Donovan - Hurdy Gurdy Man - [link]

Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I open my eyes to take a peep
To find that I was by the sea
Gazing with tranquillity.
'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love,
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Histories of ages past
Unenlightened shadows cast
Down through all eternity
The crying of humanity.
'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love,
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of love,
Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang,
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy he sang

When the truth gets buried deep
Beneath the thousand years of sleep
Time demands a turn-around
And once again the truth is found
Awakening the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Who comes singing songs of love.
[link]

A pistol shot at 5 o'clock
The bells of heaven ring
"Tell me what you done it for"
"No I won't tell you a thing
"Yesterday I begged you
before I hit the ground -
all I leave behind me
is only what I found
"If you can abide it
let the hurdy-gurdy play -
Stranger ones have come by here
before they flew away
"I will not condemn you
nor yet would I deny"
"I would ask the same of you
but failing will not die
"Take up your china doll
it's only fractured -
and just a little nervous
from the fall"
[link]
"...the hurdy-gurdy is of course often depicted in late Mediaeval/early Renaissance art being played by a skeleton (ha!) at the side of a dying man. Most famously it can be seen in Pieter Breughel's majestic "Triumph of Death" played by a skeleton watching the enormous rampant destruction of Life by Death passing before his eyes."

wow you are using some hot stuff -American Folklore and Ancient Mythology!! I like the grateful dead [link] song China Doll...I have intensely studied their lyrics and the experiment and phenomena up close and personal, and far away as they'd take me, but Berkely puts out the best annotated lyrics text, this is beautiful, that you'd even dare....:heart:
