Well, sit we down, And let us hear Barnardo speak of this.

If I have to hear the same old story
Let me at least hear a new storyteller.
If the song must be sung again
Give me a new singer.
The mind must have variety.
There must be a slight difference at least
Or the simple over and over
Will put one to sleep like the rolling wheels of a train
Whispering shh shh shh.
We learn, while lying on the floor
That the arm moving one way will teach us
Something easier, something more efficient.
The Doctor has said that the brain seizes novelty
And when it discovers a newer easier way in the variation
It will enfold it into itself where it will be as it will be from there on in.
So when you tell me this story
That I have heard before
Tell it to me new.
