The Lyrics

(long winding guitar intro)

Eager Beav - chair, toys, halve a guitar
You've sawn the new car
Your sofa's bye bye
Parts severed gonna fly
Purr! Motor's revvin' real high
Dare cut the roof thru!

Well the hallway's spattered deep bloodspecks, so I glean Spot's toast - oh dear!
Houseplants are vivisected, let's go wield walls full o' chinks
And on the way
Slice the sink!

And it's a deluge - a game with a maim ploy
See all dividing 'fore groovy chain!

Sawdust's clock now
Too bad about the pillows
Now lotta bits of davenport
Is strewn about in heaps, I'll
Shear so choppy wreakin' shards about

Sever study shelves, plasma screen
Lav's now seen in parts
Upset the applecart
This chainsaw bladey packing monster
It's an awf' unforget'ble nasty scene

And it's a deluge - a game with a maim ploy
See all dividing 'fore groovy chain!

(guitar solo that is abruptly cut off and replaced with a motoring drone that goes on and on....)

Thanks Alvin! I was waiting for you to show up and be the solo voter! :-) (wasn't there a big Pink Floyd fan around here somewhere? Can't remember who it was...)

Delightfully strange! "Upset the applecart"--what's up with that, I have used a similar phrase in "Tarot Card Shuffle". 545. Thanks, M&P! Keep The Floyd Faith!

I was almost literally pissing myself laughing at the first half, then kind of went "huh?" in the second. Have to give it 4 because the first bit really was that good! :-D
