Adapted from a Poem by James Joyce, from "Chamber Music."


Lean out of the window,
I hear you singing
A merry air.

My book was closed,
I read no more,
Watching the fire dance
On the floor.

I have left my book,
I have left my room,
For I heard you singing
Through the gloom.

Singing and singing
A merry air,
Lean out of the window,

I didn't look at the tags at first, so I didn't see the round coming-- it was a nice surprise, really tied the whole song together.

Is that you on bass, Astro Zombie? It adds a nice touch.

Fake bass. MIDI.
