"Canyons Of Your Mind" as written by and Vivian Stanshall....
[Spoken]
This is the b-side of our platter, sports fans.
And I'm singing just for you, covered in sequins

[Sung]
In the canyons of your mind
I will wander through your brain
To the ventricles of your heart, my dear
I'm in love with you again!

'Cross the mountains of your chest
I will sticker Union Jacks
To the forest of your cheek
Through the holes in your string vest

[Spoken]
My darling, in my cardboard-coloured dreams
(Ooh, cardboard-coloured dreams)
Once again I hear your love
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
And I kiss, yes I kiss your perfumed hair
(But she's not there)
The sweet essence of giraffe

And each time I hear your name
(Frying pan, frying pan)
Oh! How it hurts
(He's in pain)
In the wardrobe of my soul
(Oh, my soul)
In the section labelled "shirts"
(Aah)
Ah! Oh!

    General CommentA great pastiche of those old 'Doo-wop' songs of the 50s. I use this song in class to demonstrate what a spoof is.
    Favourite lines? Forest of your cheek - does his lover have a facial hair problem?
    The sweet essence of Giraffe - obviously a very romantic smell
    Wardrobe of my soul/in the section labelled shirts - If only all songwriters could use such powerful metaphors, lol
    The recording of this song they show on top of the pops 2 is a classic - When Viv Stanshall delivers the spoken section wearing a huge papier mache mask is one of my all time favourite memories!
