lyrics

I’m a guest at the house of the author of this book.
It’s pleasant and comfy atmosphere, I feel like laughing.
But all of a sudden, the host starts massaging his temples,
Closing his eyes,
He says: I don’t feel too well, it’s back again, it’s time!
Time for what? – I ask him, feeling concerned.
And then he explains it all to me:
I HAVE IN MY HEAD A TUMOR THE SIZE OF AN EGG,
IT GIVES ME PAINS THAT I CAN HARDLY BEAR!
I NEED TO EAT A HANDFUL OF SHRIMP,
AND ONLY THEN DOES THE SUFFERING END.
I HAVE TO GET SOME SHRIMP, QUICKLY,
TAKE ME TO A RESTAURANT,
UP THERE, ON THE HILL, INSIDE THE CASTLE…

He starts to panic,
I say: OK.
Only Wait, I say, I don’t know how to drive.
And wait, I say again, now getting angry:
How can you eat shrimp when you are the ambassador of eating raw?
You are the spokesman for uncooked, vegetarian food,
How can you be such an impudent liar?
You fraud!

I start to hit him with my fists, and wake up soaking in sweat –
I’ve never had a stranger dream!
