The jester hops on the leg of time,
the scourge of the wizard nation.
Magical chanting is no crime,
when you're suckled by a blind Alsatian.
Who stole the leg of time?

Seen through the eyes of Murgar's kestrel.
Where's the tiny mouse? There it is
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha

Ride a white pig to the edge of Lapland.
Why did I do that?
Why did I do that?
I don’t know.

Who stole the leg of time?
When time had one leg it couldn't march.
It stopped.
It hopped.
Who stole the leg of time?

Was it the wizards? No
Was it the goblins? No
Was it the elves? No
Was it the dwarves? Nooo
Was it the kestrels? No
Was it the satyrs? No
Was it the brain police? What?

Was it the man with the key to the door of reality,
underneath the mat of insignificance? Nope

Well, who was it then?
Was it the terrorists? No
Was it the pterodactyls? No

It was Terry!
Terry!
Terry stole the leg of time

Cockney Medley!

Oh Terry you slag you nicked the leg of time
give it back before you get a slap.
Take it down the dog and duck and leave it behind the bar
or you'll get a slap sunshine

Don't give me no rabbit!
Leave it behind the bar
Get off me sister
Leave it behind the bar
Give me half a pound
Leave it behind the bar...

Who stole the leg of time?
Terry stole the leg of time

    General CommentRight I think... that there's this guy who's trying to find out who stole the leg of time. Maybe it's Columbo. So Columbo is asking this informant and he finds out that it's this so-called Terry. So he asks Terry to bring the leg of time back, through the medium of the Cockney Middle Eight.

    But it could just as easily be about drugs I suppose. Or Courtney Love.

    General CommentTerry is the guy from Slayer
    People say that he stole something once but no-one was sure what it was, and so Mr Bailey found out :)
