:( Hello Ladies, hello Sirs.

That's the first time I write to 'Official Steve Harley Website'.

My question is:
In 'Death Trip' (L.p. 'Human Menagerie' of course),
what are the words / what are the lyrics between... let's say from the beginning of the 7th minute to minute 7 + 16 or 17 seconds?
For the poor Frenchman I am it sounds a few like (choir):
- Aaaaahhaaahhahhhhaaaahh
- All the [ ? ] say: 'Run like a [ ? ]'
- YOU take some... [ ? ]
- Sun sun sun!
(and it comes twice)
It's a choir, not the solo voice of Steve.

That question can seem to be silly. I think it's not.
I've listened to Cockney Rebels and to Steve Harley for at least... 38 or 37 years. Got the vinyls.
But on Human Menagerie's sleeve this little part of Death Trip's lyrics is NOT printed.
I've asked to several friends and visited a lot of lyrics' websites... in vain. Always the same little lack.

I thank you in advance and send you, Ladies and Sirs, my best greetings.

The lines I guess you are referring to are ......

To you aficonados,fooling with bravado
Keep me on my guard o cause a consciousness explosion
Its getting difficult to keep my mind in motion


Images of sunshine........etc is pretty is clear....

We will grow sweet ipomea to make us feel much freer
Then take a pinch of Schemeland and turn it into dreamland
Softly Lautrec she whispered in awe
Build me a picture of children at war


Hope that helps.

Hello Thierry. The choir sing with Steve the very cryptic lines:
"All the boys say "Run like a chicken, or you'll take some lickin', my son, son, son..." TWICE
That should do it! Reg
