"Rhythm King" as written by and Chris Cutler David Thomas....
There's a great moon-faced fact.
A great a-moon-faced fact.
There's a great a-moon-faced fact.
A great moon-faced fact.

Old man, don't sleep too long.
Old man, don't sleep too long.
There's a great moon-faced fact.
The river's got away and it won't go back.
That's a great moon-faced fact.
The river's got away and it won't go back.
Then it's time to depart.
- In the court of the Rhythm King.
My broken heart.
- Promise him anything.
Woe betide.
- The Lonely Highway.
The old man cried.

There's a great moon-faced fact.
Another great a-moon-faced fact.
There's a great moon-faced fact.
There's a great moon-faced fact.

There's a man gone by.
Turnin on his head,
hangin by a coat,
he was heard to say...
There's a man gone by.
Turnin on ahead,
hangin by a coat,
he was heard to say...
There's a great moon-faced fact.
It busted out the back like a paper sack.
There's a great moon-faced fact.
It busted out the back like a paper sack.
Then it's time to depart.
- In the court of the Rhythm King.
My broken heart.
- Promise him anything.
Woe betide.
- The Lonely Highway.
The old man cried.

I'm a great moon-faced fact.
Another great moon-faced fact.
I'm a great moon-faced fact.
I'm a great moon-faced fact.
Old man - wait too long,
nothing be there but the pot gone black.
Old man, don't wait too long -
nothing be there but the pot gone black.
There's a great moon-faced fact.
Another night's pourin out from a smokin stack.
There's a great moon-faced fact.
Another night's pourin out from a smokin stack.
Then it's time to depart.
- In the court of the Rhythm King.
My broken heart.
- Promise him anything.
Woe betide.
- The Lonely Highway.
The old man cried.
