  • Song Lyrics:
    Hello, shoes
    I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to stand on you again

    Oh, wow
    What a horrible dream I just had

    I looked in the sky
    Where an elephant's eye
    Was looking at me
    From a bubblegum tree
    And all that I knew was
    The hole in my shoe which
    Was letting in water
    (Letting in water)
    Letting in water

    Oh, no
    What a really heavy bummer

    I walked through a field
    That just wasn't real
    With one hundred tin soldiers
    That stood at my shoulder
    And all that I knew was
    The hole in my shoe which
    Was letting in water
    (Letting in water)
    Letting in water

    Oh, no
    What's happening

    I climbed on the back of a giant anchovy
    And flew off through a gap in the clouds
    To a land where music was playing
    Incredibly loudly
    And everyone was really happy
    And having a really good time
    Except me

    I started to fall
    And suddenly woke
    And the dew on the grass
    Had soaked through my coat
    And all that I knew was
    A hole in my shoe which
    Was letting in water
    (Letting in water)
    Letting in water

    Oh, what an amazingly beautiful vibe
    I think I'm gonna get in the bath with my shoes on
    'Cause, like, it won't make any difference, right
    Oh, wow
    Hey, I feel like I'm just, like, floating
    Is anyone lighting a Joss stick?
    I must be a pretty amazing guy, right
    To have dreamed all this
    Maybe it's 'cause I ate all that cheese I found
    Under the cooker
    Oh no, hang on

    Oh, I must be back in reality again
    Oh no, look at all that washing up
    Oh no, the plughole's bunged up with cornflakes
    I wonder why they don't make whole-meal cornflakes.
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
