about

Lyrics written circa 1974. Originally performed as a slow ballad, is one song on the oldest tape I have.

lyrics

Kings and Queens soft music machines
What ever that meant in her dreams
Nobody knows, said nobody knows the world secrete
Deep and dark and underground
Keep the sun from your city
Build your towers over me
Little girls doll lies in the road
Such a pity, she’s so pretty
It’s the Pretty things
Pretty things that go

All my life was an empty space
Broken suitcases and places with no spaces
Time went by without a trace
No bruise, no cut, scar, on my face
Kings and Queens soft music machines
And those sort of things, that make us sick
Is where tried to find my peace
As I see it, smashed out in pieces
It’s the Pretty things
Pretty things that go

Cupids Arrows,
Popping bubbles,
Making trouble
It’s the Pretty things
Pretty things
Pretty things that go

White snow drops in the spring
Covering everything, shiny and new
Like the tower of Pisa That’s leaning
Bent, old and crook, its highly educational
Open the door and cascade the light
Shining on, Shine On, shine on
Beaming on the dusty room
The shadows reflect the lost the old
It’s the Pretty things
the Pretty things that go

Cupids Arrows,
Popping bubbles,
Making trouble
It’s the Pretty things
Pretty things
Pretty things that go

KCJ RAR Project Retoons, recreating songs I wrote as a wannabe back in the 1970's and 80's. Now home recording guitars and virtual instruments to create classic rock numbers that never were; symphonic prog epics that could have been; and avant-garde psychedelic art rock grooves that surely fill a gap in music history today? Maybe not, but lots of fun! ... more
