about

A bad day for Belinda gets worse and worse. Perhaps she should have stayed in bed. The golden-eyed cat thinks so.

lyrics

The mice are all wearing hats
They’re dancing round the bed.
The cat is behind the curtain
She's golden-eyed with dread.
Belinda No-one claps her hands
and says ‘You’re all in my head.'

There she is on the front seat of the bus
At the head of the roller coaster I sit
She's taking time to forget about us
The chair-chuckers, and the one who spits
She's strapped in and ready for the ride
And the bus driver shouts 'No more room inside'.

The gnomes have stolen her bag
Under the seats they creep
Dwarves fighting in the luggage rack
Crash landing in a heap
Belinda No-one shakes her head
and asks 'Am I still asleep?'

We're back with Belinda, still strapped in
I'm in the office, and I'm getting fired
A priest asks about confession and sin
And my chair has a high back and wires
She's weeping and wailing and screaming no
And her manager says 'Going to have to let you go.'

And her brolly is a rifle
And she's taking aim from the steeple
And her breathing is calm and unhurried
And she's taking potshots at the people
And her face is calm and unworried
But it's only a brolly
Just a brolly in her hands
But it's only a brolly
A broken brolly in her hands

She hides under seats with gnomes
Dances with the mice in hats
Chats idly with the dwarves
While cuddling the golden-eyed cat
Belinda No-one smiles a smile
And says 'That, my friend, is that.'
