Big Fat Silver Aeroplane

This song is by Roy Harper and appears on the album Sophisticated Beggar (1966).

Big fat silver aeroplane a-shuffling through the sky
Full of big fat people it's a wonder you can fly
I don't like you
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
It's because I don't

Eternal East-West hedge walker turn the Sunday joint
Laughing gas is more than mete for any pointless point
Spliff me plenty
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
Well turn again Whittington

Shiny demon firework-eater tell me what you see
I see a Siamese twin universe a'growing out of me
I believe you
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
It's because you're right

Pop-eyed rabbit medal sucker, whirlwind living drowned
Sinking in the splinters of the ecstasy of sound
You'll be blind soon
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
It's because your head'll fall off

Cuckoo-headed journeyman inside your rubber Zen
The I-Ching in your buttonhole was painted with a pen
The fire is cold now
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
It's because I watered it

Polystyrene obelisk your man is on the ground
His tinsel gaze is blazing an illusion he's not found
But he's not dead yet
And d'you wanna know the reason why?
It's because he's breathing
He's breathing
