(with appologies to Donovan and George Harrison)
I am the Hurdy Gurdy Man, singing songs of love.
I know man, I’m your biggest fan.
Yeah, ever since that day when I was down by the sea, gazing with tranquility, and your music came washing over me. I’ll never forget it.
Ah. Perhaps you were just one small voice in the crying of humanity.
Hey, I don’t cry man! Come on. I was just sitting there in the unenlightened shadows, and then you came along and blew them clear out of the water.
Yes. I suppose I did. Histories of ages past, down through all eternity – colossal bore, all that. Could do with some serious blowing away.
Yep. The truth was buried deep, beneath a thousand years of sleep. Your songs are gonna save us all.
A turn around is certainly overdue. Would you like to join me, singing songs of love? At least until the truth is found?
Oh man! I would follow you anywhere! I’ll even learn how to sing! This is the best day of my life!
I like you. I think I’ll call you Roly Poly Man. You can be my songs of love and transcendental consciousness awakening side kick.
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, gurdy…..
Hmmm. Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly… I think we’re on to something.
Hurdy Gurdy man, you are THE MAN!
And together we are ON A MISSION! Rock on Roly. Let’s get down.
