High up on a mountain in a mountain tree
A joyful little frog does alchemy
and he makes liquid light and color

When I was on the mountain in the mountain tree
I drank a funky potion that the frog made me
As he was singin' a song about Aslan
And he was singin'

"Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o"

Giant birds of ancient, over-head in motion
They called to the mountain wood and troubled the ocean
Then out tumbled the Narnian children

I reeled with the dragons and their funny colored knights
'Til my eyes exploded into diamond lights
Electric lights in sapphire blue
And they were singin'

"Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o"

When the moon a lapis blue was up and tipping...dripping light
Upon the spatial spectral electrical warm and windy night
I was leaning on the sycamore dreaming

Abbly dabbly skiddaly be be bop be diddaly dee
Now high up on the mountain in my own tree
You'll find me singin' to "The Ballad Of Aslan"
And I'll be singin'

"Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o
Hey-o he comes from the Eastern sky-o"

    General CommentIt's definitely a reference to the Chronicles of Narnia. Woz loves classic literature like that, and draws upon it in his own work. I love this song. It's very catchy.

    General Commentakristen should listen to the song "down the drain" the song starts out "im staring down the drain... in a cloud of pure cocaine" id say that sounds like an admission of drug use to me if ive ever heard one.

    General CommentI don't think this song has one clear meaning. This is the product of a funky drug trip, or more likely, just random whacko beauty, ooozing from Woz's ears........ certainly catchy! I've been mumbling "hey-o, he comes from the eastern sky-o" the majority of the day.
