Obscure Music Friday: Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band

The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band were.....well, they were pretty weird! Kind of a British 1960's surrealist psychedlic pop music hall group if you know what I mean. And what lyrics! Here's the opening of Ali Baba's Camel (killer version linked to here):
You've heard of Ali-Baba
Forty thieves had he
Out for what we all want
Lots of LSD
And then it gets kind of crazy. 

Next stop: The Intro and the Outro. "And looking very relaxed, Adolf Hitler on vibes. Nice!" Digging General de Gaulle on accordion. Rather wild, General! Thank you, sir."
