Released as UK B-Side in 1970 (Also available on the LIVE! album 11-17-70)

    Ousemala    ousemala   ousemala  ________ (repeat x4)

It seems as though I've lived my life
On the bad side of the moon
To stir your dregs in sickness still
Without the rustic spoon

Common people live with me
Where the light has never shone
And the hermits flock like hummingbirds
To speak in a foreign tongue

[Chorus] (1st time: repeat once)
I'm a light world away
From the people who make me stay
Sitting on the bad side of the moon

[After repeat:
		Repeat of Intro 3x with 'ousemala']

There ain't no need for watchdogs here
To justify our ways
We live our life in manacles
The main cause of our stay

Exiled here from other worlds
My sentence comes too soon
Why should I be made to pay
On the bad side of the moon

[Chorus] (follow same instructions as above and go to coda when prompted)

[Coda]:
(Play Intro - Repate and Fade)
