The Moss

This song is by Cosmo Sheldrake.

Legend has it that the moss grows on the north side of the trees
Legend has it when the rains come down all the worms come up to breathe
Legend has it when the sunbeams come all the plants, they eat them with their leaves
Well, Legend has it that the earth spins round on an axis of twenty-three degrees

But have you heard the story of the rabbit in the moon
Or the cow that hopped the planets while straddling a spoon
Or she who leapt up mountains while whistling up a tune
And swapped her songs with swallows while riding on a broom

We can all learn things both many and a few
From that old hunchbacked woman who lived inside a shoe
Or the girl that sang by day and by night she ate tear soup
Or the man who drank too much and he got the brewer's droop

Come listen all ye fair maids to how the moral goes
Nobody knew and nobody knows
How the pobble was robbed of his twice-five toes
Or how the dong came to own a luminous nose
Or how the jumblies went to sea in a sieve that they rowed
And came to shore by the chankly bore where the bong trees grow
Where the Jabberwocky's small green tentacles do flow
And the quanglewangle plays in the rain and the snow

But have you heard the story of the rabbit in the moon
Or the cow that hopped the planets while straddling a spoon
Or she who leapt up mountains while whistling up a tune
And swapped her songs with swallows while riding on a broom

We can all learn things both many and a few
From that old hunchbacked woman who lived inside a shoe
Or the girl that sang by day and by night she ate tear soup
Or the man who drank too much and he got the brewer's droop
