[female voice:] "...yon virgin."
[male voice:] "Yeah, you're right. It's 'round yon virgin.' I was wrong."

[tape snippet 2]
[male announcer:] "...ponder what's there."
[male voice:] "Ponder what's there."

[tape snippet 3]
[sped-up voices:] [?]

[spoken]
One, two, three...

Though I hear you calling, I will not answer
Though I hear you calling, I will not answer

And the sun may shine
Right through your tooth, dear
And the wind may blow
Right through my ears

Though I hear you calling, I will not answer
Oh, I hear you calling
No, I will not answer

And I broke your code
And I broke your code

[sped-up voice:] [?]

[Alternating with between normal and sped-up voices:] Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Will not answer, yeah
Though I hear you calling
No, I will not answer

The sun may shine
Out through your mouth, dear
And the wind may blow
Right through my ear

Though I hear you calling, oh I will not answer
Oh, I hear you calling, but I will not answer

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Calling
Well, I broke your code (Though I will not answer)
And I broke your code (I will not answer)
And I broke your code (will not answer)
Broke your code (And I will not answer)
Broke your code (And I will not answer
Broke your code

Though I hear you calling (hear you calling)
I will not answer (will not answer)
Though I hear you calling (I hear you calling)
I will not answer (I will not answer)
No, I will not answer (And I broke your code)
(Broke your code)
Yeah

(Though I hear you calling) The sun is shining
(I will not answer) Out to your tooth, dear
