On the album The Real Bahamas is a 58 second or so track, recorded in 1965 at midnight in an alleyway.
Refrain line is 'I Told You People That The Judgement Coming But You Did Not Believe In Me, Halle Hallelelu uu yah'. But what is the rest of the lyric? I have puzzled over it for years. One line is 'Lord ah'm only astandin around'.
Opinons?

I can't understand any more than you did, Ewan - but I really like it.

Gee, it's nice to have you around, Phil. Thanks for making sense out of that.
