selling plastic flowers
on a sunday afternoon
pickin' up me, she has not got the time to care
all can see, he's not there
she grows up for another man and he's down

Jugband Blues
It's awfully considerate of you to drink of me here
and I'm most obliged to you for making it clear
that I'm not there
and I never knew the room could be so big
and I never knew the room could be so blue
and I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
and brought me here instead dressed in red
And I'm wondering who could be writing this song
I don't care if the sun don't shine
I don't care if nothing is mine
and I don't care if I'm nervous with you
I'll do my loving in the winter
And the sea isn't green
and I love the queen
and what exactly is a dream
and what exactly is a joke
