From harsh and shrill and clamant, the voices grew blurred and inarticulate. Bad sentences were helped out by worse gestures, and at one table, Scabius could only express himself with his napkin, after the manner of Sir Jolly Jumble in the first part of the Soldier’s Fortune of Otway. Basalissa and Lysistrata tried to pronounce each other’s names, and became very affectionate in the attempt; and Tala, the tragedian, robed in roomy purple and wearing plume and buskin, rose to his feet and with swaying gestures began to recite one of his favourite parts. He got no further than the first line, but repeated it again and again, with fresh accents and intonations each time, and was only silenced by the approach of the asparagus that was being served by satyrs dressed in white muslin.

Beware Of The Flowers" Ok let's make this the big one for Otway Look out baby Ok let's make this the big one for Otway Look out baby Look out Pet Here's the kid Who's gonna get the Blues When you go away I'm on fire Cause I'm in love With a girl who's not the girl she was When I was out with her I saw you in the garden minute You looked so debonair Beware of the flowers Because I'm sure they're gonna get you Yeah! I won't try to say goodbye Maybe I'll just kick myself inside I really wanted to go home You might say that today Was the very last time you walked this way You'll tell him on your own Well I'd tell him where to go to baby But you know I wouldn't dare Beware of the flowers Because I'm sure they're gonna get you Yeah! Disagree, Disapprove Baby they all said that it was me Who went out in the nude How can you be so sure Baby when the love shines its pure It's a light thine shines on us Well I know someone who loves you baby And I know he really cares Beware of the flowers Because I'm sure they're gonna get you Yeah!
John Otway
