The Advent of Panurge

This song is by Gentle Giant and appears on the album Octopus (1972).

There coming over Charaton Bridge
Look do you see the man who is poor but rich?

What do you wish and where do you go?
Who are you where are you from?
Will you tell me your name?
Rest awhile call me your friend
Please stay with me I'd like to help

Then he said
How can I speak when I'm dry and my throat is burning?
So bring me aid and I'll answer your doubts
Friend in need I'd like your help
Please take me home I'll stay with you

Then said he fair Pantagruel
My name is Panurge and I have come from hell

Look at my friend
Look around my friend
Look at my friend
Look around you
Look at my friend
Take all round you
Look at my friend
Look around you
Hey, friend
Look at my friend, friend

(Improvised foreign words in middle section)

So brotherhood was made as their bond
Carried him home and provide for his needs and his shelter
This day was done as no other the like
Faithfully their vow was made
And from that day they were as one

Then said he fair Pantagruel
My name is Panurge and I have come from hell
