CI was walking- down the high street- when I Aheard footsteps beChind me, and Athere was a little old Cman in Fscarlet and Cgrey, Fchuckling awayC. Well he trotted- back to my house- and he Asat beside the Ctelly, with his Atiny hands on his Ctummy, cFhuckling Caway, cFhugging all daCy. [spoken] "I ought to report you to the gnome office." "Gnome office, ha,ha,ha!" B9Ha,ha, ha!- F7Hee,hee, hee!- B9I'm a laughing gnome and you cF7an't catch me.- B9Ha,ha, ha!- F7Hee,hee, hee!- B9I'm a laughing gnome and you cA7an't catch me.-F7 Said the laughing Cgnome. Well I gave him- roasted toad-stools- And a Aglass of dandelion Cwine. Then I Aput him on a train to CEastbourne and Fcarried his Cbag and Fgave him a fag.C C"Ave you got a light boy?" "'Ere! Where do you come from?" "Gnome-man's land." "Oh,really." CIn the morning- when I woke up- he was Asitting on the edge of my Cbed- with his Abrother whose name was CFred. He'd Fbrought him Calong- to Fsing me a song.-C C"Alright let's here it?" "'Ere! what's that clicking sound?" "That's Fred. He's a metrognome." "FOwn up. I'm a gnome, ain' I?" C"Ain't you got a gnome to go to?" "No! We're gnomads." "Didn't they teach you to get your 'aircut at school? You look like a rolling gnome." "Not at the London school of Ecognomics." CNow they staying- up the chimney- and we're Aliving on caviar and Choney- 'cause they're Aearning me lots of Cmoney,writing Fcomedy Cprose for Fradio sChows. "It's the er- it's the gnome service, of course." [repeat chorus and fade]
