02 - Get Ready

Wake up wake up
it’s time to get up
the sun is shining
Now’s the day we’ve all been waiting for
Hurry hurry
Don’t be lazy
stop your dreaming
Here’s a dream come true that you can keep for evermore.

get ready,
get ready,
get ready now!

Bats and badgers,
gnats and gadflies,
waterboat men,
Wake up for the greatest day of all
Ants and dormice
open your eyes
mobilize now!
get yourselves together for the feast and for the ball


03 - Saffron Dormouse And Lizzy Bee

Saffron Dormouse:
Pots and pans all spick and span
hanging there in a tidy row,
careful Tom don’t scuff up the floor
please don’t make me scrub it again today
we’re on our way to the ball.

Lizzy Bee:
All day long I’m working like a slave
but you’ll never hear me complain
in the sunshine or the rain.

Saffron Dormouse:
I’ve been asleep all Winter
and now the spring is here,
it’s time for you to hear my song.

Lizzy Bee:
(hope it’s not too long.)

Saffron Dormouse:
Every room is clean and bright
now we’d better be on our way,
Tom make sure you’ve got everything
lock the door and give me the key,
let’s go to see the show at the ball.

Lizzy Bee:
Back to work tomorrow, but tonight
going to eat and dance ’till I fall
at the feast and at the ball.


04 - Harlequin Hare

I’m Harlequin Hare,
I haven’t got a care
I’m going to the ball.
Bang on your drum,
tell everyone come, come all.
And part of my style,
is making you all smile.

There’s Nathaniel Gnat,
in his cavalier hat,
and a twinkle in his eye.
By the light of the moon
the ladies all swoon and sigh.
And part of his style
is making them all smile.

Grasshopper goes
wherever his nose
will tell him to go.
Fancy and free
and letting his feelings show.
And oh what a sigh
there’ll be at the ball tonight.


05 - Old Blind Mole

Old Blind Mole
it’s home sweet home down in his hole
Old Blind Mole
he don’t need me or you.

Old Blind Mole
he don’t need gasoline or coal
Old Blind Mole
he don’t need me or you.

Self contained
Always been the same
Obeys no rule
Nobody’s fool (he’s so cool).

Old Blind Mole
he never robbed and he never stole
Old Blind Mole
he don’t need me or you


07 - No Solution

Don’t start complaining now
the damage is done and you know how
don’t make a fuss you’re not so bad
if you don’t want to look so sad.

Don’t drink the water
it’s bad for you
Don’t drink the water
it’s sad for you can’t drink it anymore.

I don’t mind if you don’t care
about your house or what you wear
but these times affect us all
whether you hop or fly or crawl.

Don’t drink the water
it’s bad for you
Don’t drink the water
it’s sad for you can’t drink it anymore.

There’s a way to make it clean
it doesn’t have to be a dream
what was once can be again
I know how but I don’t know when.

Don’t drink the water
it’s bad for you
Don’t drink the water
it’s sad for you can’t drink it anymore.


08 - Behind The Smile

Behind the smile the stranger lies
beware of what is in his eyes
looks like fun but he’s after you
It’s not so funny what that smile can do.

Behind the smile there lies a face
filled with cunning but he’s full of grace
comes on friendly but he’s deadly too
beware or he’ll take care of you.
an innocence so well rehearsed
and so naive that’s all you ever see

Behind the smile you cannot see
Lies another full of mystery
Don’t be fooled by that friendly grin
the jaws of death are going to call you in.


09 - Fly Away

It’s hard to tell you why
you’ll have to wait and see
your wings will grow
and then you’ll know
the joy of being free
to float upon the air
and drift along the breeze
you’ll greet a friend
then rise again
so high above the trees.

And I can show you how
but you’ll have to make your own way.
Patience now,
tomorrow you can fly away.

Heartbreakers all
when you arrive at the Ball.
Oh how you sway,
you’re going to steal hearts away.

I know it’s not so bad
for I was once like you,
enjoy yourself
there’s nothing else
that you can say or do,
a most of all be calm,
be beautiful and shy,
your time will come,
and like the sun,
you’ll reach up to the sky.


10 - Aranea

Oh Aranea, you’re so divine
It’s hard to take my eyes of you
you really shine.

Oh Aranea, you seem so wise
and every time I look into your spider eyes
my hopeful heart just flies.

Time is flying too,
so brush your hair and lace your shoe
You know the ball won’t wait for you tonight.

Oh Aranea, you’re proud and tall.
When you descend on silken threads down to the Ball,
you’ll look the best of them all.


