lyrics

“An Ass By Moonlight”
By Dorian’s Organ

I was a man
A man with a plan
A plan to be good
A plan to be great
So I prayed to the moon
Raise me up from my class
But then came my doom
I was changed to an ass.

Oh I had a dream
A mare in the night
I was a donkey
An Ass by Moonlight!

I was an ass
But an ass with some class
I made love to a queen
Or that’s how it did seem.
We lay in her bed
And ate oats and cold cuts
She kissed my smooth head
And fetched me new nuts.

Oh I had a dream
A mare in the night
I was a donkey
An Ass by Moonlight!
Yes for once in my life
The future looked bright!

But as the dawn broke
The spell seemed to fade
And when I awoke
I was ‘lone in the glade

I was a man
A man with a plan
A plan to be good
A plan to be great
So I prayed to the sun
Let this dream never pass
Translate me again
So I’m always an ass

Oh give me that dream
The dream oh so fine
I’ll be a donkey
An Ass for all time!

about

Dorian's Organ Stratford Upon Avon, UK

Hey you beautiful people. My name is Dorian and I like to play with my organ, in public, for at least 45 minutes at a time. And yes people like to watch. Why? They like the way it makes them feel inside baby. I'm hoping to play at the wedding of Duke Theseus of Athens to the Amazonian Hippolyta. Search out there for #dream40 for more beautiful work people. Do it! ... more
