​A Funny Man

This song is by Donovan and appears on the album HMS Donovan (1971) and on the album Pied Piper (2002).

One day a funny kind of man
Came walking down this street
He wore a shoe upon his head
And hats upon his feet,

He raised the shoe and smiled at me
His manners were polite
But never had I seen before
Such a funny sounding sight

He said : "Â Allow me to present
Your highness with a rose "
An taking out a current bun
He held it ti his nose

Staggered back against the wall
And the I answered : "Â well,
I never saw a rose with such
A funny looking smell ".

He the began to sing a song
And sat down on the ground
You never heard in all yollur life
Such a funny feeling sound

"Â My friend, why do you wear
2 hats upon your feet? " I said
He turned the other way about
And hopped on his head.
