Songtekst

JUMBO:

Jumbo said to say goodnight
See you in the morning
Please don't lose your appetite
He knows who is yawning
Tomorrow you can climb a mountain
Sail a sailboat through a fountain
And Jumbo said to say goodnight
He's a friend of yours

Play no games he'd say to me
When the light is gone
He is right he'd say to me
We know who is wrong
So please don't make no hesitation
There will be no recreation
And Jumbo said to say goodnight
He's a friend of yours

Listen, you can chew it
If it's loud enough you hear it
Cause it's narrow as a sparrow
And it shoots a bow and arrow
Through a top that full of powder
With a gun it's even louder
And it's shattering to hear
You mustn't listen with your ear
But it gets to you

Yes, yes, yes (It gets to you)
Yes, yes, yes (You)
Yes, yes, yes (You)
Yes, yes, yes

THE SINGER SANG HIS SONG:

He'd sing his song most every night
Wishing she was there behind the light
The people danced and sang along
On the cardboard stage he never sang it wrong

And the piper played the tune
And the drummer won his spurs
But the song that the singer sang
Was for her

Now the singer's song is never heard
And the visions he once saw are disappeared
Now they never dance or sing along
But on the cardboard stage he never sang it wrong

And the piper played the tune
And the drummer won his spurs
But the song that the singer sang
Was for her

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
