The Gift of Purpose
(lyrics by Daevid Allen)

Somewhere Hugh hears me.
He plays with us here.
Standing tall he looks as if he has always been here.
Smiling deeply in his eyes
You would never know that he understands the moment perfectly

Humor is something that happens…
Humor is that special kind of laughter that comes inside
and may never come right out up in the air
up in the air we fly
up in the air we fly
up in the air
There you can see the laughter happening everywhere

Hubert my friend I can see you now
haha, there you go!
As if you ever went away
“Hi there everyone, hi there!”
Nobody can take it away from you.
You have that particular way of smiling, driving, dry as a bone, Hugh.
High as a kite Hugh
Never been stoned at all
Just natural laughter (hahaha)
The deep drama of the bass player
The deep drama of the deep whole

One day Hugh and I were walking down the street in Canterbury town
looking for a place to eat while waiting for a little gig
I never wondered
I never imagined
I never thought that whether you were there or not but when I looked Hugh; when I looked Hugh was not there
Oh where had he gone you wonder?
where had he gone?
Not very far away at all ’cuz when I looked again he was there
when I looked again he was there again (ohh)

Playing playing up there and let us hear you in the astral plane
ohh… yee dee dee… etc.

Sing me a song of (la-din-dee)
Sing me a song of laughter
Sing me a song of deep bass note
shaking the city
shaking the city walls
Sing me a song of a big bass note
Sing me a song of a big bass note
Sing me a song song song song

Illuminate!
Illuminate!
