Algo

Podrido es

AND THIS A TUNE TO CRY

A TIME TO BE LOST, IN THE DARK

circle

tumba

A-RUM, A-DUM!

a pear buttered plum, a

a numb rum, a dumb ditty plum

pluma!

O FLAME!

Heat, light,, color –

Do it in another

So where did that long song come from?

Goonga!

Jazz riff

one two three four

Let the bamboo move on

como tuerca invisible

HAIL IT!

face change

opened eyes clue

glue fork singing in the rain

AND WET DOG STIR BY WAVING FACE

change face.
