THE UPSIDE-DOWN-GOLDFISH-IN-A-BOWL’S SONG

I came home and found my goldfish swimming upside down. I took it to the vet who could do nothing.
It sang this song:-

Chorus:
World’s walls are made of clear glass
Outer space is such a scream
Watch it as it floats past
Like living in a dream

There’s gravel for my ceiling
The floor is made of air
This is my natural being
It’s the same everywhere
Green weeds hang from the skyline
Food floats up from the floor
It rises to my eye line
And eating’s such a chore

Chorus…

Just watch that weird space-being
He lives out there in hell
Stuck onto his ceiling
And swinging like a bell
He’s made the world a quiver
With his flapping around
What sometimes makes me shiver
Are the ripples on the ground

Chorus…

World’s caught up by this being
As it flies through the doors
Rolling and a reeling
Chaos churns up the floors
And trees grow from hell’s skyline
Space floors are fluffy clouds
Torment flies by the eye line
Beings spin round in crowds

Chorus:
World’s walls are made of clear glass
Outer space is so inane
Chaotic as it whirls past
It’s driving me insane

Oh look at these space beings
Two now out there in hell
Stuck onto their ceiling
One cannot be too well
His eye’s gone big and shiny
It gloats below the floor
Bright lights start to blind me
And I can take no more

Chorus…
World’s walls are made of clear glass
Outer space now makes me scream
I’m watched as it floats past
It is an eerie scene

World’s grabbed now by a being
And flies around once more
Spinning and careening
Violent froths the floor
Lampposts are on hell’s skyline
Hell’s floor is a blue void
More torment’s at the eye line
This could get me annoyed

Chorus:
World’s walls are made of clear glass
They see through glass darkly
Watch them as they float past
I see them quite starkly

World’s put down by this being
And settles down once more
With gravel for a ceiling
Floor is flat as before
Green weeds hang from the skyline
Food floats up from the floor
It rises to my eye line
And eating’s such a chore

Chorus:
World’s walls are made of clear glass
Outer space is now serene
Watch it as it floats past
Like living in a dream
