"Epistle To Dippy" as written by and Donovan Leitch....
Look on yonder misty mountain
See the young monk meditating rhododendron forest
Over dusty years, I ask you
What's it been like being you ?
Through all levels you've been changing
Getting a little bit better no doubt,
The doctor bit was so far out.
Looking through crystal spectacles,
I can see I had your fun.
Doing us paperback reader
Made the teacher suspicious about insanity,
Fingers always touching girl.
Through all levels you've been changing
Getting a little bit better no doubt,
The doctor bit was so far out.
Looking through all kinds of windows
I can see I had your fun.
Looking through all kinds of windows
I can see I had your fun.
Looking through crystal spectacles
I can see I had your fun.
Looking through crystal spectacles
I can see I had your fun.
Rebelling against society,
Such a tiny speculating whether to be a hip or
Skip along quite merrily.
Through all levels you've been changing
Elevator in the brain hotel
Broken down a-just as well-a
Looking through crystal spectacles,
Ah, I can see I had your fun.
dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
dumb dumb dumb, dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb

    General CommentThis song is about a friend of Donovan's who was in the military and stationed in Malaysia. He wrote the song to persude him to come home. Donovan has a history of expressing his opposition to the Vietnam War with vocal pacifism.
