  • Lyrics
  • I looked to the sky
    Where an elephant's eye
    Was looking at me
    From a bubblegum tree
    And all that I knew
    The hole in my shoe
    Was letting in water (letting in water)

    I walked through a field
    That just wasn't real
    Where a hundred tin soldiers
    Would shoot at my shoulder
    And all that I knew
    The hole in my shoe
    Was letting in water (letting in water)

    (I climbed on the back of a giant albatross
    Which flew through a crack in the cloud
    To a place where happiness reigned all year round
    Where music played ever so loudly)

    I started to fall
    And suddenly woke
    And the dew on the grass
    It stuck to my coat
    And all that I knew
    The hole in my shoe
    Was letting in water (letting in water)Writer/s: DAVE MASON

  • Mike from London, United KingdomSongfacts does not list Traffic's superbly intelligent pop hit, 'Paper Sun' from the summer of love. It offers a good pub quiz question: who shouts at the end - 'That's the one!' - as the song fades....And BTW, the whole crew of the tv series The Young Ones linked up in the 80s with Cliff Richard in a re-recording of Richard's 1959 hit, 'Livin' Doll' a charity fundraiser...
