THEREMIN CIDER

for audio sample click here

     Pour me that theremin cider,
     To go with my Mellotron stew;
     Every kid on the block's got that Switched On Bach,
     But I've got nothing without you.

They're talking Esperanto in the milk bar,
They're banging on the A-R-P;
They kick up their earth shoes and they dance 'til dawn,
But you're a million miles from me. 

So send me your smile on a sine-wave,
Call me with an oscillating tone;
Say hi to Wendy, she's not Walter anymore,
I don't care and I don't want to know.

     Just pour me that theremin cider,
     To go with my Mellotron stew;
     Every kid on the block's got that Switched On Bach,
     But I've got nothing without you.

Now some folks they like their musique concrete
And some like their ambient drone;
Well it's a brave new world with people such as you,
Why did you leave me all alone?

Round and around like a tape loop,
When do we ever get through;
My heart sighs like an E-bow cries,
And it only sighs after you.

     So pour me that theremin cider,
     To go with my Mellotron stew;
     Every kid on the block's got that Switched On Bach,
     But I got nothing without you.
