Unfinished Words
The Rutles


Unfinished words like these
Unfinished words like cheese and onion
Help me to write this marzipan song
Unfinished words, flying like birds
High in the sky above my deck chair

I don't like anchovies on top of strawberries and cream
Pink litmus paper shirt turning blue
Kippers and jam, custard and spam
Are only just the stuff of dreams

I can't pretend to be someone who pretends to be someone else
Or so my pretend friend tells me

Unfinished words, flying like birds
Colliding circles in the sky
Left is right and right is wrong
