lyrics

Deliah Derbishire on the green lamp
Small specks of mint snuff
Bow ties, fine art (building Malcom’s blue sound)
Building a Buggati from parts

Zinoviev is writing a libretto for Birtwistle’s thing
Cockerell built my Small Stone and Akai… he can build anything

Oh in Putney studios
Hanging out in ‘69
I wish I was moving pegs there on a plug board
Everyone needs Synthi time…

I’m tuning a Wurlitzer, with a small blob of solder
Tristram is a radar engineer
“Fag ash in the peg board holes,” noted Limb Dryly
Howell’s psychedelic LP’s

Blue veils and sand (Yule tide goose Noel)
Fish paste and tea (Crumpets with Paddy Kingsland)
To the galaxy… hitch hike in a flying shed
Isnaj Dui, alcohol depression and SG’s

The oxide likes to detatch itself from the backing tapes
Unless you use an oven to bake it back on, it falls off in clumps
This Wilf Lunn inventiveness will surely save you cash…
135 degrees for up to 2 hours, like the Valley of Death

At the Albert with Lex, after the War Rooms, we always have pistaccios
They have PM photo walls and a former Division Bell
One afternoon we saw a drunk girl’s hair fire on the candle

Kiss his hand and mend his socks, he’s feeling sad as he sits and sags
A fish has not got ten fins. He has a fat leg and a hot hand
One afternoon we helped a drunk girl
