Gong : Acidmotherhood
Super Cotton | Old Foole's Game | Brainwash Me | Bible Study | Waving - lyrics by daevid allen

SUPERCOTTON

This is the story of bee-you-tea-fool 
Mango Cotton and how her marma-lady 
voice got stolen by one 
DJ (dodgy) Queenie Nylon Day-glo Doof 
only to be won back by Cotton's 
very own altered-ego: SUPER COTTON 
after the acid mother of all battles!


MANGO! COTTON!

Mango cotton
She is sad
Something happen
Very bad
Mango Cotton
Make no noise
DJ dodgy
Steal her voice
Tell me girls
Tell me boys
How to get back
Mango noise?

MANGO! COTTON!

DJ Queenie
She's trouble!
She is indie-structa-bubble
Much too old
Much too young
And she's got 
The cutest bum
Much too old
Much too young
Trips on acid
Speaks in tongues
Ecstacy is energy
Pluck the mango
From the tree
DJ (dodgy) Nylon

Queen
Dayglo Doof
Lost her yoof
There yoo have
Tha wickid trooth
Victim of The Virus Doof!
She ain't made
Of human stuff
She's tough
She's tough
She ain't made of 
WO-man stuff
She's rough
She's rough

DEE JAY D-DAY!
SUPER COTTON SUPER STRONG
SAVE US FROM COMMERCIAL SONG

SUPER COTTON DO NO WRONG
GONE TO GET BACK COTTON SONG

Watch her as she leaves the ground
Travels at the speed of sound
Off to get that dodgy DJ
Get back Cotton's vocal sound

Super cotton go mango
super cotton mango go
get that voice back from the DJ
get tha juice go manGO
sing sing sing go manGO
ba na na man go now
super cotton we need you
with yer super power

om banana yum cha cha
wo-man mango ha ha ha
om banana yum cha cha
wo-man mango ha ha ha

SUPER! COTTON!

man go banana man go
go cotton go go go
get that voice back from the DJ
get that juice back go mango
sing sing sing go man go
ba na na man go now
super cotton we need ya
with ya super power
ecstacy is energy 
and LSD is alchemy
Pluck the mango from the tree
See the DJ dance 4 free
Mango cotton Jam for me
Take yr voice and GO! GO! MANGO!!

and so the battle raged until 
the dodji DJ Nylon Queen
lost her groove to the intrepid
Soooper Cotton; fearless heroine 
of mother planet gong
and champignon 
of peace and justice 
for mangos everywhere!

GO MAN! MANGO!

Gilli: ha ha!


OLD FOOLES GAME

tryin to make sense
of the pleasure and the pain

tryin hard not to complain

in an old fooles game
living on a planet

tryin to build a wall
around a space with your name
tryin to build a bridge between 
the spirit and the brain

tryin hard not to complain

BIBLE STUDY

I AM SPENDING A LOT OF TIME 
ON THE PHONE
TALKING TO FELLOW LEADERS 
ABOUT THE NEED FOR WEAPONS 
OF MASS DESTRUCTION TO BE DEPLOYED 
HERE AT HOME

SO THEREFORE THE…ERR…UHH
…MY JOB IS TO…
SMOKE A BIBLE
…AND THAT'S WHAT I'M GONNA DO!


WAVING

you ask me what makes anger
you ask me why we rage
you ask me how to kill a fire 
or turn another page
you ask me what makes lightning strike 
or why the rain brings flood
what burns a nation down to sand
why war spills so much blood

and just for a moment
I thought you saw me wave
but you were looking the other way

you ask me how I taught myself to
turn the force around
look fear and anger in the eyes and
turn it into sound
you ask if I can ride the wave 
of dangerous emotion
and if bitter disappointments are 
the measure of my passion

and just for a moment
I thought I caught your eye
but you were turning the other way

when you were a young one 
you took the road you wanted 
you didn't live to compromise
you took the world in with your eyes 
and cut your portion down to size 

and as you grew we always knew
that you were not for turning
but when you take this path in life
remember that you light 
the fire you burn in
