squonk lyrics – genesis

like father like son
not flesh nor fish nor bone
a red rag hangs from an open mouth
alive at both ends but a little dead in the middle
a-tumbling and a-b*mbling he will go
all the king’s horses and all the king’s men
could never put a smile on that face

he’s a sly one, he’s a shy one
wouldn’t you be too
scared to be left all on this own
hasn’t a, hasn’t a friend to play with the ugly duckling
the pressure on, the bubble will burst before our eyes
all the while in perfect time
his tears are falling on the ground

/ genesis lyrics
