Mad Not Mad

SONG COMPOSERS, LYRICS AND BACKGROUND

LYRICS

The windows are open wide
Georgie Fame for those outside
And answering the call
Blue flames leap up the wall
Who would have thought it strange
That all of us would change

Out there in the hall
The shadows leave the wall
Then we had the plan
Back when it began
And as we turn we know
That one of us will go

(Would you) dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
Over the hills and far away
Arm in arm
Mad not mad

A star-spangled sight
Silhouettes at night
Dancing over Big Ben
Seven ragged men
Up up and away
Forever and a day

(Would you) dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
Over the hills and far away
Arm in arm
Mad not mad

Dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
Beyond the reach of yesterday
What are we but our friends
Mad not mad

(Mad not mad)

Hello crazy gang
Goodbye with a bang
What are we but our friends
Sailing round the bend
In love through thick and thin
I know it will all win

(Would you) dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
Over the hills and far away
Arm in arm
Mad not mad

Dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
Beyond the reach of yesterday
What are we but our friends
Mad not mad

Dance with a mad man, mad man, mad man
As only you can
Enjoying his company
