———————————………

*from ‘My People were Fair and had Sky in their Hair…’ (1968)*

Verse 1:

G C
Broken English words, cracked the air like a bell.
Am Amaj7
She had a chateau in Virginia Waters, free from all those culture vultures.

G C
Her silver car, a silver cloud, cloaked the air in a shroud.
Am Amaj7
Her pearly author’s teeth, Tore the seasoned cedar coloured pheasant.

G C
Her one rich wish, is to write a book about,
Am Amaj7
A ve-netian mother’s problems, on a barge in Little Venice.

Verse 4:

She peers at the portrait, of her poetess grandmother,
Am Amaj7
Who’s theatrical in character, wise just like Socrates.

Doo doo, dah dah dah, dah dah dah,
Am Amaj7
Cha-cha-cha-cha, ba ba ba ba ba ba.

Verse 5:

She sinks her nails into the aged canvas,
Am
But the power from the wordster’s head,
Amaj7
Was cool and shrill and frightening.

Miss Drag is intermingled, with the powder-blue chaise lounge.

A ve-netian mother’s problems, on a barge in Little Venice.

Cha-cha-cha-cha, ba ba ba ba ba ba.
