      About "Whaling Stories"

      Lyrics for Procol Harum - "Whaling Stories"

      Paling well after sixteen days, a mammoth task was set
      Sack the town, and rob the tower, and steal the alphabet
      Close the door and bar the gate, but keep the windows clean
      God's alive inside a movie! Watch the silver screen!

      Rum was served to all the traitors; pygmies held themselves in check
      Bloodhounds nosed around the houses, down dark alleys sailors crept
      Six bells struck, the pot was boiling - soup spilled out on passers-by
      Angels mumbled incantations, closely watched by God on high

      Lightning struck out - fire and brimstone! Boiling oil and shrieking steam!
      Darkness struck with molten fury, flashbulbs glorified the scene
      Not a man who had a finger, not a man who could be seen
      Nothing called (not name nor number) - Echo stormed its final scream

      Daybreak washed with sands of gladness, rotting all it rotted clean
      Windows peeped out on their neighbors, inside fireside bedsides gleam
      SHALIMAR, the trumpets chorused, angels wholly all shall take
      Those alive will meet the prophets, those at peace shall see their wake
