Lyrics DREAM OF A LAND
MY SOUL IS FROM,
I HEAR A HAND
STROKE ON A DRUM,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
ELEGANT BOY,
BEAUTIFUL GIRL,
DANCING FOR JOY,
DELICATE WHIRL,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

TWO YOUNG LOVERS
ARE FACE TO FACE,
WITH UNDULATING GRACE,
THEY GENTLY SWAY,
THEN SLIP AWAY
TO SOME SECLUDED PLACE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

WHISPERING TREES
ECHO THEIR SIGHS,
PASSIONATE PLEAS,
TENDER REPLIES,
SHADES OF DELIGHT
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
LOVERS ON FLIGHT,
UPWARD THEY GLIDE,
BURST AT THE HEIGHT,
SLOWLY SUBSIDE,
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

AND MY SLUMBERING FANTASY
ASSUMES REALITY
UNTIL IT SEEMS
IT'S NOT A DREAM,
THE TWO
ARE YOU AND ME.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.
SHADES OF DELIGHT,
COCOA HUE,
RICH AS A NIGHT,
AFRO BLUE.

Lyrics DEAR PRESIDENT NIXON,
I AM WRITING YOU
THIS HERE LETTER
AS A RESULT
OF WAKING UP THIS MORNING,
HUNG OVER,
AND LEFT BY MY WIFE
WHO SAID:
DEAR X AS IN HUSBAND,
I AM AT MY MOMMAS,
COME AND GET ME
IF YOU DARE.

NOW, MISTER PRESIDENT,
I CONSIDER MYSELF A VICTIM
OF THE VIETNAM WAR
WHEN I ENTERED THE LIVING ROOM
THIS MORNING
THAT IS THE LIVING ROOM
WE CALL THE DEMILITARIZED ZONE,
MY WIFE WAS STANDING THERE
WITH ROLLERS IN HER HAIR
AND A ROLLING PIN
IN HER HAND.
I WENT INTO
A PREVENTATIVE REACTION STRIKE,
STRIKING HER
BEFORE SHE COULD STRIKE ME.
I THEN CHECKED HER
INTO THE LATETRAIN HOTEL
AND LOCKED THE DOOR,
WHEN I WOKE UP
THIS MORNING,
SHE WAS GONE!

NOW, MISTER PRESIDENT,
I ASK THIS FAVOR:
DONT PUBLICIZE
YOUR NEXT WAR,
BECAUSE
WHEN WE EMPLOY YOUR STRATEGY,
WE ALSO EMPLOY
YOUR ARTIFICIALNESS.

YOURS TRULY,
GEORGE WASHINGTON BROWN, ESQUIRE

Lyrics FIND A SHADOW
CAST BY RAINBOWS,
THERE YOULL MEET THE SAGE,
FEEDING RABBITS
BITS OF LETTUCE
OR CLEANING OUT THE CAGE,
HE CAN GIVE YOU MORE DIRECTION
THAN YOUVE EVER KNOWN.
SHOW YOU
YOUR BRONZED BABY SHOES
NOW,
MY HOW YOU HAVE GROWN!
AINT IT NICE TO FLY?
YOURE WAVING
AS SOFT CLOUDS GO BY,
BUT PEACE WONT BE STILL
OF ITS OWN FREE WILL.
SAY YOU WANT TO GO
EXPLORING
YOU GOT TO FIND SOME TRUTH.
CANT STAND ONE MORE DAY
OF CHRISTIANS
SHOUTING DOWN
AT YOU.
YOU SAY
YOU DONT DIG POLITICS
THAT NEVER WAS YOUR BAG,
PEOPLE WHO COULD RUN
FOR OFFICE
WAVE THEIR PRIVATE FLAG.
AINT IT NICE TO FLY?
YOURE WAVING
AS SOFT CLOUDS GO BY,
BUT PEACE WONT BE STILL
OF ITS OWN FREE WILL.
AINT IT NICE TO FLY?
YOURE WAVING
AS SOFT CLOUDS GO BY,
BUT PEACE WONT BE STILL
OF ITS OWN FREE WILL.
