lyrics

The circle was hungy
no one spoke
Little ones blinking
at spirits in the smoke
A flickering movement
a tremor in the ground
He stepped from the shadows
as tall as he was round
Ahooooo

He moved to the fire
sweat rolling down his nose
He raised up his hands
his fingers looked like toes
All the women started trembling
was it love or was it fear
He belly started growling
could dinnertime be near?!
Ahooooo

Feed us all, big and small
Feed us all Papa Ray
Papa pa-Papa pa-Papa Papa Ray

The young learn their legends
From the mumblings of the old
But what the chef fed the people
I was never told
But I heard they all were dancing
By the firelight that night
Staring at that belly of wonder
Shaking with that phantom of delight?
Ahooooo

Feed us all, big and small
Feed us all Papa
Feed us all, big and small
Feed us all Papa Ray
Papa pa-Papa pa-Papa Papa Ray
Papa
Papa
Papa Ray
Papa ...
