[slow zoom to some skinny creature with ragged clothes in a darkened room]

[cut, feet in contre jour, pan to a guitar case next to them and two shaky hands reaching out for it]

[reflection of light, white out]

[music starts]

Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
you have no word
trip, trip to a dream dragon
hide your wings in a ghost tower
sails crackling at every plate we break
cracked by scattered needles
the little minute gong


[someone is slightly overdoing descriptions here]

coughs and clears his throat
madam you see before you stand
hey ho, never be still
the old original favourite grand
grasshoppers green herbarian band
and the tune they play is "in us confide"
so trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
you have no word

Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride


[music dies all of a sudden]

[cut, wide angle view of a white room]

"Oh yeah. It's just another one of these saturdays."

[dampened laughter]

"Did you hear that?"

[more dampened laughter]

"Yeah, mate. The madcap laughed at the man of the border."

"Hold on. This line is supposed to come later. First we have to be lost in the wood."

[all of a sudden the music continues]

Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
meant even less to me than I thought
with a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
clover honey pots and mystic shining feed...
well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border
hey ho, huff the Talbot
"Cheat" he cried shouting kangaroo
it's true in their tree they cried

Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride


[an interruption without a cause, just for the fun of it]

The madcap laughed at the man on the border
hey ho, huff the Talbot
the winds they blew and the leaves did wag
they'll never put me in their bag
the seas will reach and always seep
so high you go, so low you creep
the wind it blows in tropical heat
the drones they throng on mossy seats
the squeaking door will always squeak
two up, two down we'll never limit
so merrily trip forgo my side

Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride

Just crossed my mind that I should properly refer to the sorce of the quoted text: That's of course Mister Barrett from his The Madcap laughs album and the title's called Octopus.
Can even be found on Youtube:

There's no particular reason for posting this, other than the melody has been spinning around my head for a couple of days.
