Hurdy Gurdy Man
Donovan Lyrics


Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I opened my eyes to take a peek
To find that I was by the sea
Gazing with tranquility

'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love

"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang

Histories of ages past
Unenlightened shadows cast
Down through all eternity
The crying of humanity

'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of love

"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurd
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang

"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
Here comes the Roly Poly Man
He's singing songs of love
"Roly poly, roly poly, holy poly poly" he sang
"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
"Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang

[George Harrison's contributional verse:]
When the truth gets buried deep
Beneath a thousand years of sleep
Time demands a turnaround
And once again the truth is found.

Awakening the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Who comes singing the songs of love
Here come the Hurdy Gurdy Men
And they're singin' the songs of love

canımız sıkkın sanki biraz

Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
I open my eyes to take a peep
To find that I was by the sea
Me gazing with tranquility

● uykumdayken bir yıldız gibi atıldım
gözlerimi bakınmak, denizin kenarında olduğumu anlamak için açtım
etrafıma huzurla bakıyordum








It was then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love
Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of love

batıl inançlı gölgeler,
insanlığa ağlayıp tüm sonsuzluğu üzüyor

He didnt draw those posters. I did.

the so called "foundation..." you never know what could be found in one)

So... just in case that doesn’t work out for you, come to North Carolina where we’ve given up on basements. Watch the Weather Channel, and when a hurricane looks likely, bring your vinyl, tape, CDS, whatever you have! Just as long as you bring Donovan for when the hurricane eye passes over — it’s more naturally mystical than any drug,
