The Lyrics

Donna vs Teddy: The Musical
Act IIb Scene 1
Donna decides to annoy Teddy by describing a dream she had
Groaned in the dark and I blasphemed
I rolled aside so nakedly
To find my mind was in a dream
Lazing with fragility

'Twas then when the hurly-burly man
Came clanging gongs above
Then when the hurly-burly man
Came banging tongs on gloves

Hurly-burly, surely surly, whirling, twirling, churlish, he clanged
Herky-jerky, quirky, perky, lurking irking turkey, he banged
Hurry-scurry, worried flurry, blurring slurring flourish, he rang

Reverie and lazing last
Uninspiring rattles passed
Clowns installed absurdity
The chiming of inanity

'Twas then when the spurty squirty man
Came flinging thongs at doves
Then when the spurty squirty man
Came swinging bongs beloved

Spurty, squirty, dirty, flirty, hurting, skirting, blurting, he spanked
Surging, splurging, verging, merging, urging, purging clergy's dirge
Spurning, yearning, learning, earning, burning, turning, churning, he pranked

Topsy-turvy, nervy, curvy, swerving, fervid dervish, he drank
Here came the holy-moly man
Screamed slangy songs in pub

Holy-moly, slowly, drolly, strolling, rolling, tolling, he twanged
Sturdy birdy, wordy, perching, lurching, curtly, pertly, he sprang
I was stirring, sight was blurry, heard the birds a-chirping, I stank
