Melancholy Wednesday

(Todays’ sermon is based on lyrics by the Reverend Hellfire,

written to accompany a forthcoming tune from the new Tapeloops project.

Stay tuned for more updates, sportsfans)

MELANCHOLY WEDNESDAY

*

Melancholy Wednesday,

Sorrows they are all around,

Like the raindrops outside falling/

falling on the ground.

The raindrops they keep falling/

falling all the day,

until they merge into one Ocean

then they wash the World away.

*

Melancholy Wednesday.

What are we to do?

The World rolls on without us

Sit back enjoy the view.

*

Melancholy Wednesday,

the World beneath a sea of glass.

Peering thru the viewscreen I watch

brightly coloured fishes pass,

sweetly singing in the rain

they feed amongst sea horses

in the fields of gently waving  grass.

*

Melancholy Wednesday.

What are we to do?

The World rolls on without us

We sit back enjoy the view.

The whole World washed and shiny,

like a statue that’s renewed,

or a green hill rising

from the Sea unto a lonely Sailor’s view.

Peacock tails & Rainbows, Dear,

& Silver Linings just for you.

Peacock tails & Rainbows,

& Silver Linings just for you.

*

Melancholy Wednesday.

What are we to do?

The World rolls on without us

Just sit back enjoy the view.

*

Melancholy Wednesday,

the Sun sets on a rising Moon

but who cares anyway, I’ve been

seeing Silhouettes since Noon,

shadowed on the velvet curtains

darkening my room,

till I emerge to drink the evening

wine and sing this

filled with folly/

almost jolly/

melancholy tune.

*

Melancholy Wednesday.

What are we to do?

The World rolls on without us

So sit back enjoy the view.
