"Furry Green Atom Bowl" as written by and Robyn Hitchcock....
Furry, green, eye
In a furry, green, hole;
It's a furry, green, atom bowl.
Furry, green, eye
In a furry, green, bowl;
It's a furry, green, atom bowl.

Spread-dud-dust, spread-dud-dust,
Spread-dud-dust, in a reaching way.
As the dead bug flares, dead bug flares,
Dead bug flares, in a swollen glow.

Furry, green, mole
In a furry, green, hole.
It's a furry, green, atom bowl.

Um...
Um...

Verdigris, verdigris.
Verdigris, verdigris.
Verdigris, verdigris.

Um...
Um...
Um...
Um...

The lid comes off like a casserole.
(The lid comes off like a casserole.)
The steam comes up the devil's nose;
He knows, he knows, he always knows.
He sits there, in a silver cone,
Drumming his fingers on a golden throne.
He loves that smell.
He loves that smell.

Um...
Um...

That swollen bowl - it blew up whole.
(That swollen bowl - it blew up whole.)
And the black was hungry when it came down,
So it ate the world for miles around.
Sticky, black, meat, (sticky, black, meat,)
Will flood your street, (will flood your street.)
Sticky, black, oil
Will boil your soil.

Furry, green, eye
In a furry, green, hole;
It's a furry, green, atom bowl.
Furry, green, eggs
On furry, green, legs.

Big ones, small ones; out they roll.
Gonna shake my pie; gonna bake my soul.
It's a crusty, old, pie, (it's a crusty old pie,)
But it's a crusty, old, world, (it's a crusty old world.)
And underneath, (underneath,)
There's roots and bulbs, (roots and bulbs;)
Gonna mix 'em all up, (gonna mix 'em all up)
In the atom bowl.

Big ones, small ones; out they roll.
Big ones, small ones; out they roll.
Big ones, small ones; out they roll,
In a new formation.
In a new formation...
In a new formation...
Spell a brand new world with the same old letters.
Um...
Um...
Um...
Um...

There's roots in the Earth and kidneys in the body.
Roots in the Earth and kidneys in the body.
Roots in the Earth and kidneys in the body.
And that's the way to stay.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
And that's the way to stay.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
There's roots in the earth and kidneys in the body.
And that's the way to stay.

    General CommentSomething about toilet humor and golf. Black bile? Promethean or Oedipal logic inversely proportionate to Dionysian Law and Order?
