Funny You Should Say That

Lead Vocal: The Flying Pickets

Well it's funny you should say that

It's a most peculiar thing

Yes it's funny you should say that

I was talking to a man

And I saw he wore a ring

Yes it's funny you should say that

And I told him of a dream

Where I caught and ate a whale

Then I woke up feeling hungry, he said

Thats a curious tale

For a dream contains a wish

In this case a giant fish

As the pressure you were under

Might have woken you from slumber

To relieve the pangs of hunger

You just dreamed yourself a dish

Well it's funny you should say that

It's a most peculiar thing

Yes it's funny you should say that

For I also met a man

And he also wore a ring

Yes it's funny you should say that

And I told him of a dream

Where the sun was at its height

But my toes were blocks of ice, he said

Let me get this right

You are tall and so your feet

Must protrude beyond the sheet

While you sleep they're unprotected

Their discomfort is detected

And it's just as I suspected

You were trying to dream some heat

But there are six white wolves

In the dead of the night

On the branch of a tree

And they have such big eyes

And they're shining so bright

All the better to see

And they have such big ears

All the better to hear

And they're listening to me

And they have such sharp teeth

All the better to eat

And they're looking at me

Well it's funny you should say that

It's a most peculiar thing

Yes it's funny you should say that

I was speaking to a man

But I don't recall a ring

Yes it's funny you should say that

And I told him of a dream

Where I turned into a snail

and he said: hmm, it is simplicity

To follow such a trail

For this creature takes his shell

Anywhere that he may roam

But work must keep you on the move

You fear your wife may disapprove

So in the dream you just remove

And take along your home

If I step on a line

Something will happen

There are rats in a jar

Something terrible will happen

Harmonic 2-Part harmony with following wolves vers extract and the above verse

intermeshed:

And they have such big eyes

And they're shining so bright

All the better to see

And they have such sharp teeth

All the better to eat

And they're looking at me

Tell me what they want (echo)

Tell me what can they be (echo)

Tell me what does it mean (echo)

Tell me what do you see (echo)

Fantasia

Nothing is what it seems

Fantasia

A world that's made out of dreams

Fantasia

Nothing is what it seems

Fantasia

Well it's funny you should say that

It's a most peculiar thing

Yes it's funny you should say that

Though I haven't met this man

So he didn't wear a ring

It's so funny you should say that

If I told him of a dream

Where I turned into a hat

That was round and made of fur, would he say

Nothing wrong with that

As I sit here in my chair

I can see your growth is spare

And it is my observation

That this caused you much frustration

So you dreamed a consolation

To replace the loss of hair

I'm going to be a mother (laughter)

I'm going to have a child (laughter)

Harmoic 5-Part with all prior verses except the main Fantasia chorus and a new

part:

There are wolves in the tree

But the tree never grew

There are rats in the jar

But the curse wasn't true

Fantasia

Nothing is what it seems

Fantasia

A world that is made out of dreams

Fantasia

Nothing is what it seems

Fantasia

A world, that's made, out of, dreams
