Rambling On

Rambling On


Our local picture house
Was showing a Batman movie
You see this guy fly up in the sky
Thought to myself why shouldn't I
So I bought a pair of wings
Went up upon a wall
I was about to jump into the air
When a man from the street called
He said
Hey wait a minute
Don't you realize the danger
What do you think
You are some kind of angel
I considered for a minute
Thought he only speeks the truth
For the barbells on my eyelids
Only emphasised my youth
And the sawdust in my plimsolls
Means the same to him as me
But that's neither here nor further
So I spoke considerately
Now if you understand
Just what I'm trying to say
Whatever you do don't grin
You'll give the game away
By now a crowd had gathered
And it seemed that all was lost
In the anger of the moment
I had diced with death and lost
It seemed to me the time was right
So I burst into song
In the anger of the moment
The crowd began to sing along
I could not see a way out
Of this predicament
Just then a breeze came through the trees
And up in the air I went
I must have flown a mile
Or maybe it was eight
Thought to myself pretty soon
I'd hit the golden Gates
Just then a passing bird
For no reason I could see
Took a peck at my wings
And that was the end of me
I went down hit the ground faster
Than the speed of sound
Luckily I broke no bones
Only tore my underclothes
