• Bongo living

    When one looks at life’s great tapestry
    And balks at its immensity
    Insanity and vanity
    And shocking inhumanity
    Knavery and slavery
    And corporate mendacity
    And find ones self along the path to full exasperacity

    But No!

    One must stop! And draw back from the brink
    One must neither feel helpless or hapless or glum
    For when markets go crashing and governments slashing
    There’s nothing
    No nothing
    No honestly nothing
    Nothing that can beat a little bongo drum
    Nothing that can beat a little bongo drum

    Tippy tappy tip tap tip tap tap
    Tippy tappy tip tap tip tap tap
    Tippy tappy tip tap tip tap tap
    Everybody’s beating on a bongo drum

    Down in the caravan late at night
    The moon and the stars such a wonderful sight
    Far from the din and electric hum
    Only thing is missing is a bongo drum

    Fella in a yurt with a bongo drum

    He’s got a friend and the friend’s got a chum
    And they’re all get together with a bongo drum

    Tippy tappy tippy tappy tip tap tap

    Look there’s a freegan sitting in a skip
    Getting out the goodies a‘for it goes to the tip
    Edemami beans then a pie then a plum
    Next thing you know it’s a bongo drum

    There’s a freegan freaking out with a bongo drum?
    Freegan freaking out with a bongo drum

    Vicar in the pulpit talking to the flock
    Handing out the vino looking at the clock
    Soon in the vicarage having lots of fun
    Banging with the bishop on a bongo drum!

    Banging with the bishop on a bongo drum?
    Banging with the bishop on a bongo drum!

    Tippy tappy tippy tappy tip tap tap
    Tippy tappy tip tap a tap tap tap
    Tippy tappy tippy tappy tip tap tap
    (Repeat at will)

    Everybody’s beating on a bongo drum!
