     all the         cut off the           
Prevent the     from barking with a juicy      
Silence the pianos and with         drum
Bring     the coffin,     the mourners come.
Let           circle moaning overhead
           on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the             of the public       
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my        my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday      
My noon, my midnight, my       my song;
I thought                      for       I was wrong.
The           not wanted now: put out           
     up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the      
For nothing         ever come to any
