A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS


LET THERE BE MORE LIGHT
[ Waters ]

Far far far far away - way
People heard him say - say
I will find a way - way
There will come a day - day
Something will be done
Then at last the mighty ship descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race at Mildenhall
Now now now is the time - time
Time to be be be aware
Carter's father saw it there
And knew the Rhull revealed to him
The living soul of Hereward the Wake
Oh my, something in my eye - eye
Something in the sky - sky
Waiting there for me
The outer lock rolled slowly back
The servicemen were heard to sigh
For there revealed in flowing robes was Lucy in the sky
Oh oh did you ever?
No no never ever will they
I'll say!
Summoning his cosmic power
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed



REMEMBER A DAY

[ Wright ]

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes
Sing a song that can't be sung
Without the morning's kiss
Queen you shall be if you wish
Look for your king
Why can't we play today?
Why can't we stay that way?
Climb your favourite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother's gun
Dream yourself away
Why can't we reach the sun?
Why can't we blow the years away?
Blow away
Remember...



SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN
[ Waters ]

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven
Whether the Sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun



CORPORAL CLEGG
[ Waters ]

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
He won it in the war
In nineteen forty four
Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange, red and blue
He found it in the zoo
Dear oh dear, oh are they really sad for me?
Dear oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me?
Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?
Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He's never been the same
No one is to blame
Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream
From her Majesty, the Queen
His boots were very clean
Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?
Corporal Clegg
Corporal Clegg

SEE-SAW
[ Wright ]

Marigolds are very much in love
But he doesn't mind
Picking up sister
He makes his way in to the sea-saw land
All the way up she smiles
She goes up as he goes down, down
Sits on a stick in the river
Laughter in his sleep
Sister's throwing stones hoping for a hit
He doesn't know, so then
She goes up while he goes down, down
Another time, another day
A brother's way to leave
Another time, another day
Selling plastic flowers on a Sunday afternoon
Picking up weeds
She hasn't got the time to care
All can see he's not there
She grows up for another man, and he's down
Another time, another day
A brother's way to leave
Another time, another day



JUGBAND BLUES
[ Barrett ]

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm most obliged to you for making it clear that I'm not here
And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon could be so blue
And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
And brought me here instead dressed in red
And I'm wondering who could be writing this song
I don't care if the sun don't shine
And I don't care if nothing is mine
And I don't care if I'm nervous with you
I'll do my loving in the Winter
And the sea isn't green
And I love the queen
And what exactly is a dream?
And what exactly is a joke?
