Blackbird Singing With Bluebeard

With 'action' just another word       [Roland ]

For sitting on one's bum       [Beefy ]

Ambition seems a bit absurd       [Anon. ]

For idlers on the run       [Padfoot ]

But if you ask the reason why       [Beefy ]

We choose the paths of ease       [Roland ]

We'll look you straightly in the eye       [Beefy ]

And utter words like these:       [Roland ]

Get the hell from out our sight!       [Apsley ]

Beyond our eyeballs' ken!       [Roland ]

Be friends unto the blackest night -       [Apsley ]

Beyond the last 'amen'       [Roland ]

Begone, you evil layabout,       [Trad. ]

We have no place for you       [(trad) ]

For we prefer a gadabout       [F ]

At midnight's drak curfew...       [Apsley ]
