PORPOISE SONG (THE)

Gerry Goffin and Carole King

Lyrics: 

My, my, the clock in the sky is pounding away
And there's so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
An image cannot rejoice

Wanting to be
To hear and to see
Crying to the sky
But the porpoise is laughing
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Clicks, clacks, riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
Is all right for a while
The ego sings of castles and kings and things that go
With a life of style

Wanting to feel
To know what is real
Living is a, is a lie
The porpoise is waiting
Goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
