Tales to Warm Your Mind

Stop, Look, Listen

CHORUS:
Listen while I tell you
Tales to warm your mind
Stop, Look, Listen
See what you can find.

VERSE:
An orangutan who can sing
Pirate ships and gypsy kings
Now a horse who learned to fly
Don’t know how. Don’t know why.

[CHORUS]

VERSE:
Buy a car with Liquorice wheels
Driven by two jellied eels
But don’t drive it at full pelt
Or the chocolate tires will melt.

[CHORUS]

VERSE:
Do you know that smiling in your sleep
Means there are secrets that you keep
Locked in boxes in your head
Wise men find them when you’re dead.

[CHORUS]

This short story collection, Tales to Harm Your Mind, takes its title from a twist on this song’s lyrics, written and recorded by the Irish Rovers for their 1969 album, “Takes to Warm Your Mind.”
