AL STEWART lyrics - Sparks Of Ancient Light

The Ear Of The Night

Original and similar lyrics
You put your tongue in the ear of the night Expecting rejection but finding instead A certain connection that left you surprised And then gave you electrical thoughts in your head Emboldened by this you were tempted a kiss On the brow of a mystery passing you by And thus we're afforded a simple reward In the shape of a chord from a street corner choir Through her window you can see her With her solitary air You felt a certain twinge inside you From her military hair And you'd have normally acted quite formally This was the moment to open the door You instantly mated and constantly dated Though your mother hated the clothes that she wore Oh well

The Fat Lady Of Limbourgh

Brian Eno "Taking Tiger Mountain"
Well I rang up Pantucci spoke to Lucia Gave them all they needed to know If affairs are proceeding as we're expecting Soon enough the weak spots will show I assume you understand that we have options on your time And will ditch you in the harbour if we must But if it all works out nicely, you'll get the bonus you deserve From doctors we trust. The Fat Lady of Limbourgh Looked at the samples that we sent And furrowed her brow You would never believe that She'd tasted Royalty and Fame If you saw her now But her sense of taste is such that she'll distinguish with her tongue The subtleties a spectrograph would miss And announce her decision while demanding her reward A jelly fish kiss. Now we checked out this duck quack Who laid a big egg oh so black it shone just like gold. And the kids from the city finding it pretty Took it home and there it was sold It was changing hands for weeks Till someone left it by their fire And it melted to a puddle on the floor For it was only a candle a Roman scandal Oh oh and now it's a pool. That's what we're paid for That's what we're paid for That's what we're paid for here.
