    He butterfly sailed on the breeze
    Past a field of barbed wire trees
    Where golden dragons chased around
    Pampered poppies on the ground
    Two silver trout sat way on high
    And watched a royal samurai
    Plant two black orchids in a box
    And strap it to a laughing fox
    A minstrel bought a crooked spoon
    He gave it to a blue baboon
    Who filled it full of virgin snow
    And watched it in the afterglow

    Fat toad stood in his ballet shoes
    Teaching sixteen kangaroos
    How to skip across a lake
    They found it hard to stay awake
    A pharaoh played a merry tune
    And watched nine cats dance on the moon
    I didn't know what all this meant
    I didn't know why I'd been sent.

    The Insignificance version of Nine Cats has the
    Following additional verse at the end:

    I threw five clocks down on my bed
    The chimes danced out on golden threads
    And turned to footprints on my wall
    Sequined tears began to fall
