   eyes.....

Verse 1:
Then she appeared, Apple Venus on a half-open shell,
Then she appeared, the first photograph on Fox Talbot's gel,
I was a... little frightened, flying with my senses heightened
Cherubim cheered... Then she appeared!

Verse 2:
Then she appeared, as the giggling crew of _Mary Celeste_,
Then she appeared, pale Atlantis rising out of the West,
I was a... little dazzled, catherine-wheeled and senses frazzled
All Edward Leared... Then she appeared!

Chorus 1:
And the Sun which formerly shone in the clearest summer sky,
Suddenly just changed address, now shines from her blue eyes...

Verse 3:
Then she appeared, brittle shooting star that fell in my lap,
Then she appeared, dressed in tricolour & Phrygian cap,
I was a... little troubled, hookah with my senses bubbled,
Know it sounds weird, but she appeared!

Chorus 2:
And the Moon which formerly rode on the marbled midnight mile,
Suddenly just packed its bags, now shines from her bright smile...

Fade out repeats "Then she appeared..." cascaded with "Out of nowhere..."

Hope this isn't too sloppy, and that XTC fans enjoy it. Come on, fans, 
I know XTC is hard as hell to tab but please, join in & add something....
