  • I can see very well
    There's a boat on the reef with a broken back
    And I can see it very well
    There's a joke and I know it very well
    It's one of those that I told you long ago
    Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

    Once a fool had a good part in the play
    If it's so would I still be here today
    It's quite peculiar in a funny sort of way
    They think it's very funny everything I say
    Get a load of him, he's so insane
    You better get your coat dear
    It looks like rain

    We'll come again next Thursday afternoon
    The In-laws hope they'll see you very soon
    But is it in your conscience that you're after
    Another glimpse of the madman across the water

    I can see very well
    There's a boat on the reef with a broken back
    And I can see it very well
    There's a joke and I know it very well
    It's one of those that I told you long ago
    Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

    The ground's a long way down but I need more
    Is the nightmare black
    Or are the windows painted
    Will they come again next week
    Can my mind really take it
