Momus

Don't leave

Don't go away
If you can't forgive
Believe, just to live
You must forget
Forget the times
You misunderstand
Let them slip through your hand
With the sand of time
Forget those hours
When 'perhaps' has died
At the hands of 'why'
And our lack of faith
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave
 
Me, I'll offer you pearls
Made out of the rain
That falls in a world
Where rain never falls
I'll ransack the earth
By day and by night
To cover your body
With gold and with light
I'll make a domain
Where love will be king
Love will be everything
You'll be the queen
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave
 
Don't go away
I'll invent for you
Words just meant for you
And you'll know what's meant
And I'll tell you the truth
About how other lovers
Looked into each other
And how they were moved
Then I'll read to you
The story of kings
Who lived without meeting you
Died without knowing you
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave
 
And just when you think
The volcano's expired
The craters turn pink
And the ash turns to fire
In a charred barren land
You can still be surprised
Wheat suddenly stands
Like a dream of Julys
When the sun sets
In a brilliant sky
The black and the red
Never touch as they die
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave
 
Don't go away
I won't cry anymore
I won't talk anymore
I'll crawl under the bed
And I'll watch you from there
As you smile and you dance
And I'll listen to hear
How you talk, when you laugh it's enough
In the shadow of your shadow
In the shadow of your hand
The shadow of your man
Don't go away
Don't go away
Don't leave
 

Hippopotamomus

I come from the jungle
From Popocatépetl
Chief of the clan
Hippopotamomae
But when the filthy great volcano
Wiped out my fellow hippos
I was the only individual to survive
 
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
 
We rolled in mud
Deep in the bed of the river
Were monster fat
And loved only disgusting things
We rummaged about for truffles
Then shat them out in the forest
By the fabulous tombs of Aztec kings
 
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
 
One day as I lay humping under Popocatépetl
The volcano started pumping down hot liquid metal
A flood of steaming lava erupted like Pompeii
And stuck me forever to the hippo I was fucking that day
 
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
 
Then a team of boring scientists shoved us in a crate
Packed it up with straw and then conveyed me and my mate
To the Museum of Natural History, where between two stuffed camels
They stuck us in this case labelled 'Copulating Artiodactyl Mammals'
 
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
Hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip-hip Hippopota- Hippopota-
Pop-pop-pop-pop Popocatepétl Popocatepétl pop
 
Pop-pop-pop
Hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Hip-hip-hip
Pop-pop-pop-pop Popocaté-
Hip-hip
Pop-pop Popocatepétl
 
So press your nose against the glass of the case of the Hippopotamomus
Lithe, wriggling schoolgirl, blowing kisses, making eyes
So blithely unaware, as you snigger at my lust
You'll be in this position by and by
 
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop Popocatépetl
Hip-hip-hip Hippopotamomus
Pop-pop-pop-pop
