HAPPY FAMILY Lyrics

Artist: King Crimson
Album: Lizard

Happy family, one hand clap, four went by and
none come back.
Brother Judas, ash and sack, swallowed aphrodisiac.
Rufus, Silas, Jonah too sang, "We'll blow our own
canoes,"
Poked a finger in the zoo, punctured all the ballyhoo

Whipped the world and beat the clock, wound up
with their share of stock.
Silver Rolls from golden rock, shaken by a knock,
knock, knock.
Happy family, wave that grin, what goes round
must surely spin;
Cheesecake, mousetrap, Grip-Pipe-Thynne cried out,
"We're not Rin Tin Tin."

Uncle Rufus grew his nose, threw away his circus
clothes
Cousin Silas grew a beard, drew another flask of
weird
Nasty Jonah grew a wife, Judas drew his pruning
knife.
Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none
came back

Happy family, pale applause, each to his revolving
doors.
Silas searching, Rufus neat, Jonah caustic, Jude
so sweet.
Let their sergeant mirror spin if we lose the barbers
win;
Happy family one hand clap, four went on but none
came back
