The Porpoise Song

I thought I'd help some poor confused surfer who came to my website looking for lyrics to the Porpoise Song. Incidentally, the song was originally by the Monkees, not the Beetles. (Although it does sound very much like a song that would have been done by the Beetles while they were on drugs.)

I guess that's the price I get for making references to obscure music in this blog. Sometimes I will get people coming here for lyrics, even though it is not a lyrics site. I'll help such people out if it's in my power. If you search through, you'll find the lyrics to The Minstrel Boy, and O Lord, It's Hard to be Humble.

My, my the clock in the sky is pounding away
There’s so much to say
A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
And it cannot rejoice

Wanting to be, to hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye

Clicks, clacks
Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs is alright 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 lie

But the porpoise is waiting good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye
