Heebeegeebee

This song is by England and appears on the album Garden Shed (1977).

The year was one and three when I broke free and landed on the earth
Illegitimacy was meant for me at birth

Boccaccio's voice:
"Mother please, don't see this as a blotch on your dignity
Men are wrong: they need to have a dose of humanity."

It's the fourteenth century and Tuscany was growing fast and strong
And they were pretty rich when Dante came along

Boccaccio's voice:
"Father please, I wanna be a writer of poetry
I wanna be creative in art, you see."

Father's voice:
"Now pull yourself together and get working at the bank."

HeeBeeGeeBee (x3)
He be Giovanni Boccaccio (x2)

By 1333 it dawned on me from years spent climbing rank
It wasn't hard to see... the world of banking stank

Boccaccio's voice:
"Father please, I wanna be a writer of poetry
I cannot carry on at the bank, you see."

Father's voice:
"So pull yourself together and you'll study Canon Law."

She was the love of his life... Fiammetta
He could not make her his wife... Fiammetta
She lived a life of nobility... Fiammetta
He found a poetic facility... Fiammetta

Boccaccio's voice:
"Father please, I'm very sad to hear of your bankruptcy.
But now I'm doing well in the arts, you see...
And life in swinging Naples is the only place for me."

HeeBeeGeeBee (x3)
He be Giovanni Boccaccio (x2)

She was the love of his life... Fiammetta
He could not make her his wife... Fiammetta
She lived a life of nobility... Fiammetta
He found a poetic facility... Fiammetta, the Flame, the Flame, the Flame

Fiammetta's voice:
"Dance with me, honmey, you will find lots of food for your hungry mind
Love is fun, love, but just to be sure, I won't swap him for you and end up poor."

Giovanni's response:
"You dicka-doo, dicka-doo, dicka-doo (x2). I fell in love for evermore"

Robert's response:
"Blow away the cobwebs of a medieval mind
Looking for the person that you know you'll never find
Get the HeeBeeGeeBee's of a very different kind"

She was the love of his life... Fiammetta
He could not make her his wife... Fiammetta
She lived a life of nobility... Fiammetta
He found a poetic facility... Fiammetta, the Flame, the Flame, the Flame

Doo-doo-doo, Doo-doo-doo-doo (x4). The Decameron

Blow away the cobwebs of a medieval mind
Looking for the person that you know you'll never find
Get the HeeBeeGeeBee's of a very different kind

He had a sense of humour. There's a rumour. Alleluyah! The Decameron
