Desolation Row (Happy Birthday Bob)

Praise be to Nero's Neptune

The Titanic sails at dawn

And everybody's shouting

Which side are you on?

And Ezra Pound and T.S Eliot

Fighting in the captain's tower

While calypso singers laugh at them

And fishermen hold flowers

Between the windows of the sea

Where lovely mermaids flow

And nobody has to think too much

About Desolation Row.
