Side 2 of Beggar’s Banquet.

the very last words that she heard

were, “hey, man! they’ve just landed!”

it was late one night in ‘69

we laid her out on a big blue blanket.

we carried her down

to the beach

through the town,

there was a storm brewing on the atlantic.

the needle dropped down

and i heard the sound

of side one of beggar’s banquet.

 

 

the congregation knelt down

and sam took a bow

he read some lines by the great romantic.

the sand flew around

the seagulls frowned

and his smile could thrill any dentist.

there were footprints on the moon

but no one could quite explain it.

she left no breath on the spoon

and no one could quite explain it.

then the needle dropped

and i heard the sound

of side two of beggar’s banquet.
