From the recording Odalisque
A very indulgent song. Music by the late Dennis Hawley.
Riding the pacyderm, searching the horizon. I want to go back to count the sands of time. Dropping anchor in the silvery sea. Green, fishy veil gazing at me. I want to come back to sail the seas of time. He wore red shoes with stars sewn on. He danced in the streets and he laughed like a gong--radiant with promise. I want to come back to count the sands of time and hear the women laughing over the seas of lime.
