Mayflower child
met uh 25th Century Quaker
She's uh pickin' poppies 'n'
bringin' them into her hue
Sun sifting thru and thru and thru
Letting them all and all
fill thru

Me into you me to you me to you
Into hue

Blue cheese faces
laces blue cheese
faces
faces 'n' phases 'n' phases 'n' faces

Going thru the cottage cottage
Going thru the cottage cottage
Going thru the cottage cottage
come with me baby, come with me
come with me baby, come with me

Quaker child
Quaker paper child

Flutterin' ants flutter like
fireflies
Eyes that flutter like uh
wide open shutter
eyes that flutter like uh
wide open shutter
shutter, shutter, shutter

laces laces laces
blue cheese faces
Mayflower child met uh
25th century quaker
she's uh pickin' poppies
bringin them into her hue

Sun just, sun just, sun just
sun just siftin' thru and thru
and thru....

    General CommentThats what it sounds like to me anyway! I have no idea what it means apart from that he was tripping his nads off at the time. I think its more about the sounds of the words with Beefheart. I love the line:
    "Eyes that flutter like a wide open shutter"...

    General CommentOh yeah, anyone reads this page has to hear that!
    Shutter Shutter, shutter, shuter, like a camera going off...

    How would a girl off the Mayflower react to a 25thC quaker? The subject doesn't really take off though does it? It just becomes a tonal poem.
