"Sunny Goodge Street" as written by and Donovan Leitch....
On the firefly platform on sunny Goodge Street
Violent hash-smoker shook a chocolate machine
Bobbed in an eating scene.

Smashing into neon streets in their stillness
Smearing their eyes on the crazy Kali goddess
Listenin' to sounds of Mingus mellow fantastic.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.

In dull house rooms with coloured lights swingin'
Strange music boxes sadly tinklin'
Drink in the sun shining all around you.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh, mm mm.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.

The magician, he sparkles in satin and velvet,
You gaze at his splendour with eyes you've not used yet.
I tell you his name is Love, Love, Love.

"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.
"My, my" - sigh

    General Commentooops... wasnt first sry

    anyway this song makes me think about a group of stoners just chilling out and trippin

    Mingus mellow fantastic - Charles Mingus it a jazz bassist/ composer from the 50's/60's(/70's?). guess Donovan liked him.

    My InterpretationWhen I first heard this on vinyl I thought the chorus went : "My Mindless Eye".
