The Lyrics

...the imagery of " lucy in the sky with diamonds " set to another tune...
when your mind pulled out of the trip where it went
you talked of a shady garden
where some rocking horse chumps chewed on marshmallow lumps
tangerine trees, there was...you thought, at least, there was
floating down the river most contentedly
your mind had been affected by that LSD
this diamond broad did greet you...you respond with no speed
psychedelic sounding swill....marmalade, the skies were filled

here she comes...right by the turnstile, seen
here she comes...flowers of yellow and green
here she comes...eyes full of sun, then she's gone
you're out of your mind now, baby...this ain't the way to see god
young girl...you called her the diamond broad
young girl...you called her the diamond broad

those halloween tabs gonna knock you flat
got your head in the clouds, as this girl you chase
there's plasticine blokes...that you saw 'fore you woke
train station down below...looking glass for tie, you know
lucy's kinda hazy...makes no sense, the words she spoke
climb into the back and let your mind drift into smoke
things are all florescent cause your mind is bent and broke
cooked up and synthesized...diamond broad, kaleido-eyed

here she comes...right by the turnstile, seen
here she comes...flowers of yellow and green
here she comes...eyes full of sun, then she's gone
you're out of your mind now, baby...this ain't the way to see god
young girl...you called her the diamond broad
young girl...you called her the diamond broad

in a cab made of newspaper, you find a little niche
hoping that you'll soon talk to that psychedelic witch
when the acid comes on strong...there's bound to be a glitch
you'll be in sorrow...when you come down tomorrow

here she comes...right by the turnstile, seen
here she comes...flowers of yellow and green
here she comes...eyes full of sun, then she's gone
you're out of your mind now, baby...this ain't the way to see god
young girl...you called her the diamond broad
young girl...you called her the diamond broad

ooh ooh ooh...you called her the diamond broad
ooh ooh ooh...you called her the diamond broad
oh wow...woo hoo...high and how !
called her the diamond broad...broad !
called her the diamond broad...called her, called her
called her the diamond broad...called her, called her...ooh !
called her the diamond broad
keep cool...diamond broad rules..ok...hey hey hey hey
beware of the diamond broad
beware of the diamond broad
beware of the diamond broad
beware of the diamond broad
beware of the diamond broad

Truly inspired. Of all the hybrid parodies I've seen, this is my favorite! 555

This was fantastic. Brought back funny memories tho' (no, not of acid). A friend of mine bought this album and used to play it with the volume all the way up and all the doors and windows open. She didn't even like the album, she just thought it would make her look cool - heh heh. Ah, those teen years...

clever idea...I've never seen a "hybrid" here before. Now, can I have some of what you're smoking ?
