lyrics

The man on the island
never read papers. He's
of middle height, runs a
little to stomach, he's
laughing out loud.
He chops up his cottage.
He's building a raft to
sail away from the island
and recover America.
But he runs out of wood.
So he chops up the raft
and builds a cottage to
protect him from rain.
The man wears a fur cap,
the man goes to sleep.
Tomorrow
it begins again.
