The Lyrics

A tribute to former Moody Blues member Mike Pinder.
My, my, my

Moody Blues down to three

They once had a sound

Now what is this drek that they sing?

Long ago they were kings

They lost a sound
They went down--
--hill af-ter,
the amazing days of Pinder!

Now they sound just like any band

No more "My Song" my dear, no more "How Is It We Are Here",
"When You're A Free Man"

No songs like that in their plan

They lost a sound
They went so down--
--hill af-ter,
the amazing days of Pinder!

"Lost In A Lost World", my friend,

Are the last three Moody Blues without Mike Pinder's sonic muse

In "Om" Mike soared --

-- on "In Search Of The Lost Chord"

No profound
Or cosmic sound
Mike Pinder's fans
Feel like "Melancholy Man"

Ahhh, "Have You Heard", "The Voyage" is done

Since The Moody Blues lost the one

Who wrote music about the Sun

(And) Cosmic lyrics sublime

All their new songs are a yawn since Pinder's poetry has gone

No cause for delight --

-- since "One Step In-to The Light"

They lost a sound
They went down--
--hill af-ter,
the amazing days of Pinder!

Moody Blues
Why'd they lose,
The amazing Mike Pinder's muse?

Moody Blues
Have no muse
After Mike Pinder they did lose!

Moody Blues
Are a snooze
After losing Mike Pinder's muse!

5's for a fine tribute to the core of a once-great group. Can still remember the day my best bud at the time turned up in school one morning raving about "this great new song ..." ("Go Now").

"om" is not only my favorite moody's song but one of my faves of all time....great tribute....the same thing happened to that once great band 'genesis'....after gabriel left they went way downhill.....

A tribute and a satire at the same time - excellent, JD. Say, did you ever find that "Rocket Spam" recording?
