[Danke an Geoff Rimmer (firstname.lastname@example.org)] Falls du den Film "The Valley Obscured By Clouds" nicht hast, hier sind die Lyrics der Free Four Filmversion
(fades in ...) Are the deeds of a man in his prime You shuffle in the gloom of a sick room And talk to yourself as you die
And life is a short warm moment And death is a long cold rest (*) You get your chance to try In the twinkling of an eye In eighty years with luck Or even less So take my advice } And cut yourself a slice } Das hört sich genauso And try not to make it too big } an wie "So all aboard for 'Cos things are hard to grow } the American tour... And I can tell you } you may find it hard to get 'Cos I know } off" It's better not to make yourself sick. } (jumps horribly to the following...) He was buried like a mole in a foxhole And everyone's still on the run And who is the master of foxhounds And who says the hunt has begun? (*) And who calls the tune in the courtroom (*) And who beats the funeral drum? (*) The memories of a man in his old age Are the deeds of a man in his prime You shuffle in the gloom of a sick room ... (fades out) (*) werden anders gesungen als auf dem OBC-Album.
[Anmerkung: Im Film laufen während der Musik Dialoge und diese Version ist nicht ohne Dialoge verfügbar, jedenfalls wissen wir nicht davon]
Das ist die ursprüngliche Reihenfolge:
Obscured by Clouds When You're In Burning Bridges The Gold it's in The... Wot's...uh the Deal Mudmen Childhood's End Free Four Stay Absolutely Curtains
Und das ist die neue, veränderte Reihenfolge:
Obscured by Clouds When You're In Burning Bridges The Gold... -> Free Four -> Mudmen -> Childhood's End -> Wot's ... Stay Absolutely Curtains
Der Song wurde aber nur sehr wenige Male Live gespielt.
The following is culled from the www.mfha.com web site: (Masters of Foxhounds of America):
Masters serve for designated periods and are responsible to the members or hunt committee. It is the Master who is responsible for the day's sport and he makes the decisions. The proper care and handling of hounds is his responsibility. He or she makes every effort to maintain a cordial relationship with the owners over whose lands the hunt rides. He supervises the hound breeding program,schedules the hunt meet locations and appoints the hunt staff who work for him. If he does not hunt the hounds himself, he appoints a huntsman who is sometimes a professional. Most hunts have more than one master. The Joint-Masters share responsibilities. If a master doesn't lead the field himself he appoints a fieldmaster who is responsible for the riders who follow the fieldmaster. The field master's job is to keep the field of riders close enough to enjoy watching the hounds yet not so close as to interfere with the huntsman hunting his hounds.
``and who beats the funeral drum''
The person who beats the funeral drum determines the pace of the funeral procession.
