- In the canyons of your mind
- I will wander through your brain
- To the ventricles of your heart, my dear:
- I am pumping you again.
- 'Cross the mountains of your chest
- I will stick a Union Jack.
- To the forest of your cheek,
- Through the holes in your string vest.
- My darling, in my cardboard-coloured dreams,
- cardboard-coloured dreams
- Once again I hear your laugh.
- And I kiss, yes I kiss, your perfumed hair:
- but she's not there
- The sweet essence of giraffe.
- of giraffe
- And each time I hear your name
- frying pan, frying pan
- Oh, oh, oh my my, how it hurts
- he's in pain
- In the wardrobe of my soul,
- of my soul
- In the section labelled "shirts".
- I mean it
This version occurs on Unpeeled (recorded 29-Jul-69).
(released Aug-69) Vivian sings:
I'm in love with you again.
John Peel's sleeve notes point out that exception was taken inside and outside
the BBC at the time to such lines, so Vivian probably deliberately "toned it down"
for the album.
