You'll See Glimpses [*]
You'll see They think I'm off my crust as I creep about the gaff But I'm really getting ready to surprise them all Because I'm busy sorting out the problems of the world And when I reveal all, won't they get a crinkly mouth? I've given my all to the task at hand unstintingly When it's all over, I'll rest on my laurels Here, for a moment, is a glimpse of my plan All the kids will be happy learning things The wind will smell of wild flowers Nobody will whack each other about or nasty things All the room in the world They take me for a mug as I smile They think I'm too out of tune to mind being patronised All in all, it's been another phase in my chosen career And when my secrets are out they'll bite their silly tongues All I want for my birthday is another birthday When skies are blue, we all feel the benefit Glimpse number two for the listener Everyone will feel useful in lovely ways Trees will be firmly rooted in town and country Illness and despair will be dispensed with All the room in the world They ask me if I've heard the voices yet They don't think I know any true answers It's true that I haven't quite finished yet When it all comes out in the wash, they'll eat their words I've got all their names and addresses Later on I'll write them each a thank-you letter Before I stop, here's a last glimpse into the general future Home rule will exist in each home forever Every living thing will be another friend This wonderful state of affairs will last for always This has been got out by a friend
