"Bantam Boys"

[ from the album "Otto Spooky" (2005) ]

Lyrics

O Africa and orient bring gifts
Spigot weed and egg of the teal
Master baker bring me eel
O your legs were lovely
The synth, bring the synth
Bring the rickety raggedy synth

You harlequins you play such shit
The colour is clean
But you pollute the ballet shoes
You are trying to keep them new
I'm sorry for you

Here comes the queen
Fat and obscene
See her a-staggering
Bringing her bantam boys along
In a line behind her

Walk, walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the filters, ringing the filters
Ringing the summer in

Walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the eunuch, ringing the eunuch
Ringing the eunuch in

Dr Walford Bodie dragging along on a string
A spaniel made of tin
Arise, arise
O Phoebus shall arise

Here comes the queen
Fat and obscene
See her a-staggering
Bringing her bantam boys along
In a line behind her

Walk, walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the filters, ringing the filters
Ringing the summer in

Walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the eunuch, ringing the eunuch
Ringing the eunuch in

Here comes the queen
Fat and obscene
See her a-staggering
Bringing her bantam boys along
In a line behind her

Walk, walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the filters, ringing the filters
Ringing the summer in

Walk, walk with a bassoon in the rain
Ringing the eunuch, ringing the eunuch
Ringing the summer in
