“A Whiter Shade Of Pale”

We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor
I was feeling kinda seasick
but the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
as the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
the waiter brought a tray
And so it was that later
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale
She said, ‘There is no reason
and the truth is plain to see.’
But I wandered through my playing cards
and would not let her be
one of sixteen vestal virgins
who were leaving for the coast
and although my eyes were open
they might have just as well’ve been closed
She said, ‘I’m home on shore leave,’
though in truth we were at sea
so I took her by the looking glass
and forced her to agree
saying, ‘You must be the mermaid
who took Neptune for a ride.’
But she smiled at me so sadly
that my anger straightway died
If music be the food of love
then laughter is its queen
and likewise if behind is in front
then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
and attacked the ocean bed

“Homburg”

Your multilingual business friend
has packed her bags and fled
Leaving only ash-filled ashtrays
and the lipsticked unmade bed
The mirror on reflection
has climbed back upon the wall
for the floor she found descended
and the ceiling was too tall
Your trouser cuffs are dirty
and your shoes are laced up wrong
you’d better take off your homburg
‘cos your overcoat is too long
The town clock in the market square
stands waiting for the hour
when its hands they both turn backwards
and on meeting will devour
both themselves and also any fool
who dares to tell the time
And the sun and moon will shatter
and the signposts cease to sign

“A Salty Dog”

‘All hands on deck, we’ve run afloat!’ I heard the captain cry
‘Explore the ship, replace the cook: let no one leave alive!’
Across the straits, around the Horn: how far can sailors fly?
A twisted path, our tortured course, and no one left alive
We sailed for parts unknown to man, where ships come home to die
No lofty peak, nor fortress bold, could match our captain’s eye
Upon the seventh seasick day we made our port of call
A sand so white, and sea so blue, no mortal place at all
We fired the gun, and burnt the mast, and rowed from ship to shore
The captain cried, we sailors wept: our tears were tears of joy
Now many moons and many Junes have passed since we made land
A salty dog, this seaman’s log: your witness my own hand

“Soldier”

The sky has no end tonight
Clear view beyond the stars
Daylight in the early dawn
There’s no-one left unscarred
Sand is drying up the tears
Burnt shells soaking up the sun
The generals laughing with no fear
Because their work is done

Liquid gold was in their sights
Paid with blood by infantry
Giant statues ripped and torn
All engineered so brilliantly
Back home it’s the Wild West
Children sleeping in their beds
Grown men that passed the test
Now free to go and wed

I’m through with the fighting
All the terror and the pain
I’ve seen the lightning
Felt the thunder and the rain
The silver birds come screaming
Painting blood right through the skies
Still I worry, and I wonder
Wonder why

They tell us it’s OK to kill
They’re just vermin in the sand
Don’t worry ’bout the blood you spill
You’ll be forgiven by God’s hand
The images etched behind their eyes
Will never fade away
Eternal buildings turned to dust
In just one day

“Sunday Morning”

When I leave work every Friday
Try to play as hard as I can
Exploring all the different shades of living
‘Cos I’m that kind of man
I think of all the hard hours
So many closed doors
So when it’s time for my sunshine
Can’t help wanting more and more

Sunday morning, Sunday morning
Don’t have time to take no rest
‘Cos every minute’s more holy to me
It makes me feel so free

Sometimes the wild nights go rolling
On into next day’s sun
Always smile when my head hits the pillow
‘Bout the time the trains start to run
I think of all the bad times
So many slippery floors
So when it’s time for my sunshine
Can’t help wanting more and more

Sunday morning, Sunday morning
I don’t have time to take no rest
‘Cos every minute’s more holy to me
It makes me feel so free

Always hope the weekend never ends
Work keeps stealing my best days
Try to get around all those twisted bends
While the light just ebbs away
I think of all the grey seas
So many lost shores
So when it’s time for my sunshine
I can’t help wanting more and more

Sunday morning, Sunday morning
Don’t have time to take no rest
‘Cos every minute’s more holy to me
It always makes me feel so free
That’s more holy to me
Sunday morning I’m so free
