Cherry Blossom Clinic
(Roy Wood)

Discovered that the papers have been signed
To my bed I am confined
Owing to my state of mind

Special food for thought I must be fed
the authorities have said Im going off my head

Suddenly from flowered skies
Twenty thousand butterflies
Glorify my bed in deep maroon
Turn from hot to very cool
Though it seems incredible
I could ride a bike around the moon
 
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Is there any truth in what they say
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Lock me in and throw the key away
In this sad position where I lie
From the corner of my eye
Callous friends just pass me by

Doctor pays a visit
Everyday I keep asking for my Dad
They must think I'm going mad

Lift the blankets off my face
Quick before I suffocate
Trying hard to meditate

Tell the people, "What a scene"
Write a letter to the Queen
Asking her if she can come to tea
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Is there any truth in what they say
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Lock me in and throw the key away
 
Up above the sun is high
Like a tea tray in the sky
Helicopter lands upon my bed
Phantom horses quickly fade
Turning into lemonade
Probably feel better when I'm dead
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Is there any truth in what they say
Cherry Blossom Clinic
Lock me in and throw the key away

Cherry Blossom Clinic Revisited
(Roy Wood)

(It was one morning when I woke up, and then I found out that
they'd signed some papers, and then I was gonna be kept in a
bed owing to my state of mind.
And then I found out that the authorities had said, um, that I'd
gotta have special food fed to me for my thoughts, um, and I
think it's because, because I was going off my...)

Night Of Fear
(Roy Wood)
 

The silent night has turned to a night of fear
With windows howling wind into your ear
You listen to the spirits far behind
These things you hear are too much for your mind

The bell strikes and your spine chills like the grave
The chill that turns your blood from red to grey
You know that with these things you see and hear
The silent night has turned to a night of fear

Image on your bedroom wall
Shadows marching in the hall
Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind
Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind

The green and purple lights affect your sight
Your mother cannot comfort you tonight
Your brain calls out for help that's never there
The silent night has turned to a night of fear

Image on your bedroom wall
Shadows marching in the hall
Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind
Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind

The silent night has turned to a night of fear
With windows howling wind into your ear
You listen to the spirits far behind
These things you hear are too much for your mind

Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind
Just about to flip your mind
Just about to trip your mind.
