Lyrics
we went to the fair and flew up in the air
that flew us on out blue starry skyside
there were clowns and balloons and flowers
and pinstripes

we weren't going home we were there to stay
we hung out and had fun and played
til the boys in blue came up to shoo
us all away


we payed our farre we should get to be
where we like the best in the west
don't throw us out we are still so young
is the sun going down just guess

and so we go home to regular life
go home and dream of dreams still
and think about the fun in the sun
we had when it was dayside still

no it wasn't fair we still want all the air
and fly us on up blue starry skyside
with clowns and balloons and showers
of sparkling slides

lol
tell you what -- if I do revisit the fair and do the vocals "properly" lol I'll put up the 3 part harmony a Capella just for you ;-) there will be a warning label attached!

seriously I really do sometimes try and get vocals sounding good, but I get bored and distracted so easily I ordinarily just move on, pledging to do better "next time" which never seems to come :-|

Fair
Enjoyed this. Evokes the sort of old fairground organ music, and the slightly trippy feel of a day at the fair, even with darker undertones of ghost rides and unpleasant surprises, as well as sunnier moments.

Nice.

yes!
exactly what I was shooting for, good catch! a miniature utopia/dystopia dichotomy :-) the ennui of real life contrasts with a mini escape to wonderland -- thank you for listening :-D

funky
This one has a very funky feeling... a trippy type of visit to the fair for sure. I like the 'yeah' just before one minute for some reason. I'd love to hear the backing vocals combined with the lead really closely. Evoked some good images in my mind. Thanks for sharing.

this
will be revisited most likely. really like to get some other vocalists involved :-) thanks for listening it will evolve or devolve as the case may be. the song is hundreds of years old so there's no hurry lol

I could have sworn Ive been here before
The singing on this and the way the synth follows it is very hypnotizing the leading at the end really carried me away reminded me of ELP great song!
