Did anybody see this snowman
Standing in the wind alone?
When mother did that, pick his head
And you’re feeling sleepy at.

It’s my recording, stitch remain,
But I record in his head
Knowing that too big mouth,
Oh, ice can flow away, no one knows.

Oh, shadow coming out,
While I call the story, storey that.
Oh, sample all about,
Spinning that all the time.

My powers strike me out.
Did I slip this thing on their life?
And my God buying out,
Oh, it gets me inside.

Searching for my blood flow, yes, I am,
Searching for my blood flow, yes, I am,
Searching for my blood flow, yes, I am,
Searching for my blood flow, yes, I am.

Did you see the day?
Every fever may I search in.
We can find now harder steam,
Change his kind, fly away.

Oh,
They’re all alone there, let me in.
Oh, she asked me the first day
For my name.
So she wasn’t going where I was singing.
Mushroom head, oh yeah, paperhouse,
I went day, first the game.

It wasn’t a game after this.

Oh, shadow coming out,
While I call the story, storey that.
Oh, it’s all about,
Spinning that all the time.

Shoot all the proof and lust and shout and it’s all, just you sow,
Shoot all the proof and lust and shout and it’s all, just you sow,
Shoot all the proof and lust and shout and it’s all, just you sow,
Shoot all the proof and lust and shout and it’s all, just you sow.

Searching for my blood flow,
Searching for my blood flow, let it, let it, let it flow,
Searching for my blood flow, let it, let it, let it flow,
Searching for my blood flow, let it, let it, let it flow,
Searching for my blood flow, let it, let it, let it flow.

Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow.

Ask you
And the hills are blue,
And she’s so.
Got my fever, why do I go?
Got my fever, why do I go?
Got your soles into your shoes.
Got my fever, why do I go?
Got my fever, why do I go?

Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow,
Lalalalalalalalalala, let it flow.

    General CommentAre the lyrics correct? I always assumed at the ended he was shouting 'halelelelelelelelelelela-leleleleleluwah'. Hence the song title.

    General Commentthere are a dozen variations i have seen trying to document lyrics for this song
    I will have to agree with snapman on the 'halelelelelelelelelelela-leleleleleluwah' thing

    trying to decipher most Can lyrics is like having Ray Charles for a bus driver....

    General CommentThis is the song that makes Tago Mago disc one a concept album, bringing together the mushroom and paperhouse songs (and probably Oh Yeah, too, but I couldn't say for sure). As for what it's a concept album about... God only knows.

    The funny thing is, though, that even though the music is excellent, the album cover manages to be even better.

    Vive Can.

    General CommentOne of the biggest misconceptions about this song is that it is free form .In fact it was written specifically in answer to the Velvet Underground`s "Heroin".
    Hence the repeated chorus of "searching for my bloodflow" NOT "brother".This was in direct answer to the chorus of "Heroin" "I`ve been searching for my mainline" .
    I personally talked about this with both Damo and Michael Karoli(R.I.P).
    It`s also in The Can book,so Anti Jehovahs.........you look foolish!

    General CommentDid anybody see this snowman
    Stand there with the lord
    With proper get up, hang his hat
    only you're feeling sleepy eyed

    It's my recording station, man
    But I record in his head
    Going down to big mouth
    Oh the ice came down from way up north

    Ooh, shadow coming out
    Why, it's all a story, story that
    Oh, sample all about
    Spinning that all the time

    Ah, a power strike me out
    Did I slip this thing on their life
    And my God buying out
    Who awaits me inside

    Searching for my brother, yes, I am
    Searching for my brother, yes, I am
    Searching for my brother, yes, I am
    Searching for my brother, yes, I am

    Did you see the day
    Every fever may I search him
    You can find him, out of steam
    She just cried, cried away

    Oh
    There's all a woman, just by me
    And she asked me if I'd stay
    For a night
    Something was going, I was sinking
    Mushroom head, oh yeah, paperhouse
    I wonder if I should go...


    I'll continue this later, but I don't have time now. An incredible song, and clearly indicating Suzuki's future (and unfortunate) departure in order to become a Jehovah's Witness...

    Sad things religion do to humanity...

    General CommentYes, but if everyone on Earth was a Jehova's Witness then what would be the point of continuing to go around and knock on everyone's door trying to spread your message about Jehove if everyone's already heard it. I've heard that a Jegova's Witness has to convert a certain number of people to get into heaven, if true, one of the core beliefs of the religion could not make sence, and thus the religion itself would not be able to be in existence with such a paradox, if there were no people to convert. All of humanity would be forever barred from heaven. It seems to me that, regarding this belief, the Jegova's Witnesse religion needs non Jehova's Witnesses.

    General CommentI think I read somewhere that Can's lyrics were very often stream of consciousness.

    This would seem to fit the bill if you ask me.

    General CommentMan, I always assumed Damo was asking "are you feeling sleepy yet?" in the first stanza, the 3rd started with "moon shadow coming down" and it was "searching for my front door" (i.e. tripping so hard he can't find his front door).

    Only Damo knows I suppose. Maybe he doesn't even know...
