Once a Ghost, Always a Ghost

This song is by Curved Air and appears on the album Phantasmagoria (1972).

Once upon a time I stumbled on a master plan
Better than a time-machine, simple to understand
Just consume a pint of this and one or two of these
Head in arm and hand in hand we'll haunt the seven-seas

If you choose we can confuse your favourite enemy
Find a dungeon with a pungent tropicality
Waft about and groan a bit and make him feel at ease
Head in arm and hand in hand we'll haunt the seven-seas

Isn't it original to be invisible?
Be a ghost and make the most of when you come to call
Nobody will know you're there unless you care to sneeze
Head in arm and hand in hand we'll haunt the seven-seas