11 - Sitting In A Dream

I’m just passing time before the ball
playing my guitar
I don’t have to be where I don’t want to be at all
maybe I’ll go far
going nowhere sitting in a dream…
……in a dream

Sitting in a landscape full of sighs
dream away the day
making up a tune about the blueness of the skies
this is where I’ll stay
going nowhere sitting in a dream…
……in a dream

Watching as a red and white balloon
sails across my mind
in between the images that drift along my tune
smile as they unwind
going nowhere sitting in a dream…
……in a dream


12 - Waiting

I’m waiting her for something good to come my way
and I’ve been waiting patiently all day.
The sunshine begins to stretch across the sky,
I’m just waiting, oh I am waiting.

People that are restless, moving here and there,
somehow they seem to go nowhere.
So I remain and watch the world go by,
I’m just waiting, oh I am waiting.

I don’t know what I’m waiting for but that’s all right.
Every thing I need is in my sight.
I’m free as every kingfisher should be,
and I’m just waiting, oh I am waiting.


13 - Sir Maximus Mouse

He sits in seclusion
will take no intrusion into his world
they all bow their faces
from men in high places to the office girl.

He’s Sir Maximus Mouse
and he lives in a house bought with pieces of paper
if a deal’s up for grabs
or there’s cash to be had he’s the taker.

He’s facing a crisis
a drop in cheese prices force him to sell
playing with other lives
he makes sure that he survives, they can go to hell.

He’s Sir Maximus Mouse
and he lives in a house that he bought from the Devil
if they question his shares
then his books will show they’re on the level.

With luxury living
his charity giving is a clever scheme
enormous donations
help public relations foster the dream.

He’s Sir Maximus Mouse
and he lives in a house that could pass for a palace
like a fortress in which
like a demon or witch he can vanish!


15 - Together Again

I can’t recall
if there’s a ball
should we be there?

It seems to me
we ought to be
with someone somewhere.

But give us another
and pardon me brother for laughing
It’s good to be back together again.

The feeling’s good
but I know I should
be going from here

But give us another
Say where you going brother without me?
I’m glad that we were together again.


16 - Watch Out For The Bat

Watch out for the Bat now
or that’ll be that now
the price you will pay is dear
don’t be ashamed to fear
that is what makes you care
makes you beware.

Don’t worry about it
you’ll find you’re without it
the Bat’s going to take your life
he’s going to take your wife
the Bat’s going to make you plead
make you bleed.

So make no mistake there
you’ll end up as steak (rare)
so always be on your guard
for this life is hard
death is a breath away
every day.


17 - Little Chalk Blue

There’s no one here that feels no pain
deep inside we’re all the same
and when the light begins to end
we meet a friend

Some people symbolize
the hope and fears beyond our eyes
and now you shine so clear and true
believe in you

Fly on, little chalk blue
fly on, I’m following you
and everybody in the world
is following too
fly on

When you’re looked behind a door
you need your freedom there much more
and by your wings we’ll learn to see
you hold the key

Fly on, little chalk blue
fly on, I’m following you
and everybody in the world
is following too
following you
fly on


19 - Love Is All

Everybody’s got to live together
all the people got to understand
love your neighbour
like you love your brother
come and join the band.

All you need is love and understanding
ring the bell and let the people know
we’re so happy and we’re celebratin’
let your feelings show.

Love is all, love is all, can’t you hear the call
Love is all you need,
love is all you need at the Butterfly Ball

Ain’t you happy that we’re all together
at the Ball in nature’s countryside
and although we’re wearing different faces
nobody wants to hide.

Love is all and all is love and
it’s easy yes it’s so easy
at the Butterfly Ball where love is all
and it’s easy.
All you need is love and understanding
ring the bell and let the people know
we’re so happy and we’re celebratin’
let your feelings show.
Love is all yes love is all at the Butterfly Ball
Love is big love is small
love is free love is all
at the Butterfly Ball.
When your back’s to the wall
when you’re starting to fall
you get something to lean on
Love is everything
it can make you sing at the Butterfly Ball
Love is all love is all love is all.


20 - Homeward

Now the Ball is over
it’s time to get back home
I need a star to guide me
I’m feeling so alone
feeling so alone.

Morning mustn’t find me
sleeping in the sun
now the dawn is breaking
a new day just begun
new day just begun.

Glow worm lightning
darkness fighting
guiding one and all.

homeward going
moving, flowing,
homeward from the Ball.

Wings are sadly folding
here comes another day
oh I’d like to stay for ever
and dance the night away
oh dance the night away.
