Count Down Meets Merlin And Amber

This song is by Harry Nilsson and appears on the album Son Of Dracula (1974).

Count down! it's been many moons since we've last seen each other!
Are you well?
Of course, am I not always well?
Great, just great!
The planet will watch over me. now tell me of yourself,
Was your journey pleasant?
It had its moments.
And your musical studies, do they progress?
I suppose so, over the years I've been into just about every considerable type of music there is, you know.
Mm, splendid.

Blink? small? what do you do?
I built my whole life to see you crowned, king. Tomorrow night my life's work will be rewarded,

Look at the throne! a people without a king for a hundred years and I'm to be the heir of the throne. Didn't I tell you?
I know you'll be a great ruler.
Now, count down, there's not much time left if you're to find any sustenance before the party, you really must go out now.
Mine is Amber.
Count down.
My name is Amber.
Count down.
Count down.
Amber, what do you know about me?
Won't you have something to eat? Or some wine?
No, thank you.
Let's see, what do I know about you? Quite a lot. Van Helsing's talked about you a great deal.
Oh, that you're an authority in the occult, that you're here to open a museum and that you're giving a performance at the preview this evening.
Is that all?
No it's not all.
What else?
A few things I've learnt myself in the last couple of hours.
That you're charming, attractive, the perfect heir
Is that all?
