Twelfth Night
Fact And Fiction

Dancing In The Dream

here we are in dreamland
safe warm and free
better than the outside
come and sleep with me

come join the dancing in the dream
dancing in the dream

no need to ever wake up
no need to use your eyes
after all the outside
is no paradise

come join the dancing in the dream
dancing in the dream

funky dogs on mopeds buzz
to bang the old black doorway
where the paint is peely
crumble like the colour of an eye
saccharine and milk-white
covers tablecloth of teapot
which is poetry in purple
can you hear a baby die

Friday's flower centre has
a bald patch on the forehead
meanwhile Brian makes a
cup of tea without his mother's clothes
pussycat wears wellies
on a pogo-stick of sapphire
while the psychedelic bison
stuffs some tulips up it's nose

all the while we're playing
dancing life away
catch up every teatime
see what's on today

come join the dancing in the dream
dancing in the dream
dancing in the dream
