Trip, to, heave and ho
Up, down, to and fro
You have no word

Trip, trip
To a dream dragon
Hide your wings in a ghost tower
Sails cackling at every plate we break

Was cracked by scattered needles
Little minute gong coughs and clears his throat

Madame you see before you stand
Hey, ho, never be still
The old original favorite grand
Grasshoppers green herbarian band
and the tune they play is in us confide

So trip, to, heave and ho
Up, down, to and fro
You have no word
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
Isn't it bad so quiet there
In the wood

Meant even less to me than I thought
With a honey plow yellow,
prickly seeds
Clover Honeypots and mystic shining feed.

Well the madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey, ho
Huff the talbot
"Cheat" he cried shouting Kangaroo
So true in their tree they cried,
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

The madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey, ho
Huff the talbot
The winds they blew and the leaves did wag,
And they'll never put me in their bag,
The seas will reach and always seep,
So high you go,
So low you creep,
The wind it blows in tropical heat,
The drones the throng on mossy seats,
The squeaking door will always creep,
Two up, Two down,
We'll never meet,
So merrily trip forgo my side,
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride.
