Song#: 9

Album
Name of Song: Ian Anderson – An Ageless Melody Maker

Rollicking brightenings
Amidst flavorful yarns,
Do you want to come inside?
I’ll see you on the other side.

Lentlement wanglings
Of mistletauting flouws,
Don’t leave now oh little one
As I’m just about to start.

Chorus
Melody maker
Tunes ignoring time,
Phosphorfoaming nelistities,
Jump on now for quite the ride.
______

Lantooning mugglebrinks
Of condalessing woes,
Never in your wildest dreams
Would you think to miss the show.

There’s melodies of grandeur,
There’s melodies of softening quiet,
You’ll love what things I’ve in store for you,
Entertainment is my love.

Chorus
Melody maker
Tunes ignoring time,
Phosphorfoaming nelistities,
Jump on for quite the ride.
______

Prancing, jossling, rounding about,
I love to color the act,
I reach into, and withdraw from what
I am really singing about.

You might think there’s reasons behind everything,
It’s so outrageous to watch the show,
In my mind I simply love to entertain,
And make you feel like wohhhh!

Chorus
Melody maker
Tunes ignoring time,
Phosphorfoaming nelistities,
Jump on for quite the ride.
______

An act always comes to the end of,
Another effort of mine to say my piece,
My real true intention in melody making,
Is to say what I think and then leave.

I have a life that’s actually quite normal,
My wife and kids are who I see when I go home,
It’s a job that I’ve chosen, this entertaining,
As a way to share my melodies with one and all.

Chorus
Melody maker
Tunes ignoring time,
Phosphorfoaming nelistities,
Jump on for quite the ride.
