 The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces.

  He met the gaze--- observed the spaces between the old men's cackle.

 The minstrel in the gallery looked down on the rabbit-run.
 DEAF#mDEF#mE
 And threw away his looking-glass - saw his face in everyone.
(REST THE SAME)

He pacified the nappy-suffering, infant-bleating
one-line jokers --- T.V. documentary makers
(overfed and undertakers).
Sunday paper backgammon players --- family-scarred
and women-haters.
Then he called the band down to the stage and he
looked at all the friends he'd made.

Black Satin Dancer

 BbFCGFG
 Come, let me play with you, black satin dancer.

 BbFCGFG
 In all your giving, given is the answer.

 BbFCGFG
 Tearing life from limb and looking sweete 
 BbFCGFG
 than the brightest flower in my garden. 
 BbFCGFG
 Begging your pardon --- shedding right unreason 
 BbFCGFG
 Over sensation fly the fleeting seasons.     
 AmGAmBbEb
 Thin wind whispering on broken mandolin.
 BbFCGF
 Bending the minutes --- the hours ever turning 
 DmCF
on that old gold story of mercy.
 CFBbEbC
 Desperate breathing. Tongue nipple-teasing.
 GmDmBbFC
Your fast river flowing --- your northern fire fed.
 DmGmCAmAm/GAm/F#F
Come, black satin dancer, come softly to bed.             
Requiem

CAPO 3

 CAmDGDEmEm/D
 Well, I saw a bird today --- flying from a bush   
 CAmDDsus4
 and the wind blew it away.
 BmE7AC#mF#mF#m/E
And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play 
 DBmEE7/D
--- velvet veined. I saw it burn.
 CAmGFDmC
 With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by.
 GEmDDsus4GG/F#EmEm/DC
And, taking in the morning, I sang --- O Requiem.             

(REST THE SAME)
Well, my lady told me, ``Stay.''
I looked aside and walked away along the Strand.
But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred
close behind the taxi stand.
Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window.
Fading in the traffic; watched her go.
And taking in the morning, heard myself singing ---
O Requiem.
Here I go again.
It's the same old story.
Well, I saw a bird today --- I looked aside and walked
away along the Strand.

F(with high G) C G G/F G G/F...
and I'm probably bound to deceive you after all.

Something must be wrong with me and my brain
if I'm so painfully unrewarding
But my dreams are for dreaming and best left that way
and my zero to your power often equals nothing at all.

Double lock defense, there's no chain on my door
and I'm available for consultation
But remember your way in is also my way out,
and love's four letter word is no compensation

Black Ace dog handler I'm a waiter on skates
so don't you jump to your foresking conclusion
Cause I'm up to my deaf ears in cold breakfast trays
to be cleared before I can dine on your sweet
Sunday lunch confusion.
