The Minotaur's Song

Album: The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter (1968)
  • Straight from the shoulder
    I think like a soldier
    I know what's right and what's wrong
    He knows what's right and what's wrong.

    I'm the original discriminating buffalo man
    And I'll do what's wrong as long as I can
    He'll do what's wrong as long as he can

    I live in a labyrinth under the sea
    Down in the dark as dark as can be
    I like the dark as dark as can be
    He likes the dark as dark as can be

    I'll even attack you or eat you whole
    Down in the dark my bone mills roll
    Porridge for my porridge bowl
    Porridge for his porridge bowl

    [Chorus]
    I'm strong as the earth from which I'm born
    He's strong as the earth from which he's born
    I can't dream well because of my horns
    He can't dream well because of his horns

    Moo

    [Chorus]

    A minotaur gets very sore
    His features they are such a bore
    His habits are predicta-bull
    Aggressively relia-bull, bull, bull

    [Chorus]

    I'm the original discriminating buffalo man
    And I'll do what's wrong as long as I can
    He'll do what's wrong as long as he can Writer/s: ROBIN WILLIAMSON
