Floyd the Cosmic Turtle


Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, he’s on top
Floyd, the Cosmic Turtle, swims a lot
He transmits on all the wave links, receives on only one
Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, he’s on top

Floyd, the Cosmic Turtle, roams The Void
Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, can’t avoid
The prayers of all his faithful, who know he is The One
Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, roams The Void

With flippers always moving, his shell is hard like rock
Floyd knows we all are sinners, he’s keeper of The Clock
You mock him at your peril, he doesn’t need old priests
You’ll never, ever see him swim up lonely darkened streets

Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, he is The One
Floyd the Cosmic Turtle don’t need no gun
His eyes, they are all seeing, his ears, they hear your heart
Floyd the Cosmic Turtle, he’s The One
